can a man with a pan be your superman?

Ciao, I'm Fabio!
I grew up in Italy, and my love for cooking bloomed early!

I was the go-to cook for my university friends, after mind-frying study sessions (feeding engineers requires big pans).

I incorporated cooking wisdom into all of my business enterprises, whether they be about design, technology or, well, cooking!

Working with me on your challenges is very much like cooking: we will always aim at the primal pleasure of good taste in your results.

Why Fabio?

I've been working for 20 years in many different fields.
This experience gave me that bizarre ability to think outside the box!

I helped many companies and organizations successfully deliver their projects.
I happily worked for the United Nations, Save the Children, the WWF, the Vatican, Monotype, Cinecittà, CGIAR and many others.

    You have a great message, but you still can't find the ideal tools to deliver it to your audience.
