Fabrizio is also a strong believer in the Slow Food revolution. Slow Food’s Chefs is a supportive network where Italian chefs come together and make a pact with the producers of Slow Food, pledging to cook and promote their products. These Slow Food projects work to protect small-scale producers and to safeguard quality and traditional products.Antico Borgo Arcevia

We enjoyed a three days stay in this cozy Agriturismo with an excellent value for money. Compare the experience with Italian Bistronomy in a unique environment. Great dishes often prepared with only few ingredients but to perfection. A four course menu is being served for 35€ or 27,5€ when you stay half board.
