Genesis, Join the next expedition!

Riccardo Gaspari, the chef and owner of the Michelin starred restaurant San Brite, as well as El Brite de Larieto, along with his wife Ludovica, established Genesis, which is more than just an event—it's a project. 

Riccardo and Ludovica believe in the importance of innovation and sharing in their work, drawing inspiration from their experiences watching colleagues cook in their kitchen and discovering new techniques and flavors. Genesis aims to go beyond being a mere event by becoming a project focused on regenerative and sustainable cooking practices. 

For Riccardo, Genesis represents his desire to leave behind a meaningful legacy. He envisions sustainability not just as an action, but as a feeling deeply ingrained in their collective culture of cooking. 

Ludovica Rubbini, the founder of Genesis, sees the project as a reflection of her identity and aspirations, striving to integrate her vision of food and sustainability into every aspect of the endeavor. Through Genesis, they aim to foster a sense of responsibility towards humanity, nature, and the future.



With Genesis they will give life to four exclusive events, each linked to one of the four elements that make up Nature: Fire - Water - Earth - Air.

These events will accompany the succession of the seasons, following their rhythms, colors, and scents;

It will be a series of events and workshops whose structure and boundaries will be guided by the changing seasons and the natural laws that govern us.

Through this passage of time, they anticipate reaching the ultimate event: GENESIS, which will serve as both the beginning and end of a profoundly rejuvenating year.
