Goodguys are a crew, a gang, a group, an invasive and heavy presence. Unwanted guests, who require a lot of attention. (Gran Riserva) stands for alcohol or cigars, the best that can be offered in town; A rare product, unique, a gift to offer for special occasions; selected rarities like precious stones. Goodguys are the difference between the ordinary and special, the focus point in the space. Their nature leads them to be necessary so as circumstance become unique and exclusive.
Furniture and furnishings are removed, TV and paintings are replaced, Daniele Milvio’s living room is only for the Goodguys. The walls are still marked by signs of the frames which occupied the wall before Goodguys ( Gran Riserva ) works would take their place. Like a wedding tuxedo, Goodguys (Gran Riserva) is the vintage cognac matched with the rare cigar, smoked with important guests in your living room, while admiring your collection of art made of canvas, gleaming copper plates, metal sculptures, decorated eggs, portraits, prints and a rare coffee service .
