When fashion meets psychology

Last sunday afternoon, while shopping in Bellagio I entered the shop of Arte & Moda with my friends. The owner Pierangelo Masciardi welcomed us with a shiny smile. We started talking about fashion, art, archeology and our origins…Pierangelo Masciadri is an artist from Como, who graduated at the “Academia delle Belle arti di Brera”  and was appointed Honorary Inspector of Lombardy by the Ministry of Culture and Environement. His great interest in the themes within architecture, sculpture and painting made him want to spread his knowledge to a wider public.
He is passionate, he is an artist! I advice you to visit his shops in Bellagio and/or Venice. The choice of two different places for his shops to propose his creations follows a precise cultural logic: a village “Bellagio“, not only a “gem” of lake Como, famous all over the world, but also a city, “Venice“, absolute masterpiece of art and beauty.
His shop is equal to a musem to me, because it contains art! In the following article you will find several photos of my favourite items especially bags and clutchs: made basically with silk and leather (want them all), of course made in Italy, handmade. Designed by Pierangelo Masciardi.
The source of the text is the brochure of the Arte & Moda available also on the official website
I would be happy to know that I succeed in communicating you my emotions through the lens of my camera


Pierangelo believes that fashion can be a vehicule to transmit cultural messages in a more spontaneous way. Wearing an article of clothing or an outfit inspired by the world of art is not just an outward appearance.

Iin 1992 Pierangelo Masciadri achieves fame as stylist after having drwan the tie that Bill Clinton wore when he was elected the first time president of the USA. From the moment  Masciadri has got important recognitions from the most powerful and famous men of the world.

Masciadri has also designed and produced the tie that the president of the USA George W. Bush wore in the 2004 electoral compaign, during the first TV debate against Kerry. The tie was dedicated to “Roman Mosaic”
In 1996 Masciadri designs and produces a collection on Leonardo da Vinci’s Leicester Code bought by Bill Gates, whom expresses in a letter his admiration for the interpretation of the precious manuscript

In 2006 Masciadri realizes a collection dedicated to dolphins, taking inspiration from greek mythology, Erodoto, from Latin literature, Pliny the  Elder, from Renaissance printing, Also Manuzio, and painting, Andrea Mantegna and Giulio Romano

The collection has been given to H.S.N PRINCE ALBERT II of Monaco
worldwide testimonial for the preservation and protection od cetacean, whom cngratulates in public not only the refinement of the silk, but also on the high content of the ties.
Rings…a big choice of forms and colours
the red one was the choice of Masciadri for me
It was a gift “thank you”
