How did you discover Ibiza?
I spent my first summer in IBIZA when I was just three months old. We had a house in Roca Llisa.
My father, Juan Ferrer Grífols, a well-known fashion and textile entrepreneur met Claude Montana in Ibiza and became his patron. We moved to IBIZA when I was seven years old and I attended the Jesús y de Puig Den Valls school. My mother, Mietta Leoni, a renowned Italian entrepreneur and top model, was one of the precursors of the Adlib Fashion, with Princess Smilja, who was like a member of our family and, well... My mother's body is at rest in IBIZA. She asked us to take her ashes there when she passed away. My brother, Paco Polenghi, my sister-in-law, Alessandra Colombo, and my nephew León also live on the island. They are following in the footsteps of what we did as children with their own sons and daughters.
What does Ibiza mean to you?
Family, home, creativity, magic, my special place in the world.
What does the island transmit to you?
What are your favourite things to do in Ibiza?
I like everything. The beaches, beach bars, the different atmospheres, the markets... I love it all.
Which song makes you think of Ibiza, and why?
“People From Ibiza”. It reminds me of KU, of the nights when I used to go to Pacha as a young girl or to KU for dinner with my parents. The shoulder pads, the fans. That era left a mark in the world.
A special memory?
I have so many memories that I can't pick just one, but if I close my eyes, I remember sailing around the island in our boat and the races dressed in Adlib fashion at the Roca Lisa Golf Club.
What do you tell your friends about Ibiza?
If you haven't been to Ibiza, you haven't been anywhere. A visit to the island is a must for the senses.
Ibiza is a lot of Ibizas on the same island, and every trip is a world.
