We are on the outskirts of Florence in the Porta Romana neighborhood, a historic place in which even today the streets are crowded with artisanal shops. Here, when Giovanni welcomes us, even the objects and the walls of his home seem to have ancient stories to tell.
Our Guide divides his time between two great passions: on the one hand his work, the restauration of paintings, and on the other the love for good cuisine. To the question about where his passion was born, he responds: “as in all things in life, it was born from love stories”. At his table, the Lunigiana are served, simple and tasty dishes from his land of origin, as well as traditional recipes from the city of Florence. For Giovanni, cooking represents a way to feel good with others, sharing the pleasure of good food.
