For this reason, it is not surprising that this is the place where the singer threw parties, spent vacations with some of his romantic conquests and was installed during much of the pandemic. “The shape of a fish, the fin of a shark, the foam of the sea… nature is my source of inspiration,” explains designer Stefano Righini.
