Born and raised in the Aurelio neighborhood of Rome, Mario Farulla always had a passion for traveling and a drive to pursue a career in luxury hospitality. This led him to work in bars of prestigious international hotels in cities like London, Antwerp, Tel Aviv, Dubai, Tbilisi and Samarkand, starting at the young age of 19.

Mario’s experiences at 5-star hotels such as Four Seasons, Marriott, and Galvin Brothers have shaped him as a person and given him a broader perspective on different cultures. 

Despite all his travels, Mario couldn’t shake his homesickness and decided to return to Italy. In 2017, he began working as a bar manager at Baccano, a restaurant and bar near the Trevi Fountain in Rome. Under his management, the restaurant gained international recognition and won several awards, including a 70th place ranking in the 50 best bars in the world in 2019. During his three-year tenure, Mario also hosted renowned bartenders from around the world.

Mario’s dedication has given him recognition on a global scale. He has participated in international events like the Moscow Bar Show, Athens Bar Show, Bar Convent Berlin, London Cocktail Week, and Singapore Cocktail Festival. He has also conducted masterclasses and guest bartended at clubs in cities such as Sao Paulo, Moscow, Frankfurt, Barcelona, and Singapore. In 2019, Farulla was ranked 80th in the prestigious Drinks International Bar 100 ranking and rose to 55th the following year.

During the COVID-19 lockdown, Mario used his time to reflect and connect with his audience. He created a series of «Late Late Show» date nights on Instagram, where he interviewed legends of mixology such as Dario Comini, Hamish Smith, Tony Parlapiano, Simone Bodini, and Bruno Vanzan.

Now, Mario Farulla has opened his club «DIRTY» in Milan at the end of January 2023. With his wealth of international experience and expertise, Mario is set to bring a new level of luxury and sophistication to the city’s nightlife scene.
