Virginia Castagnettiwho is the daughter of Alberto, my former coach (who passed away in 2009, ed) and is an opera singer.

In a practical sense, it is us, it has always been us, we just wanted to stop the moment, put a mark on this beautiful love story. And we wanted to make our friends participate. Today is like yesterday, we wake up, look into each other’s eyes and exchange a smile.

I was lucky enough to finish my career when I had nothing left to give to sport, and then this Covid, these breaks, this run-up to the Tokyo Olympics… It was a tiring journey. And that effort if I close my eyes I see it. Now I wouldn’t be as hungry and, luckily, I have other plans.
