Cortile della Maddalena / Beppe Fenoglio Room
Chef Federico Gallo* – Locanda del Pilone

His cuisine is an interpretation of the products of the Langhe, and his menus combine the balance and freshness of the influence of the Mediterranean tradition, rich in colours, scents and flavours with the Piedmontese tradition.
Chef Federico Gallo was born in Turin, Piedmont. After graduating in 2006, Federico started travelling, first in Italy, mainly in Tuscany, and later around the world, from Mexico to the United States. These experiences helped Federico to elegantly propose local products, creating seasonal menus inspired by the traditional raw materials of the places he visited. His cuisine is the perfect combination of tradition and innovation, mixing traditional Piedmontese and Tuscan products to create dishes impressively rich in flavours and aromas.
