Suit by Brunello Cucinelli

This is a double-breasted jacket with square checks. Cucinelli comes from Umbria, where I’m from, so I’m very proud of that. I’ve been wearing the brand for a long time. When you wear Cucinelli, you realise it is so expensive because there’s something particular about it. brunellocucinelli.com

Tie by Brunello Cucinelli

I rarely wear a tie but today I am wearing a cashmere one. Cashmere is the best solution for any occasion as it’s elegant but casual at the same time. As a gallerist you have to strike the right compromise between elegant and casual.

Shirt by Finamore

This is an Italian brand, the second-oldest shirt manufacturer in Naples. It appears the same as a regular shirt but it’s not – because the details are different, such as the buttons are mother of pearl. finamore.it

Pocket square by Marinella

I have a lot of pocket squares from Naples, the most important city for men’s tailoring. Any time I change the tie, I change the pocket square and I never have them the same colour, always different. I have been very meticulous about the way I look since I was a child. marinellanapoli.it

Sunglasses by Persol

Being Italian, it is essential to wear glasses as soon as the sun comes out. persol.com

Watch by Breitling

My favourite watch was a gift from my father 15 years ago. He passed away four years ago, so this piece is very important to me. breitling.com

Shoes by Church’s

These are from Il Conte, the most renowned boutique in my home town Terni. They’re elegant – I choose things for quality and comfort. ilconte.info
