B.E.S.T. Master CoordinatorThe spirit of sustainability lies within Olga.
A connoisseur for creativity, networking and building communities, she remains committed to promoting and sustaining art, culture and fashion in all its forms.
The launch of Fashion B.E.S.T. by Michelangelo Pistoletto and Franca Sozzani in 2009 commenced Olga’s commitment at Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto.
