Unit 05- Researching Environment - Traditional Italian Ristorante II

As a continuation of the previous post, I will be breaking down the research on objects visible on the pictures and ads, previously showed, and that I want to feature in my scene.

Checked Table Cloth

The famous checked cloth is one of the "must have" items in my scene, as it will help to stereotype my restaurant.

Bottle Candle

Once again, another item that decorates the restaurant but also creates atmosphere and character.

Italian food

Italian culture is best known for its beautiful almost sung language and its really tasty food. Although the food wont be the really big thing in my scene, my character will interact with it by spoiling its taste. Thus, I found fundamental to define a dish, that is typical Italian, and also will characterize the restaurant again.
And the winning dish is the famous meatballs, because everybody know how they look like and everybody know how they taste like, and hopefully everybody will know they' re a typical dish from Italy , and not from Ikea. :P

Spaghetti Meatballs

Also, i looked at other Italian dishes, to have an idea how they look and how they are served


Spaghetti Carbonara


After looking at so many dishes, i found 2 interesting things, one being, by coincidence or not, the food actually share a colour pallete visible in the italian flag and also in the interior of the restaurant really helpful indeed, and secondly, after looking at so many dishes I feel starving :) Yumm.... :P

The Secondary Objects/ Characters

These are the objects perceive at the table where our Pepper mill will firstly stand, the same objects that will be picked first.

Olive Oil

Rustic Italian Bread


Parmesan Cheese
