Atlanta Tech Park-Based Start-Up MAGISNAT Researches the Mediterranean Diet and Eating Disorders




Italian company MAGI’S Lab held a launch event for its innovative American start-up MAGISNAT,at Atlanta Tech Park on June 23, 2022.

This partnership will provide crucial support for MAGISNAT to reach its goals, such as sponsorship opportunities, research and development and exploring the importance of the Mediterranean diet for health.

Atlanta Tech Park was chosen for its track record of successfully developing research projects and laying the foundation for them to grow and thrive in the U.S. market.

This prominent location in the Southeast will enable MAGISNAT to accelerate scientifically and corporately.

The event was broadcast live on the official YouTube channel of the Italian House of Deputies and the Large Café in Atlanta Tech Park. MAGISNAT’s presentation was also hosted in the Press Room of the Italian Chamber of Deputies in Rome.

It was the first time that such an important institutional body decided to host an event of scientific importance on the Mediterranean diet and natural molecules.

For more information, download the event’s brochure here.

This event was attended by leading American and Italian professors and researchers, who specialize in the study of certain pathologies and natural molecules.

The American researchers who participated in the conference, include:

  • Professor Stephen T. Connelly, University of California, who is known for his studies on natural molecules and Alzheimer’s disease;
  • Professor Jonh Paul SanGiovanni, BIO5 Institute and School of Nutritional Sciences and Wellness at the University of Arizona, who is studying nutrient constituents of the Mediterranean diet that are essential in dealing with conditions relating to retinal degeneration;
  • Professor Peng Jin, Emory University of Atlanta, who focuses on the importance of natural molecules in the treatment of certain diseases; and
  • Professor Karen L. Herbst, Department of Medicine at the University of Arizona, who is devoting herself to the study of lipoedema, and how the Mediterranean diet is among the possible treatments for this condition.

The Italian researchers who participated in the event, include:

  • Professor Benedetto Falsini, Institute of Ophthalmology at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Rome, who is working on nutrition in hereditary retinal degeneration;
  • Professor Amerigo Iaconelli, Department of Internal Medicine at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Rome, who is an expert on the Mediterranean diet and its importance for people’s well-being;
  • Professor Sandro Michelini, San Giovanni Battista Hospital, Rome, whose research discovered the first lipedema gene;
  • , University Polyclinic Foundation “A. Gemelli,”Medical Genetics, Rome, who is working on the study of fragile X syndrome.

Each professor expertly shared their research on the usage of natural molecules for preventive purposes regarding diseases of genetic origin and eating disorders such as anorexia, obesity, lymphedema and lipoedema.

There are still many more things that MAGISNAT has set out to do, but this event was the first step toward important collaborations between American and Italian research.

Eraldo and Maria Margherita, Donors of Non-Profit Biomedical Research Center, Honored



July 8, 2023, marked a celebration for the couple Eraldo and Maria Margherita, who respectively reached the ages of 80 and 78. This special event was organized to pay tribute to the founders of the Biomedical Research Center in San Felice del Benaco. They inherited and invested in the property with the aim of transforming it into a non-profit Foundation for Research.

In the past, biomedical research in Italy was primarily entrusted to public institutions. However, in recent decades, non-profit organizations have played an increasingly important role in biomedical research, particularly regarding genetic and rare diseases.

Non-profit laboratories provide job opportunities for recent graduates who often struggle to find employment. Additionally, they can represent an opportunity for Italian researchers who wish to return to their country after a period abroad.

In this context, the MAGI group stands out. After more than 17 years since its foundation, the organization continues to grow steadily in terms of revenue, research activities and number of employees. The Research Center in San Felice del Benaco, founded by Eraldo and Maria Margherita, who host the MAGI group at this location, was the focal point of this celebration where researchers paid tribute to them.

During the event, distinguished musicians were present, including the Piano Maestro Corrado Ruzza, soprano Martina Bortolotti and baritone Davide Piva. They delighted the guests with their marvelous performances.

San Felice del Benaco and the entire Lake Garda region have always been places of great inspiration for art and music. Numerous renowned artists and historical figures have praised the beauty of this region, as evidenced by important citations.

From this research center in San Felice del Benaco, the heart of Italian culture, cuisine and the Mediterranean diet, the spin-off MAGISNAT was born, with headquarters in Peachtree Corners, Georgia in the U.S. The spin-off aims to bring not only research but also culture and the Mediterranean diet to the United States, as well as harnessing the benefits of omics sciences to personalize dietary integration. Additionally, it seeks to promote opera and classical music.

The celebration of the 80th birthday of Eraldo and Maria Margherita represented a special moment to honor their contributions to the Research Center in San Felice del Benaco. This event also highlighted the crucial role of non-profit organizations in biomedical research in Italy and emphasized the beauty and inspiration that Lake Garda has evoked over the centuries.

The establishment of the MAGISNAT spin-off in the United States represents an important step forward in promoting Italian culture and scientific research in the fields of nutrition and cuisine beyond national borders. Its Italian headquarters can serve as a resource, providing residential courses for individuals from the U.S. who wish to delve into topics such as nutrition and genomics, the Mediterranean diet and Italian opera and concert music.
