Multiculturalism: My own Point of View. The Early Years.
I’m a true multi-cultural man. I was born in Argentina a long time ago now. My British Mom and my Italian-Argentine Dad had me and my brother traveling around the world, discovering amazing fantasy lands such as British Guyana and other Caribbean locations at a young age. After living only a couple of years in my native Argentina I have lived around the world, I’m Argentine by heart and British at the same time. If I had to choose I would breakfast in London, lunch at the Guyana and Dinner in Buenos Aires… May be that explains a lot of me…
The early Years,........

I also lived for many years in England. My teen years and a bit more I spent them at Mount St. Mary’s College in Spinkhill, a small town near Sheffield in the English Midlands. This Jesuit boarding school was my home; my classmates were my family and some of the finest memories date from those years… I also travelled in the Bahamas, and back in those days one of my friends’ had a small mansion by the sea side, where I spent several summers there, and once a group of 4 chaps, young, loud, and amazingly famous stayed there while touring and making a movie called, “Help” … their names were John, Paul, Ringo and George. Yes, The Beatles, so I also got to know them.
It was the 70s and England was bursting with enthusiasm, creativity and wittiness. I’m happy to know I witnessed those amazing times. I have no doubt about the fact that those early experiences in my life have shaped my mind, my soul and my interests, that today I see taking shape and body in the broad cultural project I develop passionately every day.
As Latin as I am, thanks to my Pop’s influence, I feel deeply passionate about art, style, culture… As a Brit as I have come to be, I feel English is my mother tongue, the borderless language that allows us individuals to transcend geographical borders and limits, the language of my thoughts and my chats… Thanks to my lifetime experiences I’ve become who I am, and along the way many of my projects, those that start in one’s mind and come to take shape along the road of life, began to be real and my input in this modern global world.
I’m a proud citizen of the world, who has chosen Buenos Aires has become home, and all of South America as my back yard.
