Quante cose devo ancora raccontare in questo portfolio.. una di queste è quell’avventura che mi vide protagonista nel seguire i lavori di apertura e di design della Risotteria Melotti, che si riconferma ancora un “cozy” angolo di Verona nella frenetica Big Apple!
Un articolo recentemente apparso su di un quotidiano locale mi ha riportato ai quei giorni..
L’Arena, 16 Ottobre 2016 – New York <Essere italiani fa la differenza>
Da oggi comincia la mia collaborazione con il blog Liverice.com
Grazie al contributo di persone provenienti da tutto il mondo, questo portale si pone come punto di riferimento sul Riso a 360°. Riporto qui sotto la biografia che mi presenta che trovate nella sezione Who we are del sito:
Davide Mantovani was born in Isola della Scala, a small town near Verona, Italy. Curious and passionate of beauty and human productions, he obtained a master’s degree in Cultural Heritage Sciences and Arts. He is actively involved in associations that promote and defend locals traditions. With experience in cultivation; he organizes tours, lessons, exhibitions and festivals to educate and share evaporating traditions in hopes of rejuvenating with upcoming generations.
Davide developed a passion for Rice through his family heritage. During his youth, he attended his uncle’s family-run rice farm where he gained insight and perspective about Rice. Representing the family farm would lead him to NYC transmit the atmosphere of his land in the first Italian Risotteria. In NYC he met EunYoung at Randall’s Island Urban Farm and one year later, made a partnership with the farm by growing the first Italian rice varieties in NYC and teaching about Italian risotto’s tradition.
In 2015, he worked as incoming manager for the Slow Food Movement’s pavilion in the World Exposition of Milan. For six months, he retained the role of spokesman to visitors and press about the safeguarding of biodiversity and a “local food’s communities.”
