Vista Alegre adds to Chef’s Collection with Nello Cassese’s Florentino

The Chef’s Collection from Vista Alegre has been bolstered by a new piece, created with acclaimed chef Nello Cassese.

Florentino is an homage to the chef’s home country of Italy and its world-renowned gastronomic culture. In particular, the piece is a nod to the ancient Renaissance art schools of Florence and Venice.

Michelin starred chef Nello Cassese was born in Naples, Italy and his interest in cooking began at an early age when his grandmother cooked ragù and seafood for the family. A former Best Young Chef in Tuscany – which he won at just age 20 – Nello learned his trade working with famous British chef Gordon Ramsey.

Since 2016 he has been in charge of Cipriani, the restaurant at the iconic Belmont Copacabana Palace hotel in Rio de Janeiro, where he has won several awards including a Michelin star.
