Who I am – Contact me

I am Italian-born, I lived in the USA during the last 30+ years. I used to be a computer engineer working for a major US corporation in an international marketing position. During these times, I traveled a lot between Florida and Europe; and every time I was going to Europe, I was passing through Milan, my home town, to visit my family, eat some excellent salami, and get some to bring it back with me to the States. Many times it was, unfortunately, confiscated by the agricultural control at the customs checks when re-entering the USA. It was frustrating, but I could not do anything about it.

I created this website Italian-salami.com out of love for my home country, and her beautiful products I couldn’t enjoy.

Now that real Italian salami is finally available in the USA, I want to promote the genuine products made in Italy and inform my fellow American friends about the difference with the would-be Italian-sounding substitutes that, unfortunately, are flooding the market.

Now I write, publish, and sell online Italian tourist guides to Italy, available in print and digital ebook format.

Since the debut of the Internet in 1997, I have also prepared several websites related to Italy:
Italian-visits.com – is a set of 20 sites, one for every Italian region, with info on tourism in Italy.
Cooking-Italian.com – is a website with recipes for authentic Italian cooking.
Italian-salami.com – a comprehensive guide to Italian charcuterie.
Tango-dancers.com – is where I sell books on tango.
Tango-adornos.com – is where I sell fine gold-plated tango jewelry made by Italian artisans in Chieti.

Rovagnati Mortadella with Pistachio 1 Pound Sliced

The name “mortadella” is traced back to Roman times. According to some sources, it derives from “Mortarium” (mortar), a tool used to crush the pork. The production of mortadella, however, can be located in an area of Roman influence, which extends from Emilia Romagna to Lazio. Mortadella is in fact the most famous cooked Bolognese tradition sausage, with historical origins dating back to the sixteenth century. In more recent times the area of the original production has spread to neighboring areas.

The habit of salting meat in the County of Carpegna is ancient, testified in the act of 1407. The Count of Urbino Guidantonio ordered that the market should take place in Monte Cerignone and prohibited from selling elsewhere oxen, sheep, castrated sheep, hogs and salted meat. A witness is in an elaborate part of St. Anthony Abbot, preserved in the parish of St. Leo Carpegna, where the saint is represented with a sweet ham to protect the production processes.

Bresaola della Valtellina

Ask any Italian you know what they would eat if they went on a diet after the heavy Christmas holiday meals with panettoni, torroni, pandori, chocolate etc. and I could bet anything you want that bresaola would be listed in their perfect Italian diet menu.

The "real" and best bresaola is produced in Valtellina, an area of about 200 km in the centre of the Alps, in northern Lombardy, between Italy and Switzerland, and it's available here!
