In 2020 Nick was the creative director and stylist for Achille Lauro’s now iconic Sanremo performance, creating an unprecedented media hype.

In 2021 he returned to Sanremo with Achille Lauro, with whom he has been collaborating on styling and creative direction since 2019, and with Maneskin, who he dressed to win the festival and the Eurovision Song Contest.
