Uncovering Italy’s Superlatives in people, places and things


Diego Percossi Papi

Visionary jewellery designer Diego Percossi Papi curates The ISSIMO Edit this month.

Diego Percossi Papi is a name that puts a twinkle in our eye, and one that certainly needs no introduction around here. The Rome-based jewellery designer has been a long-standing collaborator and friend of ISSIMO, sharing our enthusiasm for artisanal, ‘Made in Italy’ treasures that carry their own symbolism and stories. It was our pleasure to invite Diego to curate The ISSIMO Edit this month, which features a few of his top picks with a decidedly Roman twist.  

“It’s a pleasure for my family and I to have collaborated with ISSIMO on various occasions, and have our brand’s jewels currently featured here. I admire the elegant story that ISSIMO tells of Italy; its beauty, its artisanal riches, and, of course, its culinary traditions. For me, ISSIMO

encompasses all the senses – taste, smell, touch, hearing and sight!” says Diego. 

“My favourite Pellicano Hotel is Mezzatorre Hotel on the island of Ischia. It was recommended to me many years ago by a dear friend, particularly for its thermal spa waters and therapeutic treatments that relieved my shoulder pain in an exceptional way. Mezzatorre Hotel is in a superb position, and its beauty has always struck me. Both its aesthetic and emotional value have always been important to me. Marie-Louise Sciò has truly enhanced the hotel through her creative vision, making it an oasis of magical elegance,” he says
