«My friend where are you, sometimes I think “no it’s not true Luca come on come out I’m here don’t joke, now enough the joke is nice if it doesn’t last long. Then instead I fall into a deep melancholy because I realize that I will not see you anymore, I will not hear from you anymore, I will not hug you anymore. In a few days you would have turned 60, and even this seems strange to me Luca you know?!?!? Because I have in my mind the image of your face in our fantastic years, young, smiling, ironic, intelligent and sweet. I miss you????? Yes to death, not a day goes by where I don’t think of you. Not a day goes by where I think but fuck why, Why».

“I read your book, you made me laugh, it’s really you, I would like to go back to relive everything with more attention just like you say. There’s no time, there’s no time!!!! I remember when you called me to tell me that Trap would call me because he wanted to ask me if I wanted to return to Juve!! Who knows how it would have ended if Boniperti had then satisfied him. We would have been together for more years and who knows what we would have done!!”.

«I want to tell you something; the training project for future talents and that we should have done together I called I HAVE A DREAM, To be n.9 precisely in your honor. The 9 perfect like you were….Here I feel happy when I talk or write about you and it’s as if you were listening to me ready to tell me “come on Ivan don’t talk stupid and down with a laugh!!!!! Best wishes in advance my friend wherever you are. On July 9th your ears will be ringing because of how many thousands and thousands of people will send you BEST WISHES UP THERE!! Bye Bomber”.
