"I chose Patricia because we wanted to introduce in the interiors of yachts Sanlorenzo more feminine, that have so far been alien to the world of modern yachting. Today it is the most needed at the global level, female designer, largely due to her talent to combine beauty and comfort. All her projects tend drop of irony, poetic sensitivity and great respect for the hard work of masters". Massimo Perotti, President Sanlorenzo
