An excerpt from Janis Rahner Black: Last night, Gianluca was in Pineto for the inauguration of the Notte Bianca dello Sport, dedicated to the memory of little Marco Calabretta. He was awarded this White Night of Sport Award as the guy who shines of everything Abruzzo! source: original Facebook post
Marco died in September after a soccer practice due to a heart malformation at the age of nine, prompting an investigation into the physician that medically cleared him for activity. More than two thousand people attended his funeral. It was proclaimed a day of mourning, the Pineto did not play, and the Feast of St. Hilary was suspended.
As previously mentioned by Lydka, the third edition of the Notte Bianca dello Sport and Sport Paralympic opened on July 23 and was attended not only by Gianluca, but by civil and military authorities as well.

Our beautiful Gianluca!! Wonderful that he received this honor! So happy for him!! We all agree on that we love the curls!!
Oh come on…there’s better looking guys. We just haven’t found them yet.
Marie Crider, I can’t believe you said that!lol. At first I thought maybe you are right, but then I looked at their pictures again and realized you must need a new pair of glasses! How lucky are we, to have found the nicest, best looking Guy’s in the world, and they can sing too!
Marie, Mother Teresa said : ” Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless. ” Shannon L. Alder about beauty said:“In the end, you will not see the physical beauty in others that caught your eye, but the fire that burned within them. This kind of beauty is the bonfire you had to attend.” “Hide yourself in God, so when a man wants to find you he will have to go there first.” “Beauty is not who you are on the outside, it is the wisdom and time you gave away to save another struggling soul like you.” Edmond Mbiaka said:
“Outer beauty is like a decade; it doesn’t last forever. While inner beauty stays permanent like an ocean. By all means, hold strong to your inner beauty.” Imania Margria said: “We need to find the light within ourselves, so we can see our true worth.” “Let the beauty radiates from inside your heart to the outside world.”“Brilliance some are born with it, but others create it over time. It lightens the foulest of hearts and pierces the darkest of nights to lead us on the right path of our future destinies.” Luffina Lourduraj said : “Beauty without a character is a waste.” Debasish Mridha said: “Only you can see true beauty when you focus your beautiful light on things.” “True beauty doesn’t shine; it attracts.” I think they are inspirational thoughts. 🙂 Sometimes it’s nice to start the day like this… By the way, you know today is hard to find good-looking men, who are beautiful inside. Have a nice day ! 🙂
So happy that they appreciate how much he does for Abruzzo and how much he loves his home, Love the curls also!
