Fulvio Siccardi was born in Torino, Italy in 1969. In 1988, his road to culinary acclaim began when he started working in the kitchen of Michelin-starred restaurant Cascina Nuovo in Isola d’Asti.

Over the years Chef Siccardi honed his skills, working in several different venues in Italy and Switzerland, including a second three-year stay at Cascina Nuovo. In 2000 he became Chef del ristorante at Le Clivie in Piobessi d’Alba. Under his tutelage, the restaurant soon earned a Michelin star.

In August 2004, Chef Siccardi and his wife began a new venture when they opened their own restaurant, Ristorante Conti Roero, in Monticello d’Alba. Chef Siccardi has used the opportunity to concentrate on using the extraordinary food and wine products of Italy’s Roero region. While his food is both traditional and creative, always trying new approaches, it never forgets the gastronomical heritage of the Roero.

16th Street Theater is proud to partner with Autre Monde in presenting Three Takes: Two Gentlemen, original scenes inspired by Shakespeare’s Two Gentlemen of Verona. 16th Street Theater is Berwyn’s first and only professional Equity theater company.

Arlene Malinowski (Playwright-in-Residence ’08) is an actor/playwright who views her solo work as an extension of the social justice issues she has been committed to for the last 25 years. Her solo plays, What Does the Sun Sound Like, Til Deaf Do Us Part, Kicking the Habit, Or Forever Hold Your Peace have been produced and performed in venues nationwide. Her work has been honored with an LA Theatre Ovations nomination, an LA Weekly Award, a Garland Award and named one of best solo shows by Windy City.
