"A Sartorialist is someone capable to direct the client in his choices, emphasising his tastes and his personality"
I’m from sunny and lush Liguria, I grew up in La Spezia, in a wonderful gulf between the sea and the Alps. When I finished my high school studies, I decided to move to Rome, to live and study. I graduated in Business and I started to work in Rome, but after some years I preferred to change everything in my life, so I moved back and I finished a Master Program in Event Management. After some months I started to organize some big events in Florence and Venice: it was in that period that I fell in love with Fashion and Design. I’m always travelling between Milan and Florence and now I’m also starting this wonderful experience, with the purpose to help Italians and foreigners in creating their own Style.
I'm brilliant, sensitive and empathetic.
