We fell in love with the Abruzzi in 1996, bought a house and from the beginning, we knew, one day we will be living here. In 2006 the dream came true, we now live here permanently. The Studio Mare Monti was first built to become a studio for Barbara - she is an artist. But soon, we realized - this is a magic spot, that needs to become a second home.
Myself, I am busy with writing equipment, mainly fountain pens - I restore and sell vintage collectable pens - and I build modern hand made pens on my own.
My passions - pens of course and cooking. Abruzzo is a dreamland for passionate cooking, perfect fresh food on the markets, truffels, olive oil, red and white wine...
