The Bar Basso is actually around 1 century old as it was opened the first time in 1918.
For many many years well into the '30 it was one of Milan's finest venues and sported a typical International taste.
In fact it soon became renowed as one of the best "cocktail" bars of the city in a period in which the term itself was quite exotic in town.
Racial laws and "autarchia" (void to sell/consume any foreign good, even to use foreign words) imposed by Mussolini's fascist government did not at all impress the refined and wealthy patrons of the Bar Basso which substantially kept on going as if nothing happened and soon became an anomaly and the venue was pressured by poilice raids.
In fact my grandfather was arrested (and released the morning after) in the Bar Basso in 1934 for refusing to quit dancing the "charleston" as ordered by the police, although he was a member of the PNF, the fascist party.
I myself lived several years in Viale Abruzzi, at a short distance from the Bar Basso and sometimes have laid back and enjoyed this history-ladden atmosphere and the privilege of sipping a Negroni Sbagliato in it's place of birth (BTW...the sbagliato was born exactly to avoid using Gin, which was banned by Mussolini's laws ;-)).
ciao ragazzi!
