From Abruzzo he had a number of different experiences and then moved to Bologna in Emilia Romagna, where he worked under Chef Guido Haverkock, a chef of great personality, and where he had the honor of being part of the team that contributed towards the conquest of the prestigious and coveted Michelin star. In 2012 he left Italy for Switzerland and the Canton of Ticino, where he contributed to the revival of the 5-star Villa Orselina. When the prestigious boutique hotel THE VIEW Lugano opened, he joined the kitchen of THE VIEW Fine Dining.
His philosophy: “The search for the best raw materials and their exaltation is the key to a successful kitchen. My goal is to ensure that the ingredients are the most important factor and that they enhance the final product, from the most precious to the least known. I dream of a cuisine where the client learns to respect food and becomes an integral part of the process of transforming the raw materials into a sensorial experiences. “
