Fabrizio Sclavi

I pesci rossi nascono sulle stelle

I pesci rossi nascono sulle stelle

This book is more than an autobiography, it's a journey back in time. An amazing journey filled with anecdotes, trips, meetings, adventures and dramas from Fabrizio Sclavi's life, a journalist and editor of important newspapers who has made his mark in fashion journalism in the past decades.

Each story and event, whether comical or dramatic, is told in the narrator’s trademark mixture of irony and sarcasm. Disabled since birth and openly gay, Fabrizio Sclavi doesn’t indulge in any anecdote, but shares with searing honesty the courage it takes to live a “differently” normal and “normally” incredible life. From his childhood spent in hospitals and clinics and his parents’ cake shop and bakery in Siena, to his rebellious university years in Brera in 1968, his entrance into the dazzling world of haute couture and his friendships with important figures like Andy Warhol, Giorgio Armani, Bob Wilson, Sting, Lou Reed and Grace Jones, in an ongoing struggle to live a “normal” life.
