"Italy is responsible for producing magnificent art that has endured throughout the centuries, from the Sistine Chapel to the Mona Lisa, from David to the Pietà," says Gabriella Paiella. "But I’m not here to talk about any of that. Instead, let us open our hearts and our minds to some Italian masterpieces of equally astonishing beauty: Furio Giunta’s shirts on The Sopranos." She asked Castelluccio about his character's shirts. He responded: “The character of Furio was supposed to be set apart from the American Italians. (Sopranos costume designer Juliet Polcsa) figured in order to make the character more authentic, his look set him apart from the other guys. She would say, 'I’ve got these Versace shirts.' Those loud Versace shirts were not my taste, obviously, but they totally worked for the character."
