With an extensive academic background in Italian language combined with a specialization in cultural studies, after many years of teaching, the transition into the business world of Italian food and beverage was natural.
Beginning with the position as Director of publications for Mondadori Publishing in NY to creating special marketing program with the European Community for the introduction of Italian fruits into the USA marketplace.
The search for new challenges led to focusing on the marketing, promotion, product development and sales of main line Italian food and gourmet products: from Rocchetta and Uliveto Mineral waters, Poiatti pasta, Gusparo, etc.
The latest challenge is the creation and launch of the a startup: La Mozzarè, the US company that imports exclusively buffalo milk products into the USA and has, in less than eight months, created a footprint in markets such as Eataly, Fresh Direct with distribution by Sysco, Ace Endico, etc.
With EdesiaWW LLC, the circle is complete. It represents the realization that a company can trace, develop and market any product.
It takes passion and commitment!
