A bit of biography
M arco is a charismatic fellow with a beautiful presence.
At just 31, his life is a fascinating mix of experiences: a solid education (Degree in Economics Marketing and Finance at the prestigious LUISS university in Rome with 110 cum laude) sport achievements (excellent dorsal swimmer who took part in the Italian Championships) and extensive travels all over the world.
At a very young age he opened up and managed commercial activities in Italy, UK and Australia, at Sidney and Melbourne.
Marco is the talented scion of a dynasty of hoteliers and restauranteurs and therefore it is no coincidence that his great passions are food, wine and hospitality. He grew up in the “Lillotatini” family restaurant in Panicale (one of the most prestigious restaurants of Umbria), where he carefully followed the advice of his mother Patrizia and subsequently became a sommelier.
In February 2016 he established his jewel in Amsterdam “La Maschera del Lillotatini” erving typically Umbrian and Tuscan dishes and which was classified in 2018 among the top 10 Italian restaurants in the Netherlands, in the Italian Magazine guide and is also mentioned in the famous Gault & Millau guide.
On December 2019 he opened his second restaurant in Amsterdam, ‘Momenti-Italian Cuisine’.
After few months Momenti is already an absolute reference for all the dutch and international italian food lovers in the city.
Also the famous dutch magazine ‘Het Parool’ decided to write a great article about the recently opened restaurant.
The synthesis of this background strongly brings him to share his know-how and his great passions that have become his job today: Promoter, Advisor and International trainer for entrepreneurs in the restaurant and oenology sector. The courses he organises are very popular and their success is also linked to his teaching technique, where his experiences and anecdotes about himself always fascinate the participants.
