The experience will be complemented by a GUIDED TOUR OF THE MERCATO COPERTO by the staff, to discover the history, architecture, furnishings and enogastronomic thinking of the place.


Andrea Spada, after having started his career as sommelier, at the end of the '80s and in the '90s, he was first sommelier at Notai in Bologna (1 Michelin star) and at La Frasca in Castrocaro Terme (2 Michelin stars continuously kept for 26 years), restaurant with which he collaborated for 5 years.

1994 is the year of the award as First Sommelier of Italy, a title he will confirm the following year, and of the project of Trattoria di Strada Casale, an impromptu restaurant opened and managed together with chef Remo Camurani, with whom he will maintain a strong partnership throughout the years.

Gifted with great charisma and skills as an entertainer, from 2000 to 2003, he also embraced his passion for art and live entertainment by being involved in the management of Circolo degli Artisti (Faenza, RA), a cult venue that has seen artists such as Fabrizio Bosso, Stefano Bollani and Paolo Fresu on its stage. After a new experience as manager of the local Noè in Faenza, in 2013 he is the creator and organizer together with Carlo Catani (Book - Tempi di Recupero) of the Albana Day, an event where the best tasters of Italy and Europe are called in Romagna for a blind tasting of various labels of dry Albana, DOCG product of Romagna. In the same year he is consultant for Enoteca Regionale Emilia-Romagna and is sent as ambassador for the entity in Frankfurt, where he is in charge of the presentation and promotion of the oenological products of the Emilia-Romagna area. Since 2015 he is sommelier consultant for Casa Spadoni (and from 2019 also for the Mercato Coperto in Ravenna), with which he shares the eclectic vision of catering, the strong link with the territory, the attention in the care of the product.
