- STAIY EDIT: Can you tell us what it is about travelling that caught your heart? Do you have any favourite destinations?
FEDERICA DI NARDO: I love travelling because I believe it is one of the highest cultural expressions: travelling means challenging yourself, getting out of your comfort zone, often putting yourself at stake when facing contexts to which you are not accustomed… sometimes it is difficult, but overcoming that difficulty allows us to grow as individuals.
My favourite destinations are northern European countries, such as Iceland and Lapland, where I find peace. I have always been fascinated by how magical those scenarios are and I will never forget the first time I saw the northern lights.
- STAIY EDIT: How would you describe your style? Can you tell us 3 items you always bring with you in your travels?
FEDERICA DI NARDO: My style is definitely minimalist but at the same time contaminated by the many journeys I’ve made and the cultures I’ve met; each of which has left me a little piece of itself.
When I travel, my suitcase never lacks a mackintosh (strictly in pop colours), a shirt, an iconic and timeless piece, and of course a camera to capture snapshots.
