I was born in 1970, married and have a daughter. I live in Linguizzetta, Corsica, where I have my business. In 2014 I became the manager of the SARL Moulin Oltremonti (Linguizzetta, Corsica), where I deal with the management of the olive oil mill (two-phase Pieralisi). I have been an olive oil producer and farmer since 2008.
I created the 35 hectare olive oil company, with 15 hectares of olive groves, and a nursery for the reproduction of Corsican olive trees. From 2004 to 2009 I worked at the Hotel l’Atrachjata in Aleria (Corsica) as Director. From 1997 to 1998 I was Consultant for the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia.
From 1995 to 1997 I was a consultant for AEDES in Tajikistan. From 1993 to 1995 I was a technical consultant for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Angola. From 2014 to 2017 I followed the path to become a professional taster in O.N.A.O.O. (Imperia, Italy). From 2000 to 2001 I studied Ancient History at the University of Corsica Pascal Paoli of Corte, Corsica. From 1998 to 2000 I studied Classical Letters (Greek and Latin) at the University of Aix-en-Provence, France.
From 1992 to 1993 I obtained a Master’s degree (MSc) in Political Economy from the London School of Economics in London, UK. From 1991 to 1992 I attended the 1st year of Political Sciences at the Institute of political studies of Aix-en-Provence, France. From 1988 to 1991 I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations from the University of Sussex in Brighton, UK.
OLIVE OIL CULTURE
In recent times, organizations that deal with olive oil tasting training have multiplied. It follows that more and more people graduate as tasters.
On one hand, ONAOO is pleased to have been the initiator of a phenomenon that interests because it creates an “olive culture” that is perceived as a necessity for market and consumers.
Considering our experience, we can say that follow the whole ONAOO path is a distinctive hallmark as well as be enrolled in the INTERNATIONAL REGISTER OF ONAOO PROFESSIONAL TASTERS
This entry opens the door to all the opportunity that the oil world offers to the professional taster and is a real value, not only added, but fundamental, for the definition of an effective and convincing operating profile.
