Yet Trigabolo, that restaurant, did wrote unforgettable pages in the history of contemporary Italian cuisine. Until 1994, when Igles moved about thirty kilometers away to Ostellato, in the middle of a fascinating wildlife oasis, and here he opened Locanda della Tamerice, to continue the path of a truly personal cuisine. His is a kind of modern and identity cuisine; it makes culture, thanks to the autumn appointment of Saperi e Sapori, also well in advance of the fashion of gastronomic conferences; he started dedicating himself to an intense and never interrupted popularizing and educational activity.
Another turning point at the end of 2010, when he moved to Pescia for the opening of Atman. He ran it until 2016, and then dedicated himself to Mercerie, in Rome.
And this is recent, today’s history. Just like the history of the encounter with Michele Massaro who, after making the knives ordered by Igles, wanted to honor him with a piece that is not only unique, but completely original: the knife with the deer horn handle. A choice dictated by Igles’s desire to have an object that could remind him of the comics he used to read as a child, in which Tex held a gun with an ivory handle. A detail, but a true finesse that Michele Massaro has reproduced with the deer horn, maintaining the special elegance that makes his work unique.
