Don't fear for us, our life will be wonderful

Gianluigi Rho and Mirella Capra marry to Milan in the early seventies. He is gynecologist, she is pediatrician. You have just graduated, they have just over twenty years. They draw a very special wedding list: instead of silverware and services of dishes and glasses, they ask for operating room equipment for a maternity department that does not yet exist but that they will help create and to grow in years of hard but joyful work. Mirella, on July 15, 1970, after the first visit to the hospital under construction, writes a letter at home where, after highlighting a long list of problems, it concludes: "Do not fear for us, our life will be wonderful". Mario Calabresi knows this story since he is a child: Gigi and Mirella are the uncles of him. Today he has chosen to tell her, because it is necessary to try to respond to doubts, skepticism, the discouragement of so many guys who wonder if it is still worth growing dreams. That of Gigi and Mirella, but also that of Elijah and his lamps that every night takes off from the port of Genoa or the Aldo's port that puts back the blades of the abandoned mill of his family, are the stories of young people of yesterday and today that they have been able to look forward to courage. They are stories of Italian boys who were not afraid to become great.
