The Italian Fashionist. This is how Silvia Rizzo has been known within the international tour. The Italian rider who elected Germany as her second homeland, has always made brave choices about her outfit, and this has become her trademark in the saddle. Always careful to everything around her in the fashion field, open to all kind of innovation and experimentation, she acted as a trailblazer in a new way of conceiving the discipline of dressage, and gave a huge contribution to shake and modernize a world which risks to stay immovable. And the crowd seems to notice this: Silvia is one of the most popular and more easily recognizable rider for a multitude of fans, to such extent that she deserved the nickname « The fashionist ». This is due to the natural bond she can establish with her public thanks to her smile and kindness, what makes Silvia one of the most intriguing characters on the equestrian scene.
For all these reasons, Italian fashion designer Gino Moschetti immediately thought of her as a perfect testimonial for his brand. Not only she is a dressage rider of international level, she also embodies perfectly the concept behind Accademia Italiana: to provide professional riders with a wide range of breeches, polos and competition jackets assuring comfort, stability and a new stylish outfit.
Silvia Rizzo joined that mission with great enthusiasm. Her link with the brand got stronger year after year thanks to a mutual respect and a common faith in the need for a clear change in the equestrian world.
Now, after a long and successful collaboration made of ambitious targets achieved together, Gino Moschetti and Silvia Rizzo decided to take a further step within their partnership. From the green fields of her German estate Hof Marabunta, where she lives in company of her beloved horses, Silvia, together with her trainer and partner Michele Betti, has recently become an Accademia Italiana official retailer, and in this new position she has been playing an important role not only in Northern Germany.
From continuative items Master and Dresseur to the most contemporary ones, from prints to colors which are distinctive features of Accademia Italiana, Silvia Rizzo goes on to represent at her best the brand products and philosophy.
Thanks to her status as a fashion icon and communication skills, Silvia can now approach a demanding and qualified public all over Germany to the brand collections, also through a new show-room, staged at her estate in Lower Saxony.
