AmbasciatoreGusto based in Florence was founded in 2008 as a company which is specialized in organizing food & wine events, distributing excellent local products abroad and enhancing the lesser known local regions and culinary traditions.
Villa Landucci, a small “boutique hotel” with 5 exclusive rooms, whose concept is based on good food and good wine, was opened in september 2012. The matching online shop to that concept with a selection of gourmet and artisan products was launched in 2015.
The term “ambasciatore”(“ambassador”) derives from the Latin word “ambaxus”. It is a word of humble origin, which means servant or highly placed minister, who acts as a representative between states. The taste is a sort of an international “diplomat” negotiating business in any nation or country.
Kitchen & Administration
A Tuscan DOP, professional in the hotel business and hiking guide with a passion for cooking, sports and nature. Together with Debora I opened Villa Landucci in 2012. All my pride is the garden area as well as the vegetable plot of the Bed & Breakfast, which I maintain very carefully when I’m not focused on showing the territory of Tuscany with all its benefits to those who want to discover this beautiful italian region.
Marketing & Promotion
My Calabrian roots, the education in the hotel business in Germany as well as the sommelier course really inspired me in the creation of AmbasciatoreGusto and Villa Landucci. My desire is to communicate the culture of food and wine through an experience trip that consists of different places, accommodations, tours, tastings and products.
Arnel was our lucky break thanks to his skills and precision. He’s working with us right from the beginning since september 2012 when we opened Villa Landucci. He previously worked for several years in the Philippines, his country of origin, and in a large hotel group in Saudi Arabia. He moved to Italy, Florence with his whole family in 2011.
