Born in Giaveno in 1985 in a family where cooking has always played a key role, and raised in Almese, a small provincial village at the foot of the Alps, where the rhythms dictated by the seasons still make a difference.
Michelangelo has always found in the natural element his own habitat and in cooking a reminder of his traditions, his home, his family. He has studied, travelled, and met people who have changed his way of seeing things. He had the honour of being part of Gualtiero Marchesi’s brigade, and of working alongside Stefano Baiocco. This gave him the motivation to move to France for six years. Here, Alain Ducasse, Pierre Gagnaire, Yannick Alléno and Marc Meneau trained him to excellence, rigour and to demand the best from himself and those working with him. His meeting with Fréderic Lalos, the best baker in France, brought him to further hone his skills in the boulengerie. It was in France that he learnt how to run a kitchen, and it was always there that he understood that the time had come to test himself as executive chef.
He returned to Italy in 2014 and the recognitions arrived quickly. In 2017 he was awarded the *Michelin Star, and only two years later he would do the same with the **Michelin Star. In 2018, he is Emerging Chef according to Gambero Rosso’s Guida Ristoranti d’Italia. In 2021, he was awarded Best Chef of the Year according to the Identità Golose Guide and included in The Best Chef Awards.
Today, he is ready to write a new chapter in his life, as part of La Rei Natura, the gastronomic restaurant of the Boscareto Resort & Spa, a 5-star luxury hotel in Serralunga d’Alba (Cn).
