With the rise of social media, these days it’s easy to deem anyone with a substantial number of followers, an influencer. And while, ostensibly, it may seem like he’s just another influencer, when it comes to Pietro Pizzorni, to call him an influencer would be to only scratch the surface.

As a true jack-of-all-trades, though he’s widely known as a DJ, Pietro’s endeavors include everything from acting to modeling to managing businesses, all in addition to producing his own music. With multiple passions fueling his drive, he blazes trails with the aesthetic and manner of a progressive gentleman. Though many have said that the art of a gentleman has been lost on modern generations, everything about Pietro emulates the essence of a true gentleman.

“Most people think of me only as a DJ, but in reality, I’m doing so many different things now, “Pietro says.

Growing up in a town where shorts and sandals are the daily attire, the Miami native challenges the norm with his fashion as he emanates that of a gentleman— chic and refined, with thought and purpose.

“There’s very little class, the way men dress in Miami,” Pietro says. “I’m bringing back elegance, class and the aesthetic of a true gentleman with the clothes I wear.”

After recreating his persona and becoming a fashion blogger, Pietro’s thoughtfully curated image garnered the attention of various fashion brands interested in partnering with him. From there, he segued into modeling with the help of close friend and photographer, Jahmar Amani, with whom he works closely as Amani now shoots nearly 90% of Pietro’s content and photography. After Amani encouraged him to pursue modeling, Pietro signed with mother agency Casa Di Amani and then with Wilhelmina.

Now with the flexibility he’s granted by Wilhelmina, when it comes to partnering with brands, Pietro is able to make distinct choices that continue to resonate with the image of a gentleman. From flawlessly tailored three-piece suits and gorgeous photos behind the wheel of classic cars and motorcycles, it is no wonder that he now represents brands like Stitched, a Las Vegas originated suit and denim company, Suit Supply, a company that offers not only impeccable suits, but also waistcoats, trousers, jackets and coats, and recently, Ducati, as an ambassador of the Scrambler Café Racer, a vintage motorcycle redesigned, still with brand’s classic themes.

After gaining notoriety as a model and fashion blogger, Pietro has further added to his repertoire as an actor, picking up a role on the Univision’s primetime dating reality TV show “Enamorándonos” as the owner of “Pietro’s Bar.” Though it’s only been on the air since August of last year, the show has since doubled its projected ratings. With the show’s meteoric success, Pietro can be seen on Enamorándonos airing on “Unimas” Monday through Friday for two hours from 8-10 in the evening.

Though in addition to his modeling and acting, Pietro still possesses a constant passion for music. Over the last 12 years, his sound has adapted with the patterns of electronic music, house and underground, redefining the genre with his gentleman persona. With residencies in major Miami nightclubs Wall, Floyd and Treehouse, Pietro is now focused on producing six new tracks to be released over the course of this year. Up ahead, the progressive gentleman looks forward to releasing his single, “Axiom” on Go Deeva Records. The single will debut in March during Miami Music Week and the Winter Music Conference. Inspired by sounds he encountered while traveling to places like Ibiza, Berlin, & Tulum, Pietro now experiments with melodic techno and tech house tones.
