I know that I know. These famous words from the great Socrates found in Plato’s, epitomize my personality; a learned ignorance that leads me to the continuous quest for perfection and knowledge.
The “Hat” is my great passion; discovered throughout my cultural, professional and artistic voyage wich started after graduating in Literature, Philosophy, drama and Cinema from La Sapienza Università,Rome. I followed my degree with a fashion diploma from Accademia di Moda e Costume, and then went on to work as a costume assistant in the film and theatre industry. This training and experience has been fundamental to my professional development. Each one of my creations, born from the amalgamation of my intense studies, a passion for the past and a craving for the contemporary.
My ultimate goal is to create hats which are not just a simple accessory, but which perfectly “define” the essence of the wearer.
