    Giovanni Soldini - sailor

    I am no better than any other sailor. Sometimes you can win a race for many reasons... your boat is well prepared, you have good luck in the moment you have the right tactics for the right race. But I think what makes me different is the fact that I am an old style sailor. I started many years ago with no money, and I had to do everything by myself. I am always with my boat from the beginning... I like to fix everything, I know how to do all the tasks on deck. 360 degrees. Many sailors just walk on board with everything done for them. This is not me.

    Luca Zingaretti - actor, director

    Years in theatre is very important for any actor. This is really where the school begins. You work all day to resolve the problem of acting... how you have to move your hands, how you have to move your legs, how you have to tell your lines. There are a lot of questions to get to the answers. In theatre you learn to truly focus. You have to have the resolve to be so focused for one or two hours. The world around you doesn't exist.

    Tina Arena - singer-songwriter, actress and producer

    Being a mother in today's age is challenging, everybody tells you that you can do everything, but really I don't know who came up with that! I think we do the best we can but the expectation that you are a champion woman is absolute rubbish. Women go through their struggle and it is ok as long as you have a great network of communication around you... that support is imperative. If you see your mates and something is not right you talk to them, if you see that they are struggling do everything in your power to give them a helping hand. It's all about a sense of community.

    Edgardo Osorio - founder of innovative luxury shoe brand Aquazzura

    When you are designing for another brand it is always someone else's vision, it is always someone else's DNA and someone else's woman. I was traveling so much and seeing so many things, but I really felt that there was a gap in the market. It was a time where platforms couldn't get any higher and shoes were complicated and everything seemed very uncomfortable and so I thought there might be a need for just a beautiful shoe that you can actually walk in... imagine that.

    Valentina Corti - actress

    Every character gives you a little piece of you, and this is like treasure that you keep. Every role teaches you something further. This is a gift. It is like a life school.
