One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am.
I’d be happy to be back in the places I lived in before the exile. I’d bee happy to see Rome, Naples, Florence again; to visit my old florentine college, Naples’s alleyways, crowded with women and children, the Piazza Navona I used to love so much, the Appia Antica. I’d disguise to see Italy once again, I’d do my hair differently, dye it.
