Living Etc - - HOMES / ETC -

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.
