2015, Italian Coffee's Special Year


In 2015, Lavazza, a leading authentic Italian global family company, celebrated its 120th anniversary. Indeed, the company had many reasons to celebrate: innovation, entrepreneurship and – more importantly – a passion for quality and for providing authentic Italian coffee experiences to coffee-lovers everywhere.

As lead global PR agency, Edelman combined the opportunity to spend a year sharing the many stories Lavazza had to tell by leveraging the company’s presence at the World Expo both in and around Milan. The international fair allowed Lavazza to strategically leverage a global platform to create a year’s worth of engaging and compelling storytelling opportunities, focused on key institutional messages.
