the essence of the Made in Modena excellence.
Sofia Malagoli, after graduating from high school, starts to study Civil Engineering at University of Bologna as her father wants.
Yet, after her first year of University, Sofia has the idea to turn Daniele’s hobby (her father) for DOP Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena into a business.
Sofia spent the first six years of life in her mother’s family hotel!
There, she used to spend lots time with many people who had different backgrounds and nationality. Even if her dad wanted her to be an engineer like him, she didn’t feel it in her heart!
Welcoming people and sharing time with them was a feeling too rooted in her blood to think to spent her life closed in a office through projects and bureaucracy! She couldn’t think to be all day focused on numbers and math formulas, without any relationship with international people and a different environment.
Thanks to her entrepreneurial spirit and the support of her mum, she started to promote the Acetaia and their DOP Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena not only among family and friends.
She started planning events at the Acetaia, welcoming local and international tourists and building a solid network and now, many experiences that authentically make tourists live as locals visiting some of the greatest companies of the area!
Sofia's latest creations are represented by Sofia Luxury Chocolates and Lucilla Anti-Aging Facial Cream, new ways to enjoy and discover the old tradition of her beloved DOP Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.
Last but not least, from the beginning Sofia tries to build up a strong network with local companies. She is convinced that to be successful you have to be part of a team and the stronger it is, the more it will accomplish!
