15 September 1999 - Il Messaggero

The handsome priest - 29-year-old model from Chieti, after working for Versace and Pignatelli, is now in a seminar to help the poor and sick. He's studying in the States now to become a missionary / Il prete bello - Ventinove anni, chietino, dopo aver raggiunto il successo con gli stilisti Versace e Pignatelli ora è entrato in seminario e aiuta i poveri e i malati Mauro, dalle sfilate alla tonaca - L'ex top model negli Stati Uniti per prendere i voti e fare il missionario
Mauro Primavera left fashion clothes for a simple friar's tunic; athletic, blue eyes, dark hair, is now studying theology in New Jersey. After working 6 years in the fashion world among gorgeous women, he had recently become more solitary. He approached the Comunità catecumenale, Milan, where his decision was taken. He spent one month with his parents (which he had never done for years) and his father, originary of Guardiagrele, who was deeply moved, while his mother, a busy voluntary worker, accepted his decision more easily. Stylist Carlo Pignatelli witnesses the vocation "I saw something great growing before my eyes".
