Here's a little taster of what he will be talking about on the evening…

“I love to talk everything about my country, Italy.

Living now in Leeds, far from my hometown of Milan, talking about products like Campari takes me back to my motherland and my childhood. Campari in my hometown is strongly connected with the bar life style of socializing and sharing incredible moments. From turning the legal age to drink (some even earlier ;-) ) people are ordering a Campari. The classic first drink is using a bottle of Campari soda poured in to a glass filled with ice then topped up with white wine, a drink calledBicicletta (bicycle). This is the essential of living the bar life in Italy, drinking Aperitivi, eating from massive free buffet, making new friends and sharing great moments with your mates.

The most famous Aperitivi and Amaros, on the market now, have their origin in Italy where this inherited tradition started many, many years ago. It is not just a fashion, it is a great tradition thanks to the family’s secret ancient recipes that still survive the years. It is still produced thanks to the same passion and respect for the tradition.

My aim is driving you in this fantastic journey through the epiphany of bitters discovering the Italian ancient roots and routes of these fantastic products. From North Italy to Sicily we are going to make your life definitely bitter! And Bitter is better!


An adventurous tour of the most iconic Italian cities from north to south to discover the roots and the secrets of the most iconic Italian products. Aperol Spritz, Negroni and much more!

Lay back and let you drive through the beauties and fantastic products that my motherland can offer! Adults only ;-) From aperitivo to after dinner treat, Amaro'
