History of a New Limit

I Been for 5 years the barmanager of this amazing and incredible place.

The Rotonda Bistro is located within the Besana Milan, a former cimitery of 1700 were was buried for centuries over 150.000 Christians.

In the passing of the centuries became the Besana from Cemetery memorial chapel, a barracks, a clinic and only in recent years the city of Milan's restored the entire properly.

in 2014 within the Besana comes Muba, the museum of the child, along with the Rotonda Bistro. Thanks to a service limit established by the museum with imposes the use of bottles alcoholic not exceeding 21% abv and I had to upset the rules of cocktail to get the drink completely unique.

The absence of spirits like rum, vodka, whiskeys, gin, led us to discovery of a new world.

This particular limitation has intrigued many people including customers, Bartenders, media, and we are pleased to surprise them with our drinks

Another curiosity....many of our drinks are called and recall the history of Besana as the Famedio, Besanino, Cavedio, Ionicis, Pantheon.

Cocktail Art

I created cocktail art in 2013 for sharing photos of cocktail between colleagues around the world.

Once created the group became immediate feedback.

Bartender colleagues from around the world have begun to share their artistic images of cocktail art, tattoos, drawings, paintings and poems.

From about 180 countries worldwide and 24h-24h share their works of art in respect of the profession. The group currently sees over 15.000 colleagues bartender and over 30.000 photos.

Thanks to this simple but fantastic idea cocktail art has become a respected and followed the group so as to create small seminars throughout Italy that talk about how to exploit the potential of the web and social media and how through the history of the cocktail of vision cocktail art came to us



Low Abv Cocktails

Have you ever thought of not being able to use spirits within your bar? Me neither!

A new adventure in the Rotonda Bistro Milano took me to upset all my bases and my experience!

Restaurant located in a historic monument in 1700, alongside the museum of the child, which a proposed contract does not provide for bottles with alcohol over 21% abv.

A proposal extreme, where for months I studied alternative cocktail with liquor and products under 21% abv.

A unique experience, a thorough study of how to change the point of view through the history of the cocktail and the products that the market currently offers.

This Master is not just a story but encourages colleagues to stop a moment and understand that sometimes we all behind a bar facilitating our career choices.

Stimulates the development of new ideas and to understand that you never learn!

This Masterclass was already in over 60 cities all around the world.
