Nico Marin: the passion of a man.

Our history is the history of a great passion that accompanied the personal and professional experience of Nico Marin, well known antiquarian of Friuli region, always looking for the traditions that made the Italian cuisine so great.
His engagement, matured in the medieval and charming alleys of Spilimbergo (PN) and directed to the cultural sides linked to the love for good food, has highlighted the requirement of rediscoving the instruments at the base of gastronomic evolution of our cuisine.
Nico Marin's copper pots come to us through the regaining of Italian Renaissance traditions.
