Samuele Mazza is an interdisciplinary character, a contemporary dandy, an incurable “curious”. To write about him requires a certain literary effort. The character has always moved following the macro cultural phenomenon’s that have characterized our times. In the 80’s (very young) he devoted himself, succesfully, to the fashion business: “I was involved in fashion, when it represented an evolutionary phenomenon… I stopped working with it when the phenomenon was about to be dominated by investment funds and therefore become a product, focused on wide distribution and no longer a cult phenomenon” Mazza affirms. His innate transversality and the need for next experiences will project him across the atlantic reality between Milan and New York, bringing life in the 90’s to a current of artistic events oriented towards recreational art. Shoes, glasses, ties, bras, bags… “I tried to create art from, objects that I love, and that are part of my personal imaginary, l interpreted them artistically and therefore stopped them from bring “short terms” consumable objects linked to fashion shows. I wanted these objects to become "relics" testimonials of a time and a generation mine.l also brought out a series of books that took fashion from an art form to a theory. – Made in Italy – realized for Electa Mondadori. A series of books on the masters of the fashion industry in fact: “while I was working on the layout of the book about Versace, the murder in Miami happened. at that moment I felt hit by an unexpected responsibility, the stories of various characters that I was writing about were involved in much more than fashion… at that moment the whole word discovered a crime of homosexual reality. The world became aware of the relationship between two men, two lovers, about the connection to financial interests and billions… a "Made in Italy" saga greater than the American soap opera: Dynasty”.
