In the verdant Campania, between the Roccamonfina volcano and the sea, there is a small valley which was in the ancient Rome already considered an oasis in which to find peace and renewal, also ideal for wine production.

At the feet of the mount Ofelio, surrounded by vines and olive groves and refreshed by a source of pure drinking water, conscious of the richness of the territory has put down its roots the Formisano family.

A philosophy of life

A philosophy of life

Over time they developed a close network of contacts with the local farmers, who carefully deal with the care of the land and its resources. For the Formisanos the food that we every day bring to the table is not only a way to feed themselves, but rather a philosophy: cooking together, exchange knowledge and experiences, celebrate and preserve the authentic traditions of their homeland. For them “to eat” is equivalent to a “political act”.

And it is through this “political act” which first involves the production of food, is taught to the children that passion and goodwill are the most important components of the production. A simple piece of bread is not only this but much more, if you bring the grain with your own hands until his ultimate form.

“For us it is a way to bring people together … and it’s just wonderful to eat with care and in a genuine way”

The “gourmet fratellis”

Raised in the countryside, in strict contact with the farmers and with a great passion for the self-production, the two Formisano brothers have realized the dream of implanting a piece of their motherland in a big city. Building a bridge between the city of Vienna and Italy they gave life to a “concept store” inspired by the traditional italian salumeria, where are offered exclusively Italian products of greater excellence and an ever new and imaginative variety of very personal “panini”.
