All began when I started to learn the most beautiful art. That is to say, the art of making the Neapolitan pizza. In fact, my beginnings were in the big island, Manhattan in New York. Where I learnt to stretch the pizza dough by my hands and use a wood fired oven as an amataur, at the restaurant Pasquale Jones. Then the in love for making this amazing pizza crossed borders to Melbourne. And when I met 400 Gradi to continue learning the pizza that stole my heart.
