Our founders are two high-school friends from Tuscany,
Italy, who came to Seattle to share their passion for
authentic Italian pasta.
An engineer with the heart of a chef, or viceversa… Filippo grew up in a small town in Tuscany, Italy. He studied engineering at the University of Pisa, McMaster University, and Tsinghua University, where he obtained his PhD in 2016. His passion for cooking lead him through several culinary jobs in Italy and China through the years, including participating to a culinary talk show on Chinese tv in the role of Italian resident chef! Filippo is Due’s executive chef.
