Bye Neri

On Wednesday, November 17, our dear friend Neri left us.

Neri was a prominent figure in the Italian and the European leather & fetish community. He was elected Mister Leather Italia in 2016 and, during his reign, he travelled extensively all around Europe to promote the Italian fetish community. He attended both Mister Leather Europe contest (where he gained the second runner-up spot) and International Mister Leather in Chicago.

After his title-year, Neri continued his commitment to the Italian fetish community becoming a member of the Leather Club Roma board, a position he maintained for five years, until last spring.

During this period, Neri passionately dedicated himself to help the growth of his birthplace’s fetish community, organising numerous "Kinky Naples" nights and, in 2019, the first Neapolitan edition of the Fetish Pride Italy.

Mister, board member, partner… Neri was primarily a great friend for us; we had the pleasure of sharing with him travels, laughter, discussions, dinners, parties, meetings, drinks, tears, hugs, talks, chats, phone calls, messages. In a word, our lives.

We warmly embrace his family, all his loved ones and friends.
