ON AUGUST 2, IN THE YEAR 47 BC, A BLOODY BUT SWIFT BATTLE TOOK PLACE ON THE HILLTOP OF ZILE, IN THE TOKAT PROVINCE OF NORTHERN TURKEY. THE FIGHT WAS BETWEEN THE FORCES OF JULIUS CESAR AND ONE OF HIS STRONGEST ENEMIES, PHARNACES II. CESAR CAME TO MEET PHARNACES AFTER HE WON THE BATTLE OF THE NILE IN EGYPT. THE BATTLE ON THE SMALL HILL WAS ANOTHER VICTORY FOR ROME AND A DECISIVE POINT IN CESAR’S CIVIL WAR. THE CAMPAIGN ONLY TOOK 5 DAYS AND WAS SO COMPLETE THAT WHEN CESAR RETURNED HOME HIS SPEECH ONLY CONTAINED THREE WORDS: VENI, VIDI, VICI. I CAME, I SAW, I CONQUERED.
London based photographer Dylan Rosser had seen Simone Lucioli around in the British capital city several times. But as usual he was too shy to approach him, until he noticed the handsome Italian in the portfolio of another model. He learned Simone had an online profile and it was there when the two actually met. After that, it was just a matter of time before a real encounter between the two men took place.
Simone Lucioli was born on February 8, 1980, in the city of Rome, where his mother was running a hairdresser salon. After studying foreign languages and the performing arts of dance, song and drama, Simone actually followed in his mother footsteps and started working as hairdresser and make up artist for theaters and musical shows and Italian TV shows. Life eventually brought the sexy Simone to London, where he started his own business in a studio situated in the luxury of the rejuvenation spa in the London Baglioni Hotel, located in Kensington Garden. Here he got the opportunity to work with many celebrities, such as Alessandra Martines, Courtney Love and Geri Halliwell. It was also in this period in his life he had his first experiences in fashion photoshoots, working for Azagury and Fashion156.
As it is often the case with people who work in the creative industry, Simone’s freetime activities are closely related to his professional life. He loves fashion. He loves taking care of himself, meaning going to the gym on regular times and following a healthy diet and life style. He likes to cook, watch comedy shows and hang out with friends in trendy bars and London clubs. Like his illustrious ancestor, he likes to travel, when time allows him. Single at the moment, he does have a special someone in his life. Simone Lucioli is a new victory for Dylan Rosser, soon to be seen on his online portfolio, and with a face and body like his, it seems only a matter of time before he will conquer not only London, but the rest of world as well. –B-
