Nicola Radano – What’s on your mantelpiece?

Section:

A 20-question interview with Nicola Radano, an Italian fashion blogger and founder of tie producers Spacca Neapolis

 

The Steeple Times shares “wit and wisdom”. What’s your guiding force?

Determination and loyalty.

 

“Don’t get even, get medieval” is, in our humble opinion, a great motto. What’s yours?

“One can get rich at any moment, but if one has no class, one is always a beggar” – paraphrased from philosopher and connoisseur of Neapolitan culture Luciano De Crescenzo.

 

Kerry Katona was considered unacceptable in 2007. Who or what is unacceptable in 2016?

A lot of people.

 

Tony Blair misses being Prime Minister. What do you miss most in your life?

I miss being able to sail.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

Living in a world populated by principled people.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the banking crisis?

The banking crisis was born to the low value given to the Euro. I have no words to say on that.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

“I can’t do it”.

 

In the UK, some people consider charity to “begin at home”. What’s your view and what causes do you personally support?

For me, it’s absolutely right to support both domestic and international charities. Helping someone who has little is the most gallant gesture that anyone can do.

 

The judge in Law Abiding Citizen states: “I can pretty much do whatever I want” before being blown up whilst answering her mobile phone. What’s your view on the appropriate use of such devices?

Smartphones are now improperly used by young children. This is harmful because many of them prefer using them to reading a good book.

If you could fill a carriage on The Orient Express, who would be your fellow passengers?

Only elegant men.

 

If you were unfortunate enough to end up on death row, what would be your last meal and where would you eat it?

A plate of spaghetti with tomato sauce by the sea.

 

What time is it acceptable to consume the first drink of the day?

In the afternoon.

 

A Negroni, a martini or a cup of tea?

A cup of Neapolitan coffee please.

 

Whose parties do you enjoy the most and why?

I like afternoon appetizers in the summer time. I find them most relaxing.

 

Who is the most positive person you know?

My mum.

 

What’s your most guilty pleasure?

Sleeping in late without being interrupted.

 

If a tattoo were to sum you up, what would it be of?

A rudder.

 

If you were a car, what marque would you be?

A Porsche.

 

Cilla Black presented Surprise, Surprise. Tell us the most surprising thing about you.

That I’ve been able to create unexpected things from nothing.

 

What’s currently sitting on your mantelpiece?

Family photos, antique ashtrays and a clock.

 

Nicola Radano declares his passion to be classical fashion and Neapolitan tailoring. He established a blog about the subject titled ‘Me, Myself & I’ in 2013 and launched his own firm of hand sewn tie producers, Spacca Neapolis, in 2016.
