A "Made in Puglia" label for Aeroporti di Puglia?
For the moment it is a simple willingness to donate the entire executive project for the realization of the uniforms of the ground staff employed in the four Apulian airports. Angelo Galasso, the Apulian creative director (of Francavilla Fontana in the province of Brindisi), considered one of the most eclectic designers on the international scene, with collections that satisfy an international market that goes from London to New York, expanding throughout Europe, crossing over to Tokyo , Shanghai and Hong Kong, arriving to export their creations to the Arab Emirates and Africa, did not want to abide by the strict procedure dictated by the notice of Adp: without losing time instead responded to the company by sending the executive drawings of the clothes for the whole adp staff "not asking - says Galasso - nothing in return", if not the possibility of being able to carry out the project for the region to which it continues to be viscerally linked despite his work led him to live far away, from London to New York where it is these days to define the opening of three new stores in different cities of the USA. "From the London office - the creative director added - I have already sent the file to the airport company. In the announcement there was no reference to any sum, nor would it have been my intention to receive anything in return. At sixty I want to do something for my land. And this seemed like a good opportunity to give back to my region everything it gave me ”. The same one from where Galasso started 30 years ago, first to Rome, where he opened the first seven stores with the label "Interno 8" then another 90 throughout Italy and finally in London. In the nineties he founded his maison with the brand "Billionaire Italian Couture" together with Flavio Briatore, with stores all over the world. Today the name "Angelo Galasso" is a brand that uses the initials AG and wears Hollywood actors, from Clint Eastwood to Al Pacino, Stevie Wonder, Mickey Rourke, Delroy Lindo, Lennox Lewis, Chris Brown, Italian journalists including the most well-known on TV, Bruno Vespa, in addition to the famous star chef Giorgio Locatelli who will be dressed AG for the next edition of Masterchef. "I expect - he adds - that Puglia will respond to the offer and I am certain by the end of the summer to be able to meet not only the president of Adp but also the governor himself Emiliano to start an absolutely free collaboration for other initiatives that can combine the beauty of the the most beautiful region in the world with the style and elegance of the personnel of the airports to which the welcoming role of the millions of tourists and travelers who land in Puglia every year ".
