Gualtiero Marchesi was born in Milan in 1930. Son of a family of restaurateurs from San Zenone al Po, Marchesi has always grown in a productive culinary environment. From that moment on, he begins his own culinary path. Marchesi deepens his culinary studies among Italy, Switzerland and France, and then he opens his first Michelin-starred restaurant in Milan in 1977. In 1991, he was awarded “Commendatore della Repubblica” by Republic president Francesco Cossiga. Marchesi is one the most famous Italian chefs all over the world. He is considered the founder of modern Italian cuisine and many famous chefs such as Antonino Cannavacciuolo, Carlo Cracco, and Ernst Knam have been his pupils. He is director of Scuola Internazionale di Cucina Italiana of Colorno (Parma) and he founded the Italian Culinary Academy in New York in 2006. Marchesi has always been fond of art and music: his dishes create indissoluble bonds with cooking, music and art. An example can be found in the cutlery collection Marchesi designed for Broggi: well-balanced fusion of style and practicality, GUALTIERO MARCHESI collection aims for simplifying culinary experience without sacrificing l’art de la table.
