Everyone has their own passions and talents. Fathers and mothers have the task of providing fertile ground for children to find their own way. Amos has a degree in piano performance, but he also studied spatial engineering, and this is the field in which he is working to build a career.
Although Amos has more of a scientific mind, in his recent past he faced some major musical challenges, including accompanying me on the piano at the 2013 Sanremo Music Festival, live on TV, in front of millions of viewers. At that exact time eighteen years previously, Amos was about to be born and I was singing on the same stage.
Amos Martellacci is one of the most important people to me: a master of life to whom I owe much of my knowledge, such as it is. He was from my home town and mentored me during my university studies with generosity and determination until I got my law degree. I named my firstborn son Amos after him.
