He started his career in Italy working for independent restaurants until he had the opportunity to open a restaurant at Four Seasons in Tokyo in 1992. From there he left to pursue other opportunities and hone his Asian cooking skills before returning to the company.

In 2004, Giancarlo returned to Four Seasons the company's former hotel in Tokyo at Chinzan-So as Executive Sous Chef. A few years later he was the part of the opening team for the first Four Seasons in India at Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai as Executive Chef.

 In 2010, he started to explore the Middle East and assumed the role of Executive Chef at Four Seasons Hotel Doha and since 2015 has been in Abu Dhabi, where he helped to open the Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi.

“It is my honour to join Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou,” said Giancarlo. “Guangzhou is famous for its cuisine, and I always believe that the world may be changing but good food is not. I wish that I can bring local gourmets a delightful dining experience.”
