About Vinzenzo Spinosi
Vincenzo was awarded the Five-Star Diamond Award by The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, the authoritative organisation of the hospitality and travel industry, to honour his contribution to the hospitality sector.  In addition, the President of Italy granted Mr. Spinosi the title of "Grand Official of Italy".

Vincenzo named his newly developed pasta product "Spinosini", which means "junior Spinosi".  Spinosini is made of 35 per cent eggs and 65 per cent flour.  The flour is made from select hard wheat, and the eggs come from hens that have been fed with omega-3 and vitamin E, making Spinosini nutrient-rich.
