Life passions: ART

Life passions: CARS

Life passions: AESTHETIC TASTE

Surrounding oneself with beauty and living in harmony with the elements make up the ideal life that has always accompanied him since he was a child. A beauty that can be expressed in different forms, from the most essential and minimalist to the more sophisticated ones.

From art to gourmet dining, from nature to automobiles, and in the meantime his career: each of his passions is a moment for reaffirming his convictions, his philosophy and his origins.

Dr. Bronz is a man who cultivates many interests and enjoys many passions. A man who holds firmly onto his ideals and a man who loves beauty, not only on the job, but during his leisure time as well. “Obviously I love the art of cosmetic surgery because I believe that there is an artistic drive in seeking harmony in lines and features. Naturally, I also love painting, sculpture and architecture. Often a painting or sculpture does not meet all standard aesthetic criteria, but strikes me because of some peculiarity. One example is the work of the artist Arman, who created a series of works that represent tools. I can identify with these works because there is an affinity with my profession: the artistic aspects as well as the tools and instruments that are essential to my job. So I have no favourite artist, but rather choose a work because I see something of myself in it, because it represents a phase of my life and so I like it. I also love the art of cooking and fine dining: I begin enjoying my meal with my eyes, with the decor of the dining room, in the table settings, in the presentation of the food and its garnishes. All these details contribute to creating the experience of tasting a dish.”

This philosophy can be found in the various facets of Dr. Bronz, who is always consistent in his beliefs and always seeking elements that represent them. Like automobiles. “I love the Lotus. It fully embodies my ideals. ‘Safe and easy’ was the motto of Colin Chapman, the founder of this automotive company, and in fact the car has simple mechanical parts, a small engine, a perfectly harmonious design, and is extremely lightweight.”

The desire to become a doctor took hold during his youth: “As early as the age of 5 I wanted to become a surgeon. My father was a doctor and he taught me to love this job, imprinting me with his same passions. We would spend entire weekends together in his office. This certainly influenced my professional evolution.”
Together with his father, however, Dr. Bronz also shared a passion for nature: “Together we would lose ourselves in the landscape, wherever we happened to be. Even today, this is one of the things that I love most: spending a day in the mountains alone, surrounded by nature, fully immersed in primordial scents and flavours, with time to reflect and meditate.”

Even the origins of the clinic logo are related to his innate nature. “I created it myself because I wanted it to be unique and mine alone. It represents a head with three eyes and two noses. If you observe it carefully, the right nose is thinner than the left nose. It is obviously a surreal situation, but I wanted to have the before and after of a potential surgical intervention in a single image. The hand is essential because it is a fundamental element of my trade. Finally, the union of the two parts emphasises the fact that the hand must always be guided by the head. In brief, this logo represents the quintessence of my job and at the same time, my principles, my convictions and my personality.”

Involved, coherent, decisive, passionate, original: Dr. Bronz is a man who truly believes in his ideals, puts them in practice, studies them and develops them. “Simplicity, clarity, and harmony” in his passions, in his daily routine, and in his life.
