right. To answer your question, it looks like a reular four-in hand knot.
Fabio is a common name in Italy, much like Paul or John in English speaking countries, so I'm not sure what that reference is meant to imply about someone just from their name?
I read that guy's blog and if I have understood his aesthetic correctly, the tie here is probably meant to symbolise "sprezzatura" (something along the lines of being stylish and wearing good stuff, but conveying an air of non-chalance "i don't spend an awful lot of time on my outfits so sometimes I make mistakes with tie-knots).
Sprrzzatura has become a little bit forced since all of these tumblr blogs with everyone trying to out-Sprezzatura each other, but in my eyes its also a welcome reaction to the Mad Men style a lot of guys go for, where everything is super-starched, ironed and with perfect knot and tie clip for tie.
P.S. its a Four In Hand.
