Footnotes

  • Presentation copy to the late Enzo Apicella (1922-2018), the "designer and cartoonist who revolutionised the look of Italian restaurants in Britain during the 1960s... the padrone – the godfather – of London's Italian restaurant culture" (Guardian obituary). In 1967 Apicella opened the famous Arethusa club with Alvaro Maccioni and later the Meridiana restaurant in Chelsea, where he met Warhol. He also designed the second Pizza Express restaurant in Coptic Street, the company's logo, and some eighty other branches. "Thanks to Apicella, the Pizza Express in Fulham had murals by Eduardo Paolozzi, forming in many customers' minds an unbreakable connection between pop art and pizza margherita" (op. cit.).
