Describe yourself in one word. I’m the most curious person in the world! What’s the first thing you do in the morning? I try to get rid of all the stress, I just get dressed for the day and leave the house. Among your priorities, what’s the first between all? It’s hard to say, without thinking about it. Anyhow, to be honest, with or without considering it, I’ll just choose my twin brothers. What’s your source of inspiration? I look for inspiration in movies. Cinema has a great influence in my artistic research. In addition, surrealism has always played a fundamental role in my artistic choices.

Milan or Paris? Paris. How do you think fashion can contribute to the environment? There can be a lot of measures to take. We should’ve already acknowledged fashion has played a big role in global warming, but now it can try to be more eco-friendly and in charge of the improvement of the ecosystem. Are you scared that time will take away your beauty? Sure! I once tried to grow old with Faceapp, and I was really ugly. The worst thing is that I was the ugliest amongst my friends (Laughs, E.D.). Finish the sentence, “if I hadn’t become a model…”. I’d have been a photographer.

There’s a travel ticket on the table, for where would you wish it was? The U.S. – the Coen brothers’ way. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I’d like to work on a creative team, developing films or photo shoots. What’s the last movie you saw? ‘Fargo’. What’s your favourite song? ‘Blue Velvet’ by Bobby Vinton.
