How did you first get into modeling?
I was having a difficult time, but then I followed in my mum’s footsteps and started modeling, in Rome, for Dolce & Gabbana. That’s how my career began.
If you weren’t a model, what would you be?
If I let my dad choose for me, I’d be a public employee. Anyhow, my mum supported and pushed me to follow my own dreams.
As there are lots of misconceptions about modeling, I’d like to ask you what the best (and worst) part of your job really is.
The worst part is being labelled as ‘good looking’, most of the people I meet only care about my appearance. On the other side, being handsome makes it easier with girls (Smiles, E.D.).
New or recycled?
New, I’d say.
What’s your spirit animal?
A black panther.
Car or bike?
I love comfort, so I’ll always choose a car.

Are you into reading?
Yes, I am. The last book I read is ‘Oliver Twist’ by Charles Dickens.
What do you have for breakfast?
I almost never have breakfast. When I do, I eat a croissant and drink some freshly squeezed juice.
Are you into thrift shopping?
No, I’m not.
Has your personal style changed since you started modeling?
Yes, of course. I used to go to the stadium a lot, so I was into more sporty looks. Now, I do care about what I wear.
What’s that one thing you had to wear for a job and wished you could bring home?
I once fell in love with a Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria outfit.
Do you have any style-related advice on how to stand out from the crowd?
Stay true to your personal style!
What’s in your suitcase?
The objects I couldn’t live without: my wallet, cigarettes, keys and headphones.

Do you have any ‘secret talents’?
I used to be a good football player.
If your life was a movie. Who would play you?
What’s your favourite pastime?
Listening to my favourite music.
What’s your favourite song?
‘Holyfield’ by Wiz Khalifa.
