A refined lunch reception in the enchanting Palazzo Marziale in Sorrento concluded the presentation event of the pamphlet by Raffaele Lauro “Palazzo Marziale of Sorrento”, under the careful direction of Paola Savarese Ravenna. The event was honoured by the presence of local authorities, institutional representatives, manages, culture personalities, journalists, bloggers and friends of the landlords, also from Rome and even Argentina.

Even more so, in a land that for centuries has made the art of courtliness its socio-economic speciality, our heritage of identity is also enriched by the relationship with local cultures and the close bond with the quality and variety of food they offer to their guests from around the world.” The sumptuous lunch created and prepared by the young chef, Andrea Napolitano, sealed this memorable Sorrentine feast in a really classy and at the same time understated way, precisely in the style of the house
