Italy has always been synonymous with good eating and excellent wines. An unmistakable explosion of flavours, scents and perfumes that you can experience through the cooking sessions in one-of-a-kind location: an ancient castle near Bergamo and a modern concept store in the center of Brescia.
Cooking is like love.
It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.
Harriet Van Horne
The Malpaga Castle is a medieval hamlet immersed in 330 hectares of land. Protected by a large moat, it is a real fortress with an imposing tower embraced by a crenellated boundary wall. In its rooms, pieces of period furniture and well maintained frescoes make the best of themselves.
