My American Dream
Americans frequently come into my Italian shops and ask, "How can we get your products in the United States?"  My answer is not to export our products, but to produce our Italian cured meats in the US with the true perfume and taste of this family traditional story. 
That’s how the dream began and how the Terra di Siena USA Project started.

So, why in Virginia?  Virginia, a birthplace of American culture, is similar to Tuscany in several ways. Viginians, like Tuscans, appreciate quality, natural products, and the respect for tradition.  Both regions are similar in microclimates and landscape to create organically grown products, which is very important for our health.   

In the late 19th Century, Terra di Siena’s great-grandfather, Lorenzo Nidiaci, was well known all
across central Italy for being the personal butcher of the Royal Family, as popular stories passed down at that time. Today, the great-grandson, Filippo Gambassi, is the ambassador of this family tradition to the United States. Filippo has developed a production warehouse in Virginia that complies with USDA sanitary standards, but follows the original meat making process based only on simple organic ingredients and slow natural aging.
