Biography

My story start after my graduation in Pesaro Professional High School for Cooking and Tourism.
Those times I was already planning the "escape" from my city Fano for the following winter with my classmates. Destination: London. 
 
A desire was already born to reinvent my job into something different than the usual, although very good and monotonous kitchens of our Adriatic Riviera. 
Landing into the big British capital at "The Dorchester", a two steps experience. Then back to Italy for military service.
 
My second London adventure begins in collaboration with the "Zafferano" by chef Giorgio Locatelli. This is my first contact with the "Michelin starred restaurants". 
But my love for Italy took my journey back to Rome. A great enthusiasm pushed me to undertake one of the most important routes, in Rome, at "Il Pagliaccio" by chef Anthony Genovese: great rigor and respect for the work were basic principles.
 
Following year the journey arrives Romagna, at restaurant "Povero Diavolo" of Torriana (Rimini), alongside to a great talent of  chef Pier Giorgio Parini: a significant work and a deep human experience. 
After the hills I landed near the sea, going to dinner at "Magnolia" of Cesenatico: a new collaboration with chef Alberto Faccani was born.
 
This is my "maturity" experience, briefly interrupted by a possibility (not to be missed) to collaborate in the kitchens of the famous "Enoteca Pinchiorri" in Florence. 
Back to "Magnolia" I was entrusted of the management of my my work and that of the whole kitchen.
 
From September 2009 until the early months of 2011, I engaged in the hilarious participation in the program "La prova del cuoco" on Italian main TV broadcast RAI 1, presented by Antonella Clerici.
 
On summer 2011 the opportunity to make myself known in our area at the Agriturismo Bartolacci, thus rekindling the relationship with my land that had been interrupted some years before. 
 
Since March 2012 my dream began, what to cook for all of you: this time, in my restaurant. Back to my roots, in the city where I was born and from where I started, Fano.
 
Since spring 2014 my professional and private life moved to Rome where I still live with my family.
