A noble , ancient and magic profession that comes from a great passion: my tailoring, in 1994, was founded on this ... I was just a boy when I opened my little shop a few steps from Piazza Hungary, in the heart of Parioli in Rome. These were the years in which the big names pulled out exclusive models that were very little special, a part the brand . These were the years when we were all dressed the same way. And I had a dream ... ...

create something unique, elegant and, above all, the same as nothing more ... I remember I began inspired by 50s models , which were of unparalleled elegance and class. The "big names", then, did not exist: it was only by the tailor who created a model just for you. Unfortunately, apart from a strong propensity for good taste and elegance, I did not have much familiarity with needle and thread ...

I had, however, a great desire to learn. I wanted to follow my grandmother's steps who had worked for the Fontana sisters in the 60s? Maybe ... I started out with great humility removing excess leads to shirts' seams . Then I learned to sew on buttons, embroidery with a "cross" and then with the "lily".

I continued beginning to draw models of the cuffs and, after a long time, I learned to cut back on the model. The emotion that I felt when I cut my first shirt is indescribable. ...

take hold of the long cloth, cold ...

spread it on the table and mark with chalk the various parts to be cut: the back, the breasts, the sleeves, shoulders and again ...

the price lists, the collar, cuffs ... Begin to cut it ...

following all the curves and as you see the stuff, once devoid of life, begins to take shape ... Necchi ...

sew with 2 needles, baste the collar by hand before the last seam and, once finished, cut the slots with a chisel and then embroider by hand with silk thread. In retrospect, I still get the shivers ... Since that day I have not stopped dreaming ... And every outfit, every shirt I sew in my little laboratory are made with the same passion and the same enthusiasm as that guy that has become big ... Massimiliano
