A global movement that began in August 2018, when 15-year-old Greta Thunberg and other young activists began a school strike for climate. Every school day for three weeks, they sat outside the Swedish Parliament, demanding urgent action on the climate crisis.
Her actions sparked an international awakening, with fellow students and activists uniting around the world to protest outside their local parliaments and city halls. Along with other groups across the world, Fridays for Future is part of a hopeful new wave of change.

Naples has long been famous for its tailors. Italians and foreigners alike have flocked to this southern Italian city for handmade suits. The New York Times is reporting that Neapolitan tailoring is hotter than ever.
“And the Neapolitan tailors seem to be more successful than the chaotic city itself in moving further into the 21st century. Like the waters of the bay that rise and fall along the coastline, they have had good years and bad. But, today, the bespoke suit is back and doing well, even against the challenge of factory-made ready to wear,” fashion critic Suzy Menkes reports.
The “Maison Cilento” was founded back in 1780 and since then it has been one of the most represented and relevant Italian Fashion companies. Its history has been documented by many traces and preserved in its historical archives.
Today, the Maison Cilento is home at the Riviera of Chiaia, within the splendid Palazzo Ludolf, and is led by Ugo Cilento, the eighth generation of the historic family who, with passion, commitment, creativity and seriousness, has spread the Neapolitan style in the world.
I was born in Ginosa, a small provincial town, between Taranto and Matera.
Since my tender age, I used to go to the family’s tailor’s shop, the place that has contributed to let me into “my world”. My memories and many stories are always present, the setting is a kind of magic beyond words, the scent of the iron’s steam when touching the cloths will always be unforgettable. The attendance of the workshop and the traditional rigid education have taught me the simplicity, the sacrifice, the dedication and to sharpen the skills.The curiosity, the desire to learn, to discover and travel gave me the opportunity to experience beauty. A quality which I became attached to and that I carry in any moment.The generous and friendly reception that the international market has reserved to my creations, has allowed me to think of a business model that could answer to my ideals and to my philosophy.
“A sartorial field trip” is how Matt Hranek described his recent visit to Naples. The writer, photographer, and host of the TV series Alternate Route traveled to southern Italy’s tailoring capital to sample the wares of the Chiaia neighborhood, the city’s elegant waterfront answer to Savile Row. Using the Grand Hotel Vesuvio as his base, Hranek followed in the footsteps of generations of Neapolitan gentlemen and inducted himself into the renowned ateliers of E. Marinella, Piccolo, and Rubinacci. While bespoke in the suiting world can mean parting with a fair few thousand euros, not to mention a week of one’s life, his trip instead included more affordable (and speedier) forays into custom ties, shirts, and handmade umbrellas—what he calls “the ultimate ‘gentleman’ accessories.
La storia di Salvatore Piccolo è intrecciata come la trama di un tessuto, all’anima più profonda di Napoli, ai suoi colori, alla sua gente, alla sua storia ma anche alla sua vivacità e alla voglia di rinnovarsi. Era il lontano 1351 quando nella Chiesa di S. Eligio al Mercato nacque la Confraternita dei Sartori e con essa la celebre scuola sartoriale napoletana. Un’arte antica e raffinatissima che conosceva a perfezione anche Maria Cavagnoli, madre di Salvatore, che proprio in quello stesso quartiere, a Piazza Mercato, confezionava in casa camicie su misura.
