S.Pellegrino & ALMA
S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna have been official supporters of ALMA, the International School of Italian Cuisine, since it’s opening in 2004.
Our brands chose ALMA as the most authoritative teaching center for Italian cuisine on a national and international level. The headquarters are in the beautiful Reggia di Colorno (Parma), located in Emilia Romagna, a region with a long culinary history.
The rector is Gualtiero Marchesi, a master of Italian Cuisine and an icon in the culture of fine dining. The school has avant-garde equipment and collaborates with prestigious foreign schools. Young chefs, bakers and sommeliers from all over the world become professionals in their fields after going through a study programm created by the best teachers in our country.
S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna also support ALMAVIVA, the annual event during which ALMA celebrates Italian Cuisine with conventions, demonstrations and cultural and culinary events that involve chefs, teachers, students, journalists, institutions and businesses supporting the school’s endeavors in Italy and throughout the world. In addition, S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna create sessions of ALMA ACADEMY—specific courses dedicated to their international community.
