When we met up with Joseph Roveto he told us some interesting stories… like when Jamie Lee Curtis asked ‘Do you like my body?’ for a new television project. Within minutes of coming for her first fitting, she’d taken all her clothes off - not in a dressing room - just in the office, and said: “what do you think?” I replied “you’re asking the wrong guy!” The biggest challenge with actors in general is that they’re extremely insecure. I have to say I’ve only ever asked twice for someone’s autograph; Bruce Springsteen and Fred Astaire». Who’s the most beautiful woman you’ve ever met? «That’s easy, Elisabeth Taylor! We all know she is very beautiful, but she is more beautiful in person, almost unreal. Ah, and another actress, Jacqueline Bisset. I worked with her for the Oscar’s. While I was ironing her dress, she came into the room and took her dress off… and they never wear underwear! They’re exhibitionists, they’re actors!»

You have been working on Eva Santucci’s project. How did you meet her and what is your working relationship based on? «I met her for the first time in Umbertide where she was singing; when she came off stage I told her I thought she was wonderful. We immediately clicked, I thought and I still think she has an unusual talent, her voice isn’t normal, it’s not average. I know people in the music business and I thought maybe I could help her, and she was smart enough to say okay». Other than fashion, what are your interests? «I love to cook, I cook every day. I love to bake; I grew up with very good food. My ancestors are Neapolitans and Sicilians. The conversations at home were only about food, not politics, or anything else… just food. I also like to travel».

In your opinion why do so many foreigners decide to live here? Who’s the most beau«Well, I can’t speak for tiful man you’ve ever met? the Brits, we’re very different. However Italy is a romantic «…I never met George Clooney, sorry! Give me a mo- dream!» ment I have to think about this...Christopher Reeve. He was not only ridiculously handsome, but so large. Not Last question do you like Burri? only tall, but had the widest shoulders... well, that’s part of «Yes, and I only have one thing to say…. I wish that this why he was chosen to be Superman!». amazing artist was promoted differently».
