Diary of a creative dreamer

Tales and dreams by a creator of luxuries


My Reverie Garden Blog is a diary collating the notes of my never-ending search to create experiences that provoke emotions and stimulate thought and imagination about dreams, luxury and creativity. A real luxury, dreams have been a key word in my entire life, ever since I was a child and, in my hometown Venice, my mum would enhance my games with her imagination and she taught me how to use creativity to make my dreams come true.

It was Carnival time in Venice, and I would wear the costumes and the masks that she would make for me. My childhood probably shaped my personal and professional destiny: in the creation of the Ballo del Doge, considered the most famous masked ball in the world from 1994, in my design creations using hand-printed velvets and in the planning and designing of luxury events, my dreams keep guiding and inspiring me.

Today I still ask myself if my dreams were feeding my creativity or if it was the other way around.

About me

Running through my veins, you will find both German blood, from my father, and Venetian blood, from my mother. From them I inherited a romantic soul, that of a dreamer, a restless soul, at times, searching for authentic beauty to be worn and to be lived. From Venice I took my spirit of initiative and this city is my source of inspiration: I am a luxury artisan.
