People often say Italians are crazy.
We are not here to deny that!
If you put together hopelessly crazy romantics and the determination to take over the world one focaccia at a time, you will get a sense of what Donna Fugassa is about.
Having reached our 30’s, we were unhappy with our professional life and asked ourselves “When were we the happiest?”
The answer was an immediate “When we ate focaccia on the beach in Liguria!”.
Bringing an Italian beach to London proved to be quite unpractical, so we decided focaccia was the best thing to bring with us to The Big Smoke.
Donna Fugassa is not just about food though. It is our mission to engage with the local and Italian communities here in London. We are currently sponsoring Hackney Council’s youth activities as well as charity and cultural related events. As part of the cultural network we also use the space to exhibit and sell artwork by local and Italian artists as part of our desire to grow within the community and establish ourselves as a place of creativity and local engagement.
