Alberto Capatti, president of the Gualtiero Marchesi Foundation, said: “If Gualtiero Marchesi brought the nouvelle cuisine in Italy in the 80s, promoting a new Italian cuisine, the new Italian cuisine remains the priority project of the Foundation after the death of its founder. It is an inheritance and a goal to which students, enthusiasts, and scholars intend to respond with the page and with the plate, with the word and with the art.”
