Antonino Giambrone was born in Canada from a family of Italian origin and lives in the centre of Toronto. His maternal grandfather lived in Toronto and when Antonino was young, he spent his days with him to learn how to grow the garden. His paternal grandfather on the other hand, lived in Borgetto, Sicily. Antonino used to visit him every summer to help him take care of the plants. Antonino still believes in the importance of the values of the garden so he is often helped by his children.
