I was waiting for them to ask me to perform… In high school I had a teacher with a flaw and I imitated her. Everyone laughed. In short, I was a clown with a suit. Then I started playing because everyone in my family He was inclined to music. There was one uncle in particular who played the flute and the saxophone very well.

Like those who envy Berlusconi or President of the United States or billionaires and know nothing of what it means to face paths of this kind…So life is also luck, not just a skill. I don’t regret my emotional path which would be easier to deal with today. I’ve dealt with two special women. I’m not the special one , It is important “.

I didn’t win, but I lost another 50 million and made my situation worse. While driving my Jaguar, I thought of my situation as… Rich in debt. So I parked in the little hard shoulder of the bridge with the idea of ending it all. I was shocked, I couldn’t find a way out. “It was night between Saturday and Sunday and the trucks were parked. All but one: the one who touched me to a millimeter. The explosion moved the car a few centimeters and brought me back to logic.”
Any plans after the tour?
I have decided to put my TV appearance on hold. I find myself very little into this TV. Lots of people go there to show off and say nonsense. The cannibal has become, an end in itself, a self-referential one. If she appears on TV, I must have something exciting to say. What TV pays doesn’t change my life. I am not interested in increasing my popularity. These theaters with legendary artists like Bobby Solo or Fausto Leali are only good for the program and few and nothing for those who participate.

Looking at the results, I would say that Umberto was good.

I, he, our accountant Oliviero Franceschi and Gianmarco Mazzi were in a partnership. A company that ran my business and this day belongs entirely to me.”

“Seeing the end result, I would have done it all over again. Suffering and mistakes included. At twenty-five I was a billionaire. A few years later I owed $7 billion. Gambling, bad investments. I found myself in a hiccup. I’m here to say it, but it was a miracle. Does not repeat “.
Relationships with girls?
“Beautiful. How much love I get from my family! Hence the daughters and the stepdaughter have a wonderful relationship with each other.
