Pietro Collina and Veronica Di Pietrantonio have announced The Love of Hospitality Tour, a four-stop bar that will see the pair host masterclasses and events at some of Latin America’s most celebrated bars.
The announcement comes after Collina confirmed on 31 March that he would be leaving his role of director of bars at NoMad London after ten years of service.
“After this difficult couple of years, where no one could travel and celebrate with friends, the industry suffered not only financially but also a great loss of talent,” said Collina.
“We want to take this opportunity to better understand the direction the bar industry is going globally and not only get inspired ourselves but discuss what motivates the next generation of hospitality workers to stay committed in this profession.”
The Love of Hospitality Tour, sponsored by Michter’s and Siete Misterios, will begin in Mexico with an industry masterclass at Hanky Panky in Mexico City, then to Costa Rica and the 50 Best Discovery bar Selvatica in San José.
The third stop will be Colombia, and to Alquimico in Cartagena before the final event at Carnaval in Lima.
“We also want to discover more of Latin American culture,” added Di Pietrantonio.
“What makes their hospitality so special, and how they create community. I consider them some of the best hosts in the world, always showing genuine passion in everything they do. Inspiration is not something that can be found sitting on the couch waiting, so instead, we decided to venture across the world and be more deliberate in our search for what makes world-class hospitality.”
Di Pietrantonio and Collina will also be focussing on their newly co-founded consulting agency, Fine Drinks Co., created in partnership.
