Lionello Cera. All the photos are from Brambilla-Serrani
«My father was a fisherman, and he had to use the small fish that nobody at the market wanted». At the 15th edition of Identità Golose, the speech given by Lionello Cera, patron chef at two-starred Antica Osteria Cera in Campagna Lupia (Venice) started with a family flashback: «And my mother, who before that time used to run a small osteria in Vicenza, had the idea of selling cicchetti, small portions of fried fish». In order to build new memories, you necessarily need to start from the ancient ones, which act as a necessary springboard to strengthen the present and jump into the future.
