Graduated in hotel business technician, I left for several years, always working in luxury hotels and prestigious places. director of the Caffè San Carlo in Turin in 1998 (one of the most beautiful and most prestigious cafes in Turin). Then I left for the Côte d’Azur. After a few attempts, I managed to enter the Casino of Montecarlo in May 2010 as a barman. Without giving up the inventiveness that lives inside me, I have participated in several National and European competitions achieving in 2012 a third place in the European Cocktail IBA Compétition in Tallin, Estonia, with AMB (association Barman Monegasca). Third place again, 6 years later in Dublin, in the Fancy category, Cocktail IBA Compétition. I did several internships from Milan to Sorrento, to improve my training. After five years of casino, I applied to join the YACHT CLUB in MONAC OR. With a lot of perseverance I proposed myself as a Barman to the direction of this extraordinary yachting scenario. So I joined in May 2015 and today I hold the position of Chef Barman … I created several cocktails … for Prince Albert of Monaco. Last October, launched with the idea of transmitting my passion, which has been with me since the age of 14, I decided to teach the crews working on yachts how to make an excellent cocktail for their owner. After some time, my management validated my project which I called “Barman Destination”, (soon a book written by me with lots of curiosities will be released).
