Who is

Mattia Carmine Perciballi

It’s been a long time since the 17th of April 1986 I stepped for the first time behind a bar counter. The emotion was strong and the fear of not knowing what to do was a lot. That day I was about to become an entrepreneur, but nothing had made me think that I would like it that much that I would want to tap into the well of knowledge so often.

First Shots

The years passed and my thirst for knowledge kept increasing. I used to leave my activity every now and then to go work abroad: my clientele expanded internationally and while my professional skills in cocktail preparation and client entertainment were strong, my language knowledge was my weak point.

So I decided to go to London, then Paris, New York, San Diego, Barcellona, Caracas, Zacatecas, Sharm el Sheikh, Djerba: lifestyle, culture and different idioms were part of a great professional growth, an experience baggage and emotions that was part of the growth of the man and bartender named Mattia. Now I can speak fluently four languages.

Trend Importer

Between seasons I went back to my activity in Italy, the place I opened in ‘86 and the commitments had with the Italian Bartender Association where I held several positions, from vice trustee to national counsellor and teacher for 18 years.

The experience acquired teaching has given me the possibility in 2009 to found a Laboratory/Academy specifically created to train bartenders, giving a new impulse for a rebirth of Classic & Vintage Mixology in Rome and Italy.

Today

I am National Counsellor and member of Didactic Commission of the A.B.I Professional (Associazione Barmen Italiana); I am a critic and judge in national and international cocktail competitions and teacher in various academies that teach courses and masters in Mixology and Barchef techniques in Italy and abroad.
