Sara,Alessandra and Marco
Domenica means Sunday, which is our favourite day of the week! Where we grew up Sundays are all about the food, we gather up around the table with family and friends to enjoy a handmade meal as we chat, chill and spend some quality time together.
Sara Angiuoni, just like her co-founders, grew up in Avellino, a small city in the south of Italy.
She moved to Brussels in 2011 to study international political economy at the university of Kent (bsis).
After obtaining her masters degree, she enrolled the phd programme to conduct a study on the exploitation of migrant labour in contemporary agriculture.
While studying the problems of the globalized food industry and how they reflect on the people who work at the bottom of the food production chain, she became obsessed with the idea that “another way must be possible”, so she started developing the project of an independent platform of producers that was made up by small companies, which shared the same ethos and provided equitable conditions for their workers.
That’s where the adventure began…!
Alessandra Mollica has a background in arts and graphic design.
While doing her studies she worked in her family’s bakery and became an experienced baker and maître pâtissier.
Her knowledge of arts led her to appreciate the value of artisanship and unique creations, which she transferred into her everyday work.
Alessandra’s philosophy is that “creativity, time and top-quality ingredients are the secret to every good recipe”.
Marco De Biase is an anthropologist and writer of two books on italian migration and mafia.
He moved to Belgium in 2011 to conduct a study on the role of mafia practices in the agro-alimentary sector.
Since very young, Marco has been actively engaged in the struggle against mafia and as a founder of domenica he makes sure that our partners comply with our strict ethical policy!
