Rosa gives us a warm welcome in Sorrento, in her traditional Mediterranian-style home, furnished with a perfect meeting of antique and modern. Sorrento has a rich treasure trove of culinary delights such as pasta di Gragnano and Provolone del Monaco DOP cheese. It is also home to the world-famous Sorrento lemon, thanks to its ideal terrain and weather, and is therefore a powerhouse of limoncello production. The city boasts an enchanting view over the gulf which stretches from the nearby islands of Capri and Ischia to the silhouette of Vesuvius.

She studied at the University of Gastonomic Science in Pollenzo, where she took two courses.
