Barefoot in Luxembourg meets people: Carlotta

It’s Wednesday and it is “Barefoot in Luxembourg meets people” day! Today we interview Carlotta, the creative mind behind Hub Dot Luxembourg. 


What is your name?
Carlotta Benedetti

What do your friends call you?
Carlotta, some of them call me Cocca

Describe yourself with three words.
A dreamer, a sunny woman, overactive globetrotter.

How long have you been living in Luxembourg?
After living in US, Canada and UK, I’ve been here for 14 years.

What are you doing here?
I’m a mother of two, a wife, an architect/interior designer, a cooking teacher for kids and a food-blogger.

How do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Traveling around the globe to spread Hub Dot word.

What do you like doing in your spare time?
Hub Dot is my latest addiction!
Hub Dot is a “piazza” where women could come together to share and celebrate their stories, stories of life, work, challenges.
I love to create events where labels are removed – no senior or junior qualifications, just a choice of 5 colored Dots to wear representing the state of mind of those attending. Red ( I’m established ), yellow ( I have an idea, can you help?), green (I’m looking for inspiration), blue (I’m here to socialize), purple (I want to tell you about my charity and my story). I have discovered with HD that when you put together a group of motivated like-minded women in the same room, they love to communicate with each other – incredible things happen!

What is your most beloved place in Luxembourg?
As lover of contemporary art, definitely Mudam.

What is your favorite restaurant in Luxembourg?
Come a la Maison in the Robin du Lac store.

What is your preferred night-life spot in Luxembourg?
Octans makes amazing cocktails.

Do you have a favorite drink?
Gin tonic made with Luxembourgish gin.

Where do you do your shopping usually?
I love vintage : Troc and Secondhand4sale are my best places.

What do you like about Luxembourg life?
Luxembourg looks a calm city but I feel the underlying energy in different fields: creativity-art and culture.

What would you improve?
The weather and the customer service, in general…

What is the best place you visited in a range of 200 km from the city and that you would suggest for a daily trip?
Redu in Belgium, a small ‘Book Village’:24 bookshops and craftsmen with a large choice of secondhand books and vinyl records.

What is the best adjective to describe Luxembourg.

The “Supper Club” event they organize on October 15th is already fully booked unfortunately with a waiting list, but you can register already for the one that will be held in November:

Connecting through Philosophy of Happiness”

24th November 2015 at House 17, 17 Rue du Nord L-2229 Luxembourg at 7pm.

An evening of conversations around the philosophical theme of the pursuit of happiness.

Is happiness a psychological state of mind or is it pleasure or is it life satisfaction? Do you know which happiness you are living and how can you become aware of the true feeling of happiness that dwells in the soul?” Finger-food and drinks will be served during the event.

    1. The one I tried personally is called Mansfeld gin – I had it at Zan Zen and at Brasserie Mansfeld. But I am sure there are other places where you can try it!
