A Family Story

The passion for the lake and the surrounding territory was passed down in Nicola’s family from his grandfather Achille Simonelli, who was originally from the area. He was nicknamed “American” like all the people from the lake who emigrated to America for work and then returned to their hometown. All the male children in the family, including Nicola’s uncles, were fishermen, and their passion for fishing and love for the lake permeated every aspect of their daily life.

Despite poverty, food was always abundant, and the family had a strong connection to the territory and its products, which were always valued and respected. Nicola was still very young when he heard his grandfather tell stories about how sardines were cured and left to dry in the sun, but those stories left an indelible mark on his mind and helped forge his passion for quality food and cuisine.
