About us

Mauro Silvia Dorigo

We are a brother and sister duo, Silvia and Mauro Dorigo, with a shared passion for the finer things in life.

For over 15 years before returning to Milan, Silvia lived and worked in Ireland, the United States and London, where she worked in events, even bringing Italian excellences to London at a show called La Dolce Vita; Mauro followed her on her journeys, however in the meantime, he had built strong roots and important ties in the Food and Beverage world in Milan.

Alessandra Pepe has joined us over a year ago; she is a nomad in spirit who, after spending several years in Asia, some of which managing an international cooking school in Taipei, has decided to make home in Milan and support the vision of Farm65 as a culinary hub.

In 2010, we founded Be.It events, an agency that organizes big festivals centered on people’s passions, our most famous ones are Taste of Milan and Taste of Rome; in 2015, we founded Farm65.

We have imagined Farm65 as the space of our dreams: spacious and welcoming, with an innovative offering encompassing the most various experiences based on synergies between different chefs, producers, communicators and consumers, people in the business. We have been loving and nurturing Farm65 as our baby and we are now ready to let it fly!

You can find us in the most beautiful part of the Naviglio Pavese in Milan, with easy access to the countryside that extends immediately after the city. Our lovely building was once part of paper mill from the early 1900s, it was their canteen. Now it is undoubtedly the most beautiful cooking place in Milan.

Since 2020, we have been founding members of the committee which brings together other cool restaurants and bars overlooking the same section of Naviglio Pavese (the canal). Our objective is to work as a team, promoting each other's differences and offerings and creating events or activities together in a view to attract ever more visitors to the area and our respective businesses.

This is us. If you would like to have a chat with us and/or offer us some great idea, you are always welcomed to come and visit or write to us, We will be super happy to welcome you in Farm65!

We look forward to welcoming you here!
