Uncle Mimmo, producer of Genuine Fulvi® Pecorino Romano, Cacio de Roma®, Rustico®, Sfizio, and Spizzico, died suddenly on Friday. He will be sorely missed as he was the essence of these cheeses and the passion that lies in both Pierluigi’s and Michele’s hearts.
In memoria di Zio Meco:
Sarai sempre nel mio cuore. Grazie infinite per essermi stato sempre vicino e per avermi insegnato cosi tanto.Senza te, i tuoi sacrifici e la tua grande passione per i formaggi non avremmo fatto nessuna strada.
You will always be in my heart. Thank you infinitely for always being there and for having taught me so many things. Without you, your sacrifices, and your huge passion for cheese we never would have gone anywhere. -Pierluigi
I met Uncle Mimmo in 1993. He was the embodiment of Sini Fulvi as he was the cheesemaker – he was Fulvi®, Sini® – he’s what I pitched and “preached” for the last 18 years. He was the rock and the foundation of all we promoted. I share the pain and sadness that is in Pierluigi’s heart. Ciao Zio. Rest peacefully. -Michele
