Creative director of Hotel Il Pellicano MARIE-LOUISE SCIO (center) is charmed by her bogus menu. Even art director and curator ANTONIO MONFREDA (right) is curious what she might be having. PATRICK KINMONTH (left) – a writer, art editor, set and costume designer, painter, and opera director – remains unfazed, perhaps concentrating on getting the linguine with scorpion fish, cuttlefish, and cream of barley at Il Pellicano’s two-Michelin-star restaurant in Porto Ercole, Tuscany.
