I met Stefano Conticelli by chance. I was wandering through the large corridors of the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, last April, when I came across his masterpiece: a luxury Vespa covered with real leather or -let’s say- a Vespa with a luxury outfit on. Cool, isn’t it?


Stefano Conticelli

Stefano, who has already been noticed by Mr. Loro Piana and Pomellato, makes his artworks according to old manufacturing techniques. He uses a vast array of materials, from the most modern and advanced to the more traditional ones: cashmere, moleskine, carded flannel, pure wool felt, suede and  leather of the highest quality.

He came up to my mind recently, after a short trip to Rome and I couldn’t help thinking how cool could have been riding his Vespa through the streets of the eternal city, enjoying  the springtime breeze.

Stefano-ConticelliRome is not far from Orvieto (Umbria), Stefano’s hometown. It’s a lovely historic site in the heart of Italy. So, it might be wise to plan a visit to his shop, ‘The Bottega Conticelli’, for several reasons. First of all because he will treat you with a little gift (a handmade leather bookmark), secondly because you will have the unique chance to see the techniques of leathermaking.

Don’t miss it!
