What does style means to you?
We live in an era where everything is ephemeral. Even the 'style' can easily be confused with the passing fashions. Style is a way of being. Gandhi had style, Churchill had style, Albert Einstein had style, miss Thatcher, miss Onassis, miss Callas had style, Humphry Bogart, Cary Grant had style, each of them had a strong personal taste that distinguished them in the mass. They had a natural style and said by them, not imposed. Today the times are different and i do not recognize a particular style icon, but i know many people, dear to me, who have much style. Since i was a child i have always looked at aesthetics as a divine gift and i always carefully observed the style as a means of communication, because fashion passes but style remains!
Someone or something that inspires your style?
Various characters are a source of inspiration for their 'way of being' that was transmitted in the way they dressed. I can’t mention only one, but various, like Gabriele d'Annunzio, Serge Gainsbourg, the duke of Windsor, Oscar Wilde or the Bel-Ami of Guy de Maupassant.
Your favorite city?
What gives you most satisfaction?
There are so many little feats and little things of everyday life that gratify me, above all intellectuals and rarely material.
