What made you leave Italy and chose NYC?

I spend my time between Italy and New York where I found energy and inspiration.

Please share your best memory in the City.

Openings at Holly Solomon Gallery, clubbing at Jackie 60, dining at Indochine, drinking at N°8, black tie at The Met Ball, sleeping at East 48th street.

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

Rockefeller center is a symbol of the city, I love the Christmas tree they do every year so the picture done in front of the Jeff Koons installation is like a summer tree done by one of my favorite artist.

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US
