NEW YORK, Aug. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Acclaimed entrepreneur and innovator, Federico Pignatelli della Leonessa, announced today a warm welcome to New York for teen environmentalist Greta Thunberg.

Passionate about the treatment of our planet and key environmental causes, Pignatelli della Leonessa went on to offer his state of the art studio complex, PIER59 STUDIOS, for the activist as a further platform for her commendable endeavor.

"We can no longer should ignore the fact that our planet is in a state of crisis," stated Mr. Pignatelli della Leonessa. "By drawing attention to the key issues that our global ecosystem faces today, Miss Thunberg is a meaningful agent of change, representing the next generation that will live in our dying Planet."

As also the founder of The INDUSTRY Model Mgmt, I want to assure her that she has the support of the agency, and the models and artists that fall under its umbrella," Pignatelli della Leonessa continues, "Anyone who calls our Planet their "Home", must now take strong actions in support of urgent and radical change!"

Designers and models are powerful influencers and can contribute to changes. We have strength in numbers. And we as a whole industry are stepping up to make a difference." 

"I compliment Ms. Thunberg's bravery and intelligence," Pignatelli della Leonessa went out to say. "She needs to know that we, at Art&Fashion Group, PIER59 STUDIOS and The INDUSTRY Model Mgmt, all stand behind her."
