my SELF "Mario"

I was lucky enough to be born in Italy, where beauty and art are everywhere. Growing up in a family that guarded the ancient art of Neapolitan tailoring since the late 1800s, I was encouraged to travel and compare myself with the different cultures of the world. The many Christmases spent in Paris, the summer holidays between the south of France and the United States of America, but above all the privilege of being able to attend a surprising country with Japan have stimulated my creativity and opened my mind allowing me to wander entrepreneurially not only in fashion but also in sectors such as marketing and art. The latter has always been a passion of mine, it has often merged with the family business (fashion). Through my scarves, even my paintings, they traveled to be exhibited towards Japan (Tokyo), Northern Europe (Brussels) and the U.S.A. (Miami), yet, I had always refused to sell them because I was unable to give them up.
This was before the 2020 pandemic, when unable to travel I had more time for myself in a new, silent and slowed down world. Spending my days designing new fabrics and models of jackets and shirts, I also began to experiment with new techniques of painting on canvas, allowing me to work on new subjects and new techniques of applying color. These novelties for my habits made me consider sharing my Spartan pictorial art with the rest of the world, as I have always done for my fashion creations. Thus was born the MARio project where lifestyle, luxury, fashion, art and collecting are presented all together in a single BOX.
