Lorenzo Piccione from Pianogrillo is a Sicilian olive oil producer. Like many before him, Piccione has observed the growth in interest in quality oil, but he alone noticed that there was no utensil that allowed knowledgeable tasting of this wonderful substance. And so he designed a completely new type of object for the Encyclopedia Alessi: the personal oil taster.
Lorenzo Piccione di Pianogrillo, born in Legnano but originating from a historic Sicilian family that moved to the north, took courses at the Istituto Europeo di Design, Milan and at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, also in Milan. He has maintained contacts with the land of his origins, transforming family properties into a modern and prestigious olive-oil agricultural enterprise. He has thus developed great experience in the production of extra virgin olive oil over the course of the years, reflecting his great passion for agriculture and the production of quality olives. He has two children; he is a photographer and a keen pianist.
