meet Cristina & Mario!

our point of view is different

for us, Creattivando means passion
a passion we want to transfers to our guests

our format adapts itself to the requests of each experience
so that every meeting is unique and unforgettable

the attention todetails, the selection of ingredients are key elements of experiential action

nothing is leftout to always give an emotion destined to remain in mind


our perspective

in 2013 we started the adventure of Creattivado animated by firm conviction that tourism and brand Genova (and Liguria) would have been successful.

in these years we have pursued our thought creating a flexible format, based on food experience but also rich in history and local culture without forget the attention to taste, quality and emotional mood.

over 1,000 unique visitors confirm our model is on-target

on the net with touristic operators we propose new way to combine food with local tour with a smile!

  • Cristina and Mario are so much fun!! This was the highlight of my trip to Italy!! Not only did they teach us how to make amazing pesto, they told us so much about the history of Genova. Loved this class and highly recommend! Loved it!!!

Graduated in modern letters, artisan of macramĂ©, typical lace with Ligurian knots and a thousand passions to cultivate. One above all Genoa and Liguria, a territory to be discovered among the “caruggi” of the old city and riviere but especially around the table.



… from technology to mortar.
A passion made of territorial research and attention to the customer.
One goal among all: to make Genoa and Liguria known through food using mortar and pestle but also keyboard and mouse.

we work with many partners


pesto sauce for us
isn’t only a food experience…


pesto today is the symbol of Genovese culture, basil, pine nuts… mortar and “pestello” but not only

pesto sauce is a passion, an opportunity to live in a special place, a corner of the world among sea, sky and rocks

a unique area in the world and we are proud to live here and pleased to welcome you here with us
