«We became friends ever since. I saw Giovanna, her daughter grow up: when she won the David di Donatello, she wanted to wear her father’s tuxedo. I unstitched it all and remade it for her. When she saw herself in the mirror, she started crying and so did I, in front of 'this girl who was really beautiful».
A lot of cinema passes through Gallo's velvets. Michele Placido, Sergio Castellitto, Giancarlo Giannini, Stefano Accorsi, David Zard, Kabir Bedi, Omero Antonutti, his Atelier becomes a temple of style that leads him to meet and dress famous people such as Giuseppe Ungaretti, Christian Barnard, Giacomo Manzù, Emilio Colombo , Nikita Khrushchev, Andrew Cuomo, John Wayne.
He only needs scissors and an iron to transform even just three meters of fabric into a precious work of art like a sculpture in which each element is molded to the highest level of manufacturing and the devotion to the final product. rendere unico il valore della creazione su misuraOut of precious fabric Luigi Gall upholds the value of a unique tailor-made creation, the perfect suit. His passion leads him to the conquest of awards and merits from the highest institutions. He revolves around the story of him.
«Once a well-known tailor told me: "Happiness is in work, and a little in the family". Today I have six children and he, who lived alone, was wrong in the proportions. The family is the center, the rest follows. After all, it is only a question of well-made clothes». Quite right. Even if born noble, to compensate for the torn shorts.
«After school - says Marco Gallo, who studied in Rome at the Armando Diaz Institute (graduating as a fashion operator) and later at the European Chamber of Haute Couture - as a boy I would put myself side by side with my father to steal the secrets, and my mother used to make me hand stitch initials on my shirts to test me. I still remember when a customer walked in I could guess if he was wearing a suit made by my father or not. In this way I understood, almost for fun, that one day I could follow in my father's footsteps».
And so it was: thanks to the technical preparation learned in the schools, in the internships with high fashion brands such as Gattinoni, Renato Balestra, but, in particular, from the mastery of his father, Marco continues to propose the beauty of the artfully made combining traditionality with modernity as well as technological experimentation.
«I feel a lot of satisfaction in creating unique clothes and accessories, I always try to create something that goes well with the character of each individual person and enhance the physical qualities with an appropriate cut. I am very attracted to the new challenges. We were the first to receive, experiment and create with a fresh wool fabric patented by Loro Piana. We created a jacket-trousers suit, the lightest in the world, which is practically crease-resistant. Even crumpled up and thrown in a suitcase, it is flawless».
