I was born in Naples, the home of pizza, yet I moved to Rome over 20 years ago and now I call this incredible city my hometown. After studying communication and marketing, I decided to follow my passion for food and travel, becoming a professional journalist and food critic. After 10 years at Gambero Rosso, one of Italy’s leading Food&Wine publishers, I decided to freelance. I contribute to several magazines and websites writing about restaurants, chefs and products and I tirelessly travel all over Italy and abroad to discover new fancy restaurants as well as awesome products created by artisans. I also write about everything Italian for foreign publications. Yet, over the last few years my main focus has switched to pizza. I love this humble yet fantastic food and, after writing La Buona Pizza, a book dedicated to the work of some great Italian pizzaioli and their bond to the places they live and work in, I also launched with my co-authors Tania Mauri and Alessandra Farinelli, a pizza-related website: pizzaontheroad!
