Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of political and social changes, with roots dating back to the 4th century B.C. The Italian cuisine itself has been influenced by the cuisine of ancient Greece, ancient Rome, Byzantine, Hebrew and Arabic and Norman. Important changes were made with the discovery of the new World and the introduction of new ingredients such as potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and maize, now fundamental in the kitchen but introduced in quantities only in the eighteenth century. Italian cuisine is known for its diversity at the regional level, abundance in taste and condiments, is also considered the most famous in the world, with influences at international level, so much so that the American television broadcaster CNN places it at the first Place among the most appreciated cuisines on a global level. 

The kitchen is a place you love or hate

It can't be both, or you like it or you don't like it.

It takes Time, Fatigue, Stress,

When others have fun, you are at work

When others are on Holiday you're at work

When others get sick and stay at home, you're at work

When others, on Saturdays and Sundays are at home, you are at work

When it's Christmas, New Year, Valentine's Day, Easter, the others are on Holiday  you are at Work 

It takes you so much about  your life, but it also gives you satisfaction

If you now understand what it's like to cook, you're ready for this beautiful world, otherwise you'd better change your job

Making a right dish, or doing it wrong, requires the same time, so better do it right

I remain always tied to my tradition, and in my dishes there is always the imprint of my area where I grew up, the Lunigiana, Bagnone

The Lunigiana (in Latin Lunensis Ager) is an Italian historical region, divided from the administrative point of view between Liguria and Tuscany. It derives its name from the ancient Roman city of Luni, located at the mouth of the Magra River, not far from where Sarzana stands today: The influence of the city, which became the most important port of the Ligurian Sea, was such as to connote with its name the entire territory Surrounding.

Lunigiana is a land whose territory is divided between that of the regions of Tuscany, Liguria and Emilia Romagna
