April’s cocktail and outfit – Italy, 1960s

April’s cocktail and outfit – Italy, 1960s

April’s look for the limited edition Campari Calendar 2015 starring Eva Green is inspired by the story behind the famous Campari Orange cocktail, invented in Italy in the 1960s.

In this shot, the actress has adopted an equestrian style, wearing an outfit by Versace.

The cocktail Campari Orange was originally named after Garibaldi, an Italian soldier who fought for the Italian Unification Movement (1860), and made particular reference to his landing in Sicily. As the Campari is from Milan and the oranges are from Sicily, the cocktail represents the unification of north and south Italy.  The colours are also reminiscent of the red uniforms of Garibaldi’s men, and the Sicilian oranges.
