Then the opportunity to return to Italy arrived. First in Rome, where the designer worked in the atelier of the Fontana Sisters and since 1999 in the Gattinoni Atelier, where he had the opportunity to nourish his soul as a couturier. Then Milan, where he collected experiences working for the biggest names in Made in Italy: Dolce & Gabbana, Philosophy and then moved to Trussardi, where he remained for seven years.

In 2007 the decision to found his own brand was taken and Mario Dice was born. The brand officially entered the calendar of Milanese fashion shows in January 2015, presenting its men’s collection. A month later, Mario Dice also presented his women’s proposals, while he continued to lead Capucci’s creative direction.
