The first stop on the route through Neukölln should have been Cafe Valentin but ended up being at Amore (Facebook). A beautiful little shop filled with not only „Amore“. Kerstin Finger opened the shop last November so it is quite a new feature in Sanderstraße. The shop is the logical consequence of Kerstin following her passion for italian food. That love is shown not only in the shelves being stocked with rare and special food but in all the other goods and details. Soap, kitchenware and pasta, from unfamiliar brands and all very beautifully designed. That might be because of Kerstin Finger’s profession: graphic designer.
But while Neukölln is buzzing with a plethora of “local food, english boho style, english /american bakery“ establishments… Amore stands out, perhaps because it is not generically trendy but flowered from Kerstin’s passion for Italy and typography.
Next to my favorite Parmesan grater by “Rigamonti”, was a pasta brand I had not heard of before, then soaps, Gazzosa, purses made of leather, salami, bread … it might seem as if there is no unifying concept, but I am sure there is one. Amore seems to be the modern interpretation of a small Italian salumeria right here in Berlin, Neukölln.ade of leather, salami, bread … it might seem there is no concept, but I am sure there is one.
