About your Hostess!
Ciao! I’m Marlo.
Marlo Di Crasto is the granddaughter of four Italian immigrants from Puglia, Sicily, Lazio and Campania. She was raised in her family's Italian food store in Upstate NY surrounded by Italian food and wine. Her grandmother, Josephine, was the local impresario running the family business, raising three children and promoting the opera. Luciano Pavarotti called her "Josephine, the Pizza Queen."
Marlo started singing and dancing on stage before she could even reach the height of the store's pizza oven. After a career on stage/TV/film, Marlo moved to Florence, Italy where she worked in a boutique wine shop just steps from the Duomo.
Today Marlo is a dual citizen with both US and Italian passports and is based in Rome where she curates unforgettable experiences for visitors focusing on food, wine, lifestyle & heritage.
