About Luciano Faia
Nato a Torino, ma legato da sempre a Dogliani. Ex cantiniere e appassionato, oltre che di vino, di tutto ciò che è espressione della cultura di Langa, che sia storia, cibo o natura. Mi piace far conoscere ad altri questa terra meravigliosa per guardarla con occhi sempre diversi.
Attualmente mi occupo di teatro a Torino con la compagnia Onda Larsen.
