I was born in Latina, Italy, and this is where I lived before I came to London.
I started to work in the coffee Industry 20 years ago, I worked for a International company in the Lazio region. Than 5 years later, I decided to open my own business.
In 2005 co-founded with my brother, Caffe’ Latino. This company sold and distributed coffee products in the Lazio region and later throughout Italy using e-commerce.
For me coffee is more than a business its a passion.
What do you do in your life in London?
I have lived in London since August 2017, where I have my Cafeteria inside Mercato Metropolitano, Elephant and Castle.
Caffe’ Latino Cafeteria brings small parts of the Italian life style to London.
London for me is source of inspiration for new business ideas.
Here I also have the pleasure of enjoying London’s cinemas, theatre, parks and markets
What is the reason to leave Italy and come to London?
I think that moving to England will be a valuable life experience for me and my family.
I asked you to choose a place in London that you like or you are tied to, what was your choice and why you made it?
I like London Bridge, because I can experience both new and old features of London and also it has all the amenities you require.
During your early times in London, did you have any problem?
Finding suitable apartments at a reasonable price was very difficult.
What do you think about this project?
It is very interesting, because Italian people can represent their culture in London.
How do you think you could support and promote Italian culture? 
By investing in the excellence of our products and partners including our employees.
