About Masseria Potenti
Within an estate of about one hundred and thirty hectares and, in the countryside of Manduria, rises the sixteenth century Masseria Potenti, originally belonging to the rich and powerful family of the Imperiali. It is located in a smooth landscape which gently rolls towards the enchanting Ionian sea, amongst endless olive groves, vineyards and Mediterranean thicket. With strong respect for its ancient architecture, the Masseria – a large type of Italian farm – has today become a unique farmhouse which unites its strong agricultural identity with refined hospitality.

What was the spark for your brand? Where did the story begin?

What inspires you creatively?
Nature, the spontaneous vibe of the nature, the multicultural mix of different countries, different vibes of different countries, the combination of countries, new designs, and vintage treasures. This is why I love working with clients from all over the world. They all teach me something different.
Most memorable place you’ve travelled?
I can’t really choose. For any country that I explore, there are things that I love a lot. I traveled to Xuma in the Bahamas, and I loved how untouched and un-touristy it was. In general, I love untouched, natural places.
On a typical weekend we’ll find you?
I live in between Milan and Puglia, so you can find me in Puglia at the beach, or in the market. I like to explore new beaches. My favorite at moment is Salina dei Monasi. In Milan, I love to go shopping and go to new exhibitions in museums.
