The words of Gina Lollobrigida’s nephew
In an interview with journalist Domenico Marocchi, after the last statement from 2016, Dimitri wanted to talk about Gina Lollobrigida, whom he affectionately called “Gi” and who he also recently learned to call grandmother: “I used to call her ‘Gi’ why did she want me to call her what I’ve always been used to. Now I’m calling her grandmother internally as well.”
Dimitri was close to his grandmother after a long distance in the last months of his life. With a voice almost breaking with emotion, he confessed that he felt her closer to him now that she was gone: “I’ve been with her for the last few months, unfortunately I would have liked to have seen her at other times too. I know It seems strange but after a long time I felt very close to her which is absurd because she just left. I feel like a nephew.”
