Knowing Magistretti was a fairy tale. There is an anecdote that, thinking back, still moves me today. He had fallen in love forty years earlier with the work of a Sicilian artist, exhibited at the Schwarz Gallery in Milan. He wanted to meet him again and, knowing my passion for art, he told me about it. I understood that he meant Emilio Isgrò, who in the meantime had moved to Milan. I organized the meeting and, when, creating a certain suspense, I took Vico Magistretti to Isgrò’s workshop home, they were both moved. Two guys meeting again after more than 40 years... Another beautiful moment was when, a few months before he died, Magistretti invited me to his house and asked me to make a lamp. Unfortunately, however, his heirs decided that they wouldn’t produce anything that wasn’t in production before his death. He was a wonderful person, with an exceptional culture, a rare sensibility. I have experienced adventures with Starck, Arad, Libeskind, Fuksas, among others, and I was lucky enough to live through this historical period. Not that FIAM is big, but they had the opportunity to create objects that they couldn’t have made elsewhere.
