101. Create a New Dress for a Torn Italy…

Roberto Cavalli101. Create a New Dress for a Torn Italy…

I spent two days in Sardinia…not much to tell, my house was my bat-zodiac moored in the marina of Porto Rotondo.

The weather throughout the weekend was not as I had hoped… but I needed to relax and bat-zodiac was moored near a small beach, ideal for playing ball with our two dogs, Lupo and Rosa!

On our first night we go to Porto Cervo. It seems to be in the middle of winter. The beautiful old port is totally deserted… I have never seen it like this before!

We take a short walk in the small main square… we are alone with our dogs… desolation… I let them off their leashes to run free!

The only thing that makes me realize that we are on the famous Costa Smeralda is the price of two cocktails in the bar at the center of the square, 75 Euros! Madness!

We end our evening out in our favorite pizza place, “Il Pomodoro” [The Tomato], the mussel soup was not up to last year… the pizza was excellent!… white wine… not bad. We spend less than the two drinks! 58 Euros… Recommended!

Porto RotondoA wonderful DVD film on the small screen of the bat-zodiac… but do not think that the evening ends in this way… I spend half of the night on Twitter! It pleases me to see the admiration people feel for me… certainly for my fashion… but I think my spontaneity surprises them! The thoughts that we exchange with the short,140-character messages bring us closer together and unite us “con simpatia!”

Roberto Cavalli - Lupo - RosaIn my last blog I told you about my thoughts… my dreams. On Twitter I am presenting a designer different from the one you imagined, colored like my fashion… with a positivity and personality transmitted through my words!

Some people are on Twitter to comment in a humorous and a light, vulgar, less formal way…

Through my ideas I would like to help young people “create a new dress for a torn Italy…” thoughts that cannot leave them indifferent.

My reactions, my answers are calm and reasonable… I’ve been preaching that you shouldn’t practice politics by screaming like Bebbe Grillo or by insulting one another as some government parties are doing. The quiet humor of my answers often leaves my attackers unarmed! Civility softens them… “do not imagine such a person” …”sorry about that…”

I am so excited by all the manifestations of “simpatia” that I have started a new Twitter account @UNITI_ITALIA. This will be my springboard to introduce, with sweetness and education, the spontaneity of my ideas…!

The Twitter account @Roberto_Cavalli will always be dedicated to my fashion… the designer who proposes and recommends…!

My dear friends, I hope to spend some evening with you, on Twitter of course!

Let me know how you wish to “create a new dress for a torn Italy…”

A hug and…

I LOVE YOU
Roberto Cavalli

    Buon Giorno a Lei Sign. Roberto 🙂
    la sto seguendo sia sul TWITTER…che sul nuovo UNITI ITALIA….ma lei tanto la seguirei…
    fin capo al mondo…perché mi ispira, e in questa sua avventura l’ammiro!!!

    anch’io avrei una proposta da farle,se le interessa,giú nel mio paese c’ era una volta una fabrica con piú di 100 dipendenti,la maggiorparte erano Sarte…quattro anni fá,il fallimento!!!
    Ora puó ben immagginare.
    Le uniche fabriche rimaste cercano a stento di sopravvivere…quelle delle scarpe…infatti le bellissime scarpe che indossono le grandi VIP Dal Design Zanotti,vengono artigianalmente fatte nel mio paese.
    Se ha una proposta o delle idee…nel campo del sartoriale…penso che 100 persone sarebbero felici di ricominciare a lavorare!

    La politica… non si puó reclamare il giusto…sotto voce…dopo tanto marciume purtroppo.

    Con Affetto e ammirazione
    Marí 🙂

    Buonasera Mr. Cavalli! Hope you enjoyed your time in Sardinia. I’ve heard it’s a beautiful place and extremely expensive! You look gorgeous in the photos. Lupo and Rosa are so cute. Mr. Cavalli I’m not a big fan of talking politics to be honest. The political situation is quite unpleasant in Ukraine. The social and economic situation is extremely hard for Ukrainians. I might not sound optimistic but i doubt anything can be done about it. Wish all the best for Italy and Italians! Kisses and hugs. MUCH LOVE. AnnaSofi

    Grande Cavalli!!
    75 Euro per due aperitivi??? e che c’era la polvere d’oro dentro?? Mah!!
    Belle le foto sulla spiaggia…si vede che faceva freschino eh? 🙂
    Mi piace molto l’idea di “creare” un nuovo vestito per l’italia.
    Intanto partirei semplicemente con il cambio TOTALE E COMPLETO dell’attuale classe politica, che non ci rappresenta dagli anni di Pertini presidente della repubblica.
    Secondo di poi farei come in Islanda, dove il popolo si è liberato da giogo vergognoso e illegale del potere bancario, dichiarando le banche illegali alla stregua di un’associazione a delinquere di stampo mafioso.
    Terzo, rivedere IMMEDIATAMENTE il sistema delle tasse e lotta serrata agli evasori, quei “furbi” che ci fanno pagare anche la loro parte non pagando le tasse……E’ necessario creare un regime fiscale che non abbia la pressione di 20 strozzini insieme!!!!
    E quarto….già che ci siamo….un bel fair play finanziario VERO per le squadre di calcio….e non la farsa che c’è adesso (magari poi si lotta anche noi per qualcosa!)
    Via vado a letto, domattina impegno sul passo del giogo! 🙂
    Ciao Roberto, un abbraccione forte!
    Francesco.

    grande insegnamento calma divertente,dolcezza,educazione e spontaneità la penso così anche io ma devo imparare da chi è più grande e ne ha vissute tante per le ultime tre mi sembra di esserci sulle prime due devo lavorarci e il contatto con tanta gente può servire sopratutto nei quartieri dove si respira la fiorentinità quel gran modo di scherzare e prendersi in giro andrò un po’ a scuola al circolo di san niccolò

    Dear Roberto! I couldn’t stand a temptation not to write you. I have found this site by chance and experience the filling of great delight. I am so happy for being blessed with the opportunity to wear the dresses made of the fabric from CAVALLI. I am cracked of all of them! I am sure my whole life might have been a real nightmare if I hadn’t had such treasure. You have already guessed what I am talking about – about your creations. I think, only a person with a tender heart and a wonderful soul could get and indulge the woman’s desires. My best wishes from Ukraine! Have a good luck! I adore you!
    P.S. In regard to a new dress my point of view is: create a dress for a flourishing Italy. Viva Italia!
