Campari Art Label Project

An ambitious and innovative project which aims at confirming the link between the brand and Art in all its multiple forms.
The label offers the artists the possibility to express their personal view and interpretation of Campari soul.
Inspired by the essence of the colour red and from the achievement obtained by this internationally famous aperitif, the artists created different artworks featuring diverse aesthetic identities bound up with the expression of a never-ending passionate beauty.
The project, representing the occasion to give a memento of 150th anniversary of Campari, is a starting point not a finishing post. Campari prove itself to be a continuously evolving brand, capable of dictating and interpreting new trends and cultures.
The Art Label Project goal is to create an evolutionary path, in which every label is a new milestone of a prismatic mosaic spreading the Campari esprit.


Timeless expression of beauty. Forever.

The label is designed to celebrate Campari’s love of art. By bringing a colourful and eye-catching twist to this classic, as well as a contemporary edge, the aim of the Campari Limited Edition is to offer an exclusive work of art in an approachable fashion.

Romero Britto creates contemporary masterpieces that evoke a spirit of hope and convey a sense of warmth.
“As soon Campari commissioned me to create a special label, I thought about the way the brand has reinvented itself over the years, and the intense emotion that it always transmits. This is why I have chosen to adapt the work of art ‘New Day’ featuring the sunrise, a newborn day, together with one of my signature elements, the heart,  to illustrate this. I believe art is too important not to share, and with this label I wanted to show that Campari is also too important not to share” states Britto.

Assume Vivid Astro Focus (AVAF) label themselves "an international art collective with artists born anytime between the 20th and 21st centuries in various part of the world and nomads". Its creation portrays a strong, independent female who is a combination of jass singer Nina Simone and the Egyptian queen Nefertiti. "We wanted to enrich the Campari female world - explains AVAF - to create something like a goddess, an icon".
AVAF has a little secret: the one spokesman who appears in public for the collective wears a mask to conceal his identity.

His Campari label is based on the concept of Campari as a magic potion due to its red colour and summarized by its iconic label, in his proposal deconstructed and rebuilt with the bright colours he frequently uses in his artwork.
"My work is abstract and it is open to various interpretations, like Campari. Similarly to my work, a Campari is like no other existing drinks: it is unique and well recognizable even when mixed in cocktails. My works are alike for their uniqueness" explains Rehberger.

In this project Vanessa Beecroft used the female image for her artistic interpretation of Campari. Consistent with much of her art, the ethereal female has a fantastic head as red as the glass of Campari that she is holding.
"A symbol of beauty, elegance anf charm, gifts that Campari has been giving to the public for 150 years" states Beecroft.
