What’s your favourite time of day? Sunrise and sunset, when the light changes. The rest of the day goes too fast!
Do you have a nickname? My son calls me Macgyver, after the American TV show about a secret agent who can win the day with just a paperclip and duct tape. It’s because I’m never happier than when I’m fixing things with my tools.
What’s your favourite meal? Traditional polenta. In Northern Italy we eat it with meat or cheese. A big sharing bowl in the centre of the table makes a party.
Catwalk or countryside? Both, but I love the biodynamic vegetable garden I’ve created. I spend hours there with my nephew.
Any particular holiday hot spot? Sardinia. We go there every year as a family – my mother, my children and their children.
Who do you most admire? Anyone with their own sense of style. And my friends. My partner says I don’t have a group of friends, I have a collection, because they’re all such different people.
