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.)

That jacket is awesome! Eidos makes some incredible stuff

Say Hi! to our newly adopted Mini Schnauzer, Flannel! He’s very good with humans, so he’ll join us in our workshop on most Saturdays. He has gone through a sad 7 years of his life thus far, having been neglected and ill-treated by his 3 previous owners. 
To change his fate, we changed his name to Flannel (previously Sky). Read about him at http://youdecidelor.wordpress.com/2013/08/21/a-sad-story-about-a-dog-named-sky/.
To accommodate Lord Flannel’s strict exercise regime and meal times, please note our opening hours on weekends have been changed to:Saturdays -  0900 to 1700hrsSundays - 1300 to 1700hrs
What remains unchanged:Weekdays - By appointment onlyClosed on Mondays and public holidays
P/s: Those are nail guards to prevent him from scratching himself as he is recovering from skin problems. We did not paint his nails.

Such a handsome guy. So sad he was mistreated. He’s in great hands now!
