(the post published by Francesco Totti on Instagram on March 19, for Father’s Day)
Roman and above all Romanist, a brilliant sense of humor, an ability to smile at everything. And, perhaps, the secret of the son’s success. Francesco Totti never made a mystery of it, when he told of when, as a child, after dazzling performances he sought his father’s approval when he was told “your brother is better than you”. He knew, Enzo, that only in this way would he push that blond with boundless talent to overcome himself day by day, to move the bar higher, not to be satisfied with what already – everyone knew it in Rome – was very good for him.
“Hello Enzo”, the condolences on social networks for the death of Francesco Totti’s father
Two children, a wife – Mrs. Fiorella – the holidays in Torvajanica, the first ball given to little Francesco when he was two years old, a Mikasa with black pentagons and white hexagons, the legendary apartment in via Vetulonia, near where today Francesco is honored with a large mural an entire building, the work in the bank. Passing on to his sons Francesco and Riccardo the love for the family and for the football. Always without ever taking the stage: “We stay behind the scenes, but if Francesco needs us we are always there”. A lesson, in the glossy world of football, for many parents.
