Your town. Three words to describe it.
Reggio Calabria: lovely chaos

Three words to describe your projects
Not fashionable.

A colour.

A taste.

Antique, modern or contemporary?

The most precious item you own?
A brush shaped like a Renaissance figurine.

Where is design going?
It's just starting to live its era.

Where are you going?
Homewards, always…

Three words to describe Italy.
Tangled, dense, one-in-a-million.

Calabria ;)

Never without?
The sea.

Un motto.
