You have been the face of a brand for several seasons that expresses the concept of Italianness more than any other. As a foreigner, are you happy to interpret Italy?I am very proud! I have been collaborating with Dolce & Gabbana for several years, in which I learned to know Italy and to know how to interpret it, always discovering enchanting places like Capri.
How do you consider your experience in Capri and how has your life changed after you appeared in the height of your statuary beauty, wearing the “famous” white bathing suit?Since the campaign came out, I was immediately stormed by many fans: they recognize me on the street, they ask me for autographs, they want to be photographed with me. All this made me very famous and I thank Stefano and Domenico for giving me this great opportunity.
How would you describe the style of this brand?For me it is a brand I look forward to in the country where it was born. It has a very strong identity and has managed to stand out over the years. It is now considered an icon and part of the history of contemporary fashion.
Working in fashion you are in contact with different brands. Different tastes and styles are part of the life of each model. How would you describe your most spontaneous looks?I am spontaneously a guy who loves classic clothing, not only in the field of elegant looks. Even when I go to the gym with jogging in jersey and t-shirt or during a Sunday brunch in jeans and shirt, I always prefer the simplicity and classicism of these categories. I don't like overly constructed or embroidered garments that I find are perfect for editorial.
What do you think are the best characteristics of the “Light Blue” perfume?It is a very fresh and masculine fragrance close to the Mediterranean, its natural territory. Its presence is as intense as the sea breeze.
A secret to keeping yourself so beautiful and young?Love, exercise, healthy eating.
