Union Square’s Pasta Museum: Buitoni Ads

ravoli with bacon

Introducing Buitoni’s new ad campaign. I found it while exiting the Union Square station on the day I started this blog…it was kismet.

It is a series of Pasta dishes using Buitoni’s fresh ravioli, tortellini and cannelloni varieties  framed in gold and hung on the subway walls with a descriptive plaque on the side detailing the dish, like in a museum. My choice is the wild mushroom stuffed ravioli with butter and sage (last photo). It’s a classic, clean, simple and earthy combo.

Although found in your local grocery store, Buitoni isn’t exactly highbrow pasta art but I found the campaign clever and effective. It’s refreshing that something so comforting, traditional and hardy made a very prominent presence in one of the biggest subway hubs in NYC where tens of thousands of people hustle and bustle through each day. I hope it gives them the feeling to relax, unwind with some wine, friends and a good home cooked bowl of Pasta (any variety will do)

Ahhh, the art of pasta!
