83. May 10, 1965, the first great emotion of my life: the birth of Cristiana, my first baby girl!
I am back in Milan from Monte Carlo, two important appointments and then I run to the train station… still running I just manage to catch the train.
This is the part of my life that I do not like, run, run, be anxious with the fear of not arriving on time.
I am now sitting in the parlor of carriage number three. Can I relax, can I sleep for this hour and a half trip. I shall try…
For tonight I have organized a big dinner in my big house in Florence. IT IS CRISTIANA’S BIRTHDAY! I do like to play the patriarch, sit at the head of the table and watch, see, think and spend these precious moments with my five children and my seven grandchildren…
I’m dozing off with a smile… that little pink stork comes on… a jump on the chair… my mom… my friends hug me… IT’S A GIRL!
I remember those tears, those wonderful emotional tears of joy! My little Cristiana, she is wonderful!
It was a Caesarean, Cristiana had not suffered those typical birth stresses, she was perfect! Much black hair made her seem a big girl already!
How many dreams! She became my little model! Each photo was a moment to remember…
