Open minded with a sense of heritage, his passion runs high for the craftsmanship of Sardinia. Among many artisan skills they boast, Sardinians also pride in strong weaving and embroidery culture where the family looms are still handed down and cared for. It was the earliest form of communication (story telling) and means of empowering women in rural Sardinia giving them economic power and a chance of making their voice heard. Antonio developed an excellent understanding of Sardinian textiles and still embraces the same craftsmanship in his works. The influences can be seen in every corner of his masterpieces and in his artisanal Laboratorio collection where everything is sewn and embroidered by hand in his house-laboratory team in Alghero with a modern twist.
He travels to his HQ in Milan and still insists living in Alghero where he was born and true inspiration always originated from with his beloved wife and muse of his life Patrizia who is a chief executive officer of the brand, two sons Efisio and Leonardo and extended family who also take active parts in his creative process.
