I was born in Florence but have lived my entire life in Dicomano where the Borgo di Villa Cellaia is located. I love working in the hospitality sector and welcoming guests as manager of Hotel Cosimo de' Medici in Florence. A dream came true to welcome guests in this stunning area of Tuscany with the restructuring of Borgo di Villa Cellaia, a project I was able to follow closely given the experience gained from my family's experience in the construction sector and my wife's support as a surveyor. I look forward to welcoming guests to our resort, ensuring their holiday and stay with us remains one of the best of their time in Tuscany.
