Born and raised in Rome, Guido studied naval architecture and served in the Italian Navy before traveling to Los Angeles to work for his uncle’s granite and marble fabrication business. His talent for design grew out of the ten years he managed installations, working with clients to create dynamic, uniquely individual interiors. Drawn to the beautiful Monterey Peninsula, Guido went to work for a local interior remodel company where his skills and knowledge of design continued to evolve, and in 2010 he opened Monterey Kitchens. His secret of success? A fusion of great people who love what they do, quality products, modern technology and old world client-centered values. On a free day, you might find Guido out sailing on the Bay or in the kitchen re-creating his mother’s original Italian dishes using local ingredients. For Guido, work and play have always been two sides of the same coin.
