Born in Palermo on 31 July 1965, **Fabrizio Carrera** has been a professional journalist since 1993. He took his first steps in the editorial staff of the Giornale di Sicilia and today is deputy head of services of that same journal. In 2007 he became founder, editor, and managing editor of the online food and wine newspaper cronachedigusto.it. He has also created several national and international events dedicated to the world of food and wine. His flagship event, Taormina Gourmet, is a gathering of insiders, winelovers, journalists, masters of wine, importers, and other wine people held annually at the end of October that includes masterclasses, tasting tables, cooking demonstrations and press tours. Each year Taormina Gourmet welcomes over 150 wineries from all over Italy and the participation of some of the country’s top chefs. Through the Cronache di Gusto, Fabrizio publishes an annual Guide to the Wines of Etna – with text in Italian and English – that is sold in bookstores and through the online newspaper. He has also created the annual Wine Power List, a ranking of the 100 most powerful figures in Italian wine, which is published in a magazine circulated at the Vinitaly trade show and now also online. Fabrizio also organizes the Sud Top Wine competition in which a group of leading international experts evaluate the best wines from southern Italy each year.
