Years later, in 2013, he decided to leave his beloved Italy and changing the romantic venetian "calles" for the great waves of Australia in the pursuit of a change. This trip was revealing for CarloAlberto because he discovered that he wanted to do something different with his life and not just have a 'regular job. However, at the moment he wasn't ready to decide what to do.
"That rusty look cannot be wasted", he thought.
On the other hand, he had branded lenses that he didn't like and in that second, it all made sense. He wanted to do his own Independent Eyewear Brand that respects him, his style and his vision. People believed him crazy. Back in Venice, in the garage of his father's house, he set up a small laboratory and without professional knowledge, he began to experiment with different materials; aluminum, steel, acids in order to obtain that rusty look that he saw in the Canary Island. After that, creates a few samples of the Eyewear he had in mind and named the brand "Moody" as he describes it's his own personality. Hybrid Start, the first collection, became a success because the original shapes and the raw materials. Is still available here.
"At the beginning was really hard, because opticians thought that Moody was way too eccentric", says CarloAlberto.
