For A conversation with, the column dedicated to our brand customers, we’re introducing to you our interview with Gerardo Cavaliere, a Foggia-born thirty-one-year-old man living and working in Milan. He made a living out of his passion for style and startups.
On an average day, I wake up early and have breakfast at home, either a rusk and jam or cereals and rice milk. Then, I have a shower and start replying to emails. I try planning my meetings in the morning, so I can do some exercise during lunch time.
In the afternoon, I get back to the office, which, to me, is a desk in a room a share with my colleagues. For dinner, I go home to cook, and then I usually play soccer with friends or enjoy a beer with good company.
As a real Pugliese (Puglia-native), I love cooking meatballs. My grandma taught me the classic recipe with tomato sauce.
Sober, refined, and elegant. For many, it’ll sound too basic and flat but it’s the key to Italian style. For instance: a striped shirt under a patterned suit just doesn’t work very well. You can’t wear too many things together. Plus, ‘Lifestyle Italiano’ means feeling right with your own outfit.
The Family Man starring Nicolas Cage. I like this double idea about how men should be accomplished in their life. From driving a Ferrari to a normal life. I probably saw it 50 times. It tells the story about how, really, every man needs both.
Without a doubt, at Eduardo De Simone’s, simply the master. I happened to personally meet him this year, and he’s the artisan who made the suit I wear today. To understand his greatness, he made me try it five times during different weeks. It has to fit just right.
Honestly, I’m not a shopaholic type of person. I don’t like shopping every week or something. But I’d take you to The Store at Via Solferino. You’ll find everything you need in there.
To Sicily and, more precisely, to Catania and Palermo. Around these cities, there are many magical places for culture and beach life. I keep going there. Have you ever been to Scopello? It’s worth the trip.
I take my Triumph, and I drive to one of the many spots around Milan. This is the (first) bike of my dreams; I wanted it for years. Speaking of dreams, I wouldn’t mind driving a last generation Porsche Targa.
Depending to the season, I like wearing them with a pair of jeans and a pullover, or matching a suit since I love its contrast with classic style. When you drive a motorbike, this works very much.
