Liguria Wine Magazine suggests, as a pattern for some interviews, an interpretation of the “Proust questionnaire”, the famous list of questions to which a hopeful young man, the one would have gone down into history for his madeleine – ad not just fort that – answered for a joke.
Daniele Montebello, born in 1986, is the mayor of Castelnuovo Magra (SP), one of the most beautiful village in Italy, according to Italian Touring Club. For some time he is the President of the Regional Winery of Liguria, which is based in the same city. We asked him to take part in our reinterpretation of Proust questionnaire.
