Gaetano Pollice -Made in Italy-

Black Sheep


bologna / italy

Italy is my country.
Molise is where my heart is.
Molise It’s a small region.
A jewel in between the Apennines of

But they represent passion, love, joy. All
And if you manage to find at least one of
these things in one of my bags, then you
made me happy.
