Class 83, first job at the bar 2001 – I have never stopped loving this passion for a moment since then.
I started at 18 to pay for my studies at the Pub in Marino, we had fun there, and we learned a lot. We had so many spirits, those that were available at least, and the only way was to go around to see other colleagues or to travel.
It wasn’t a real job and in fact I was studying to become a physiotherapist… but then in the end you have to choose and I chose my passion, the Bar.
I decided to travel and the destination in those years was London, before the bar revolution started.
I found myself there without speaking English, but with the desire to learn and show what I could do.
London gave me a lot, but above all it made me see this work from a different point of view, hospitality.
From there I learned the language, opened one of the most beautiful 5 star hotels, the Corinthia, and met friends who are still part of my family and have become great professionals.
Back in Italy I opened many important venues, Caffe Propaganda, Stazione di Posta, managed the Bar of the Hotel Majestic and opened my pop up bar -47 crossed out, the first to make bottled cocktails, and nowdays I have been dealing with level consultancy international for four years and I am the founder and owner of DRINK | IT, where we produce our artisanal RTD cocktails and a line of Ethical Liquors.
