Interview with Antonio Ciongoli of Eidos Napoli, Part 2
David Isle: What’s your background and how did you get to where you are now? Where did your interest in design begin?
Antonio Ciongoli: I did my senior year of high school in Rome. And that’s when I really discovered art history. Then when I got to college, I double majored in art history and communications. I really thought I was going to study art history. I was at Villanova, which is a great school, but the art history department wasn’t great, and the communications department wasn’t great. So I applied to transfer, and applied to a bunch of art history schools and communication schools. I got into the communication schools, and not the art history schools. So the decision was made for me. But my interest in art history has always found its way into what I do. Last season was about Florence and there were many references to art history in the collection.
When was out at USC, I started working designing skate shoes, since I grew up a skateboarder. I had a friend who grew up with some professional skateboarders, in particular one named Brian Wenning, who was a skateboarder for DC Shoes. So I ended up designing a shoe for him, and that was my first entry into [designing]. And I decided it was something interested in and wanted to go into.
Want to read more about how Antonio went from designing skate shoes to designing Italian menswear? It’s all here. (You’ll have to wait for another installment to hear about the beard.)
The meaning of life is just to be alive. It is so plain and so obvious and so simple. And yet, everybody rushes around in a great panic as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves. — Alan Wilson Watts (via thatkindofwoman)
