NONNI PARFUM is a celebratory tribute to Virginia Di Somma’s charming mother Nina on the

anniversary of her 100 th birthday. This extraordinarily vibrant and creatively talented woman was born

to Italian immigrants Nino and Bruna in Christchurch New Zealand in 1919.

Her first grandchild, while learning to pronounce Nonna settled on the affectionate ‘nomignoli’ NONNI.

Nonni has stayed with Nina to this day and truly reflects her friendly and light-hearted character.

Nina spent her teenage years in Rome working for renowned shoemakers Salvatore Ferragamo.

A local photographer noticed Nina dressing the store window one afternoon and asked her to be his

muse for a photographic competition.

This winning image captures a memorable time in Nina’s life and alludes beautifully to the sentiment:

“Che tu possa vivere cent’anni” … May you live 100 years!


15ml glass atomizer and sustainable bamboo case for safe travelling. Far more than just a perfume NONNI PARFUM is imbued with sentiment and blessing for a long life.
