Gambero Rosso is the world’s authority on Italian food, wine and travel. Established in 1986 it is acknowledged throughout Italy (and by those in the know internationally) as THE provider of the most up to date, impartial and expert insights into ‘saper vivere’, the Italian way of life.

Gambero Rosso started life as a traditional content company publishing magazines, guides, wine, cookery and travel books. Expansion in recent years has included the opening of Città del gusto in Rome and Naples (Cities of Taste) dedicated to

exploring the vast universe of Italian food and wine, professional and amateur cooking schools, a 24 /7 TV channel with studios and full production facilities and a number of online interests.

We also put together specialist programmes for governments and companies of all types. At the moment for example, we have the three most important chefs from The National People's Congress of the People's Republic of China enrolled in a

specialist course at the Città del gusto in Rome studying the history, ingredients, traditions and art of Italian cooking with workshops and placements in leading restaurants in the capital.
