One movie to watch over and over again: Actually two…
Barry Lyndon by Stanley Kubrick



and Nocturnal Animals by Tom Ford.



A drink to celebrate: It’s seasonal for me… Margarita in winter, Lillet with ice in spring, white wine in summer and red wine in autumn.


One picture to remember: Coquelicot de Robert Mapplethorpe. It reminds me that all beauty is elusive and ephemeral.

One artist to be locked up with: Keith Haring for his generosity and his freedom to use any medium.



Food for thought – share a recipe: My grandmother’s family “pastasciutta” recipe that I can’t share… it’s a family secret !
