My world of inspiration
Daniele Cavalli declares his love for Florence
When did you feel your first “creative spark”?
Definitely with music.
Your style reveals a world of inspiration. What couldn’t you do without?
Style is something to love and cultivate. I love having fetishes: I fall in and out. But I’ll never take off my little chain.
What moves you?
The mastery of beautifully made products.
Your city hangouts?
La Cucina del Garga, a restaurant and my home away from home, and Galleria Romanelli, the kingdom of fragrances Sileno Cheloni, the Accademia Gallery and Moleria Locchi.
You opened Atelier de’ Nerli in Florence: restaurant, art gallery and craft atelier in the heart of the Oltrarno…
It’s a project borne out of my friendship with chef Gianluca Camilotto and love of Florence. It’s a microcosm of excellence, including Antico Setificio Fiorentino, Casa Wolf, Castorina, L’Ippogrifo, Ugo Poggi and Il Bronzetto. On sale soon, like in a proper atelier.
Duskmann instead is the name of your art world…
Yes, it’s my refuge, a place where I can express my creative side with a more international approach, a container of contemporary Florence.
