On Wednesday, March 30th, the Da Bruno Sul Mare restaurant was the cultural center of the Costa del Sol with its celebration of a new edition of the Encounters with Culture series.
Encounters with Culture is an interesting initiative promoted by the experienced journalist Amparo de la Gama that aims to foster Costa del Sol culture through conversations with social and cultural personalities of the area.
Bruno Filippone was the protagonist of this new date with culture. The well-known businessman met with attendees in a round-table forum and discussed his philosophy--both in life and in business-- based on the importance of family values.
These reflections are collected in his book Almuerzo en familia con Bruno (Family Lunch with Bruno), who was also a star of the night. The book, published nearly a decade ago, remains alive not only through its essence, but also through its delicious Mediterranean recipes as well as its collection of timeless suggestions for a lifestyle that should never leave the table.
"We have little time to cook nowadays, but we can still make a good, healthy meal with little time," says Filippone, who promotes the importance of family gatherings around the table to spend time with our loved ones daily.
During the event, the founder and owner of Da Group Bruno showed his more personal side through these reflections and details of his life, revealing his humble beginnings as a student in a Franciscan seminary to his arrival in Marbella with his German wife to enjoy a vacation over 20 years ago.
Besides Bruno Filippone, the event was attended by the artist Helen Bellart, whose paintings devoted to the Venice Carnival are featured in the Da Bruno Sul Mare restaurant until next April 15. Her works are full of color and fantasy and reveal the great beauty magic of the Venetian carnival.
