Anthony Capozzoli's family hails from Campania and Sicily. Growing up in his Nonna's kitchen taught Anthony life lessons like how important the kitchen is to the Italian home, remembering where you came from, and most importantly how delicious Italian food can be when prepared traditionally.

His most inspired memories of the Italian kitchen are jarring tomatoes, making wine, and creating homemade sausage. Italian food is food from the heart and the recipes are elegant in their simplicity.

Anthony Capozzoli decided to hang up the corporate suit and tie for a life pursuing his dream and couldn't be happier. "It was a leap of faith that has done wonders for my soul," says Anthony. His dream is to bring Italy to life for travelers and help people embrace the Italian lifestyle at home.

The radio show is another step in achieving his goal. It is a wonderful addition to his guidebook, walking tours, podcasts, and website.
