What do you do in your life (work and fun)?

I work as a model and actor. When I have a day off, I like to hang out in south beach with my friends. I love fitness and sport in general. I also have a passion for good and healthy food.

What made you leave Italy and chose NYC?

I am Italian and I love my country, but business wise to make my dream coming true Italy was not the right place. The most interesting productions and movies are made in America.

Please share your best memory in the City.

I have already collected a couple of good memories, but one was kinda strange and beautiful in the same second: when I went last year on Xmas day with my girlfriend to the beach and it was super hot. In Europe it is freezing cold on Christmas.

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

I choose this place because before I moved into my building, I was staying in this hotel and it reminds me always at my beginning in the US. I choose this outfit because it makes me feel comfortable.

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US

I was quite interested because this is a different project and something special for me, because I am Italian. ITALIANY gives us a chance to explain and show what we are doing here. I also was very excited to work with Alexo Wandael.

How would you describe being an ambassador of the italian style/culture abroad?

For me it has already value to be Italian, the keeper of traditions, the son of a country rich in history, culture and art. We are known for this and for our style, our manners and it is important that all this is not forgotten, or hidden. I believe that being Italian can help us in some cases, in the same way many foreigners make a fortune in Italy, remaining connected with their homeland, and exciting my curiosity with their language and traditions.
