MG: I’m convinced that everything has a soul, a meaning. Thousands are the masks scattered throughout not just Italy, but the world. Each of these masks has a unique expression, character, each hides a different meaning. I continue to carry out extensive research on them, discovering them hidden between arches, on gates and balconies during my many travels. I draw from them inspiration, soften their features, then portray them on my bags.
