Manger est une nécessité, mais manger intelligemment est un art François de La Rochefoucauld


Roberto Savio My name is Roberto Savio and I was born in Genoa, the Italian port where Christopher Columbus came from. I am from a family of chefs and gourmets and the scent of the Genoese pesto sauce, one of the most famous pasta dressing in the world, fills in my childhood from my very first days. And photography as well. While still a young boy, I decide to go around with my Kodak Instamatic, the first camera I ever had, to tell the stories of the world I can see, starting from sunny Genoa to foggy Turin, where I have to move to follow my father’s publishing business. I start working in advertising and corporate communication in 1983, I am the founder of my own agency and a creative director for several years. I become a reference point on the Italian market for graphic, video and multimedia production. And photography is always there, my true passion and part of my daily work. My love and experience in the food sector grows with the passing of t i m e .

In 2009, I decide to start up fcc. food & cooking consulting, a consulting firm specialized in designing, developing and implementing innovative concepts in the food and restaurant business. The following step, in 2010, is the creation of LINEAGOLOSA.tv, a video and photo production company through which I can work in the kitchens of the most famous Italian and international restaurants, to shoot the amazing dishes of first-class names such as Massimo Bottura, Davide Scabin, Andrea Berton and other Michelin starred chefs. My pictures are used for the communication campaigns of a large number of starred restaurants and hotels and are published on international top level food literature, like Cook_inc. by Vendenberg Edizioni. My pictures try to tell the restaurants’ positioning and the Chefs’ perspective on the food they serve. They are the result of a deep knowledge of the production process, of raw materials, of food transformation techniques as well as of dish composition and food design. My ambition is to use photography to tell the story of the farmers, of the products, of the environment, of the kitchens where meals are prepared and the places where people can enjoy them, with awareness and respect. I think that my passionate care for the entire cycle is clear in my final shot, where the image of the ultimate dish aims at being so vivid and inviting that you can really taste food before eating it.
