My name is Matteo Aprile. I am 17 years old and I am from Turin, Italy. Currently I am an exchange student in a small town, Mount Vernon, in the southern Illinois. The experience I’m having here in the U.S. has definitely been great in numerous ways. I’ve learned so many new things, played so many new sports, and learned to see the world from a completely different perspective. I think it’s amazing how habits, lifestyles and routines can change so much from one country to another. Delizie Italiane is a project that was born with the idea of trying to pass on some of my Italian culture, and what better way than through food. With flavors, colors and scents of my land my intent is to make people live an authentic Italian experience.
