Chef Luca Natalini* – Autem

Born on May 30. 1989 in Pescia, a city in the area of Pistoia (Tuscany), Luca Natalini acquired his creative flair from his grandfather, Carlo Maria Mariani, an internationally renowned artist and painter, while from his great-grandmother Valda he inherited the appreciation for good food.
From a very young age, he finds cooking the best expression of his love for art and taste. His career begins when, at just 14-years-old, he moves to Paris to follow his dream of mastering the techniques of French cuisine.
The Parisian experience is followed by one in Prague, then in Vienna, and a full five years in Russia as general supervisor of a restaurant company present throughout the country.
In 2012 he graduates from Alma, the International School of Italian Cuisine of Colorno (Parma).
In 2016 he takes part in a competition organized by Barilla (the world’s largest pasta producer) ranking among the top ten chefs.
While in Russia he is awarded the title of Young Chef for S. Pellegrino.
From 2019 he’s involved in “La prova del cuoco” (a famous Italian television program).
In 2022 he regularly attends television programs “Detto e fatto” and “Vorrei dirti che” on one of Italy’s main tv channels (Rai 2).
After running his own restaurant, Autem, in Parma, in 2020 he joins Milan’s renowned restaurant Al Pont De Ferr as Executive Chef.
On 5th May 2023 he opened Autem*, his restaurant in via Serviliano Lattuada 2, in Milan.
