Pietro Boselli from Models 1 managed to break the internet earlier this year when one of his students uploaded online a picture of him with the caption ‘when your maths teacher is a male model’ – and now he’s officially an Attitude cover star!

In a gay press exclusive, the PhD student has striped off to his smalls for a hot new shoot in the new June Issue of Attitude – a swimwear and underwear special – in which the Italian discusses life in the fast-lane since his pictures went viral.


“People started messaging me and sending screengrabs of the trends on Facebook and things like that. I actually didn’t even know what that meant as I don’t use Facebook, but it just escalated really quickly,” he says.

“I don’t think I’m worth the buzz, I guess I struggle to understand it. It just blew up and, well, it’s been fun!

“It’s still quite hard to get my head around but I’m really happy to be doing this, besides it’s always going to help my modelling career.”

Pietro is just one of two special edition covers available for the swimwear and underwear issue, however, the other being former Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis – aka Neville Longbottom – who poses for Attitude in a sexy 10-page shoot and tells us how he’s reveling in his newfound heartthrob status.
