About Chef Luigi

Growing up on a working farm in Basilicata, Italy, Luigi Diotaiuti developed an intimate relationship with the local terrain and the food it produces. His family's livelihood revolved around the crops and livestock that they raised. Today, Luigi is proud to display his love for the land and all it brings to the table with intense passion and enthusiasm.

Basilicata

Luigi's home region of Basilicata, Italy, is the only region in the country with two official names—it also goes by its ancient name Lucania—Basilicata is said to be the home of the first human settlements in Italy. In order to give back to the area which inspires him the most, Luigi has formed a non-profit entitled Basilicata: A Way of Living through which he is proud to present the Transumanza and Pasta Lab.
