In June 2015, she posted a Facebook status to explain why her husband decided to take her surname.

“Fathers, sons, brothers, men everywhere: Your legacy will not perish if you take your partner’s surname, or she keeps hers. I’ve been made aware that a comment I made regarding my marriage has garnered some attention. I felt proud that my husband decided to take my last name as his own… and I his.

“I shared my hesitation with him when he told me about his decision, not only did he say: ‘I don’t give a shhheeeetttt!!’ (with a very strong Italian accent!!) he also asked me: ‘Why not? What are you so afraid of?’ And it made me wonder… What am I so afraid of?

“Why is it so surprising, shocking- eventful that a man would take his wife’s surname? Women have never been asked if its ok for them to give up their names — why doesn’t that make the news?

“Men, you will not cease to exist by taking your partner’s surname. On the contrary — you’ll be remembered as a man who stood by change. I know our sons will respect and admire their father more because their father lead by example.”

The Italian artist was dapper in a pinstripe suit with a half-unbuttoned white shirt underneath as he wrapped his arm around his wife’s tiny waist.
