I always carry a piece of Italy in my heart - I always did
One day in october 1996 I left Italy from Florence central station with my four bags: one way to Cologne.
My bags were full of dreams, from there I started my work experience together with a language developement school. After a couple of years I had the opportunity to start in the big Hotel chain Intercontinental Hotels Groups
I had the great opportunity to grow in this renomated hotel chain and traveled between Germany and England making a lot of experiences in the 5 stars luxury Hotel
In 2007 I arrived in Austria and I changed completely my life: from the 5 starts I moved to the mountains on 1700 sourrunded by cows!
My life in Austria has been very intense: in 2008 my son Leonhard was borned, I had the opportunity to run several restaurant-business including the renomated traditional Austrian„ Plöckenhaus“ restaurant in Kötschach-Mauthen in 2015.
Finally in December 2015 a dream came true: I had the opportunity to open the Italian Restaurant Mari e Monti Hermagor.
A big chance, a great challange and finally a dream of mine became reality
