What does style mens to you?
I love pure lines, symmetry, solid colors and combinations of forms and shapes. I love life in its context of beauty - Mighty waterfalls, crystal clear waters, the warm glowing radiance of he snow caressed by the sun, the art deco of William F. Lamb and the Magnificent Liberty Style Villas in Cernobbio.
The style is visual semiotics; The ability to communicate contents of profound introspective significance with a simple gesture.Indeed…like knowing how to drink espresso gently holding the cup between thumb and forefinger or sliding down your nose a pair od reading glasses.
Someone or something that inspires your style?
L’Avvocato. In addition to its style, Gianni Agnelli is remembered for his unparalleled sense of humor.
His statements and the comments were often lapidary and unpredictable. He stunned interlocutors with irony and depth of judgment. Many of his characters have made history. Many of his public interventions are still relevant today.
The list goes on surely with Winston Churchill and Gerry McGovern. The latter I have personally met some time ago in London. He has been able to improve what was already iconic.
Your favorite city?
NYC and Cape Town.
What gives you most satisfaction?
I let l’avvocato answer for me:
“Ah, il piacere non me lo sono certo fatto mancare. Sa qual è il vero piacere? Un atto creativo. Un piacere senza creatività è di una noia mortale”
