I am Luca and I would like to share with you the experience I collected over the last two decades while in the restaurant business field. My passions lay in the different aspects of world exploration, among which tasting the vast variety of gastronomic flavors imaginable. Initially, after studies, I worked as a head barista in some of the best cafes in Milan, Italy and abroad. Later as a journalist at Corriere Della Sera. I studied history, philosophy and alimentary science, and developed a love for the art of food, that couldn't be burned out of me, and it grew to be love for Art & Food.
