Matteo's Culinary Path

Born in Siena, in 1985, Matteo is a young talent already known to the culinary critics, who awarded him with his first Michelin star in 2014 and named him among the best young talents according to L'Espresso, for the short but extraordinary experience of the Tre Lune of Calenzano. After graduating from the historic secondary school for catering and tourism Buontalenti in Florence and important experiences in Tuscany, Matteo spent more than six years in France, where he had the opportunity to grow and learn alongside great masters such as Alaine Ducasse.
