Nico Acampora, founder of PizzAut, receives the Guido Carli Award – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay


Congratulations to Nico Acampora of PizzAut: on May 10th the Guido Carli Award for Social Commitment and Inclusion through work thanks to his magnificent project, the first and only pizzeria chain in Italy managed by autistic children. Starting from his personal experience as a parent, Acampora felt the need to create opportunities for people with autism like his son. To date, with two pizzerias open in Cassina De’ Pecchi and Monza, he is a true visionary entrepreneur.

«It’s not just a question of occupying the kids’ time: whoever decides to create a restaurant like ours must do something real workwith the right training period and the right level of pay. Too often there are companies that approach young people with disabilities to work, but then never hire. Hiring is fundamental because work has immense power: it gives dignity, gives a future and provides kids with tools that without work they would never know they had”, Nico Acampora told us.
