Mario Catalano is a Lecce native, who is an expert in all of the finer things Puglia has to offer. After studying art and design in Rome, Mario moved to London, where he would live for the following 15 years. While continuing to be an artist and a painter, Mario managed top restaurants in London, taking care of important international customers. His impeccable hospitality, attention to detail, depth of knowledge, and customer service experience make him the ideal guest ambassador.
After many years away, Mario decided to return to his home, where he now lives and works as an artist in Lecce. Mario has always painted, and in the last ten years he has concentrated more of its energies in making art including painting, drawing, and graphic images. His greatest love and passion, however, is to be with people, exchanging experiences and ideas, and meeting new friends.
