Del Piero remembers the story behind the picture of himself, his now wife Sonia and Zidane…
“Night. Milan-Turin motorway. Deserted Autogrill. Zizou, Sonia and I are returning from Milan after an event organised by Adidas. We ran away without eating to get home earlier. But hunger is hunger! We stop. There is nobody inside, only the cashier and the lady from the bar.
The usual look at the counter, meat and cheese sandwich, camogli, fattoria. In the end the choice falls on a slice of margherita pizza, those ones that remain at the end of the night with crusts like chewing gum. But as I said hunger is hunger; look at Zizou! I was faster, the cardboard plate is already crumpled on the table next to the car keys while the lady behind the counter is making the coffee, indifferent. My teammate is focused on the pizza, but I already have other interests…
‘Click’ The camera that Gianni Giansanti always wore around his neck, without us noticing, captures the moment.
This is one of the photos I care about the most. Inside there is almost everything: love, friendship, simplicity, normality, lightheartedness, tenderness, the desire to be together, feeling lucky, full of life.”
