Davide “Dave”

Born in 1975 in Savigliano near Cuneo. For him, all begin when he was teenager, in his home kitchen, by making a mess trying to prepare a “tiramisù”.
The school background took him to engineering study and work, but when he felt the need of a change, the memory of “tiramisù’” came back to his mind suggesting the path.
He tied the passion for cooking with his old passion for the mountain, place familiar to him since childhood.
By wandering with his friend Gerardo in to the Cuneo’s valley, searching for the right place, he passed by “Borgata Chiappi” in Castelmagno territory; and as soon as he saw the building, it was love at the first sight.
Davide says the thing that mostly get his attention was the old wood oven of the village: crumbling and dismissed, but still there as symbol of the community.

Gerardo “Jerry”

Born in 1982, from Puglia. Free spirit, among his travels he cycled by himself for two years through Australia and New Zealand.
Gerardo met Davide in the summer 2018, while they were working in a mountain retreat at the Monte Rosa’s feet. Soon they understood each other and one night, after a crazy busy day at work, they realized that the time was right to built something on their own. It’s just a matter of timing and catching the right opportunity. As a famous Italian singer once said: sometime what you need is the right partner to make things happen.
After many experiences in the hospitality: learning, absorbing, for Gerardo was time to improve and prove the results of all that experiences and let them converge in something personal and nice.
He had never been in “Valle Grana”, it was unknown to him until autumn 2018; but since then, he has been fascinated by it.
He does not want to reveal his dream related to “La Font”, but it make sense: for a traveller, the arrive is just the start to new discoveries!
