The Story of Andrea and Piccolino

In 2012, a young Italian man named Andrea Fioriti made a brave step.

He got on a plane and left everything he knew, his family and friends and his hometown of Perugia in Italy, to venture to a country on the other side of the world where he knew no one. Australia.

Andrea was in search of a different life from the one he had known, determined to challenge himself and experience something unique.

Life in Australia was not easy for Andrea, but with determination and hard work as a chef, he gained Australian permanent residency in 2018.

One day whilst reflecting, Andrea said to himself, “I love Australia, I am happy here, but there is something vital missing…my family and friends”

Andrea asked himself how he could fix this problem, and so, Piccolino was born.
