Matteo class 99 studied in one of the most renowned School of Hotel Management and Catering in Italy, the school Ferdinando Martini.
He started working immediately in important restaurants: at the Ora d’Aria restaurant with a Michelin star in Florence followed by chef Marco Stabile, then on the Island of Elba at the restaurant of the Hotel Villa Ottone, a renowned five-star hotel overlooking the coast Elba.
After completing his studies, he worked Principino a Mare, one of the most renowned bathing establishments in Versilia, where he joined chef Alessandro Pezzi as chef de partie.
His last experience took place in England at the Roux at Skindles, the new restaurant of Michel & Alan Roux, two champions of French cuisine.
Through his different work experiences he has grasped the different aspects of what for him today is the kitchen: the taste, the flavors and the stimulation of our senses but also the teamwork, the joy in the kitchen and the passion for one’s own work. What excites him most is being able to transmit his culinary tradition that has accompanied him since he was a child for all of Tuscany, up to the decision at the age of 12 that this would be his future.
Today he works in Opera in the Kitchen, an experience where the dishes of the Italian tradition are rediscovered that allows him to transmit the history and the tradition through the kitchen, in one of the most incredible landscapes that Italy can offer, the Chianti region.
