About the hosts
Martino Mangili, Les Urbainculteurs
After working in television and film production in Rome, Martino moved to Quebec City after a one-year backpacking trip to volunteer in Asia and South America. Convinced of the power of storytelling to educate people and create change, he works to connect his passion for audiovisual content to meaningful projects. It is his first year with Les Urbainculteurs, as a project manager in business development and as a horticulturist. His goal: to spread the message of Les Urbainculteurs by creating partnerships with actors ready to “be part of the solution”! In his pocket: A bachelor’s degree in business administration, a master’s degree in multimedia production management, a diploma in permaculture and… an Italian card game.
Bianca Thériault, Vins au féminin
While working in New Zealand, in the region of Otago, Bianca fell in love with the many local vineyards. She became interested in the world of cocktails, which she discovered when working in a typical Mexico bar. From Thailand to Mexico, each traditional dish she discovered contained a harmony of flavors that fascinated her ever more. Back in Quebec, still in search of new knowledge, she turned her attention to coffee. And it was by working in a specialized coffee shop and through many specialized trainings that she discovered the many facets of coffee. Bianca travelled towards Western Canada, where she experimented with grape harvesting. An epicurean and curious by nature, she discovered not only a whole new variety of grapes, but also a real passion for the wine estate. Since then, her passion for wines and Quebec beers has grown steadily.
