Does Tosca or anyone else know more about this friend of Stefano?

I also have another question. What happened with Stefano and the military stuff in 1980?

September 1982 ???

It means that they started when Pcs Grace was still alive???

I thouht that they married a few months only after they met, and they married on December 1983

During many many mothts after she lost her mother, Caroline was still dating Robertino, so they pretend this relation. I know that Robertino introduced Stefano to Caroline, but I thought it was after her mother's accident.

So are you sure it was in 1982, and not in 1983??

Thanks

^You might be right. My dates come from Stefano Casiraghi - Un Homme Libre
Here it says that Caroline met Stefano in March 1982 and they saw each other many times, with many friends, on Corsica, Sardinia, and in September 1982 the villa Cigogna.

Then in 1983, on 19 December the engagement was announced from the Palace. And they married in civil ceremony ten days later, in the Hall of Mirrors, before 23 guests followed by cocktails and lunch in the Throne Room.

I think Stefano and Caroline dated in 1982, not so seriously, then met again in mid 1983 and got together for good...that's what I've read.

Yes, I just reread the relevant part of the aforementioned biography. It quotes Stefano saying, at the time of the engagement/marriage, in December 1983 that he and Caroline had known each other the last two years.

As far as I remember, Caroline was still dating Rossellini when Grace died in 1982.
I don't know when Caroline and Stefano met, but I remember that on Marina Palma's boat they fell in love. It was Summer 1983.
That's why Marina Palma was Caroline's "matron of honor" at her wedding.
We saw the first pics of Caroline and Stefano that Summer.
Of course, as far as I remember.

Yeah, I lean towards believing Grace's idea. Perhaps when Caro first met Stefano she was attracted to him but still devoted to Robertino, who I gather was like her childhood sweetheart, her first real love or something, and then in time, seeing Stefano more and more, she fell in love with him. And maybe Stefano was afraid to commit for awhile because he is so shy and hated publicity, so he needed time to get used to the idea of being married to a princess.

Unfortunately I haven't anymore, but I assure you that Pinuccia Macheda was a gorgeous girl. She lived in Como, and when Stefano dumped her to marry Caroline, he bought her a furrier's shop in central Como. Afterwards she got married and gave birth to a pair of twins.

When Stefano died she wanted to attend his funeral, but Caroline banned her, despite Stefano's mother implored Caroline to let her. But in vain.

I wonder if his buying her a shop ignited the rumors of Stefano's infidelity with Caroline. Hey, rest assured, I am not saying I believe those rumors. But somehow some rumors picked up wind, and that scandal writer, what's her name, Anne Edwards, stated Stefano having a mistress like fact rather than rumor. I just wonder if this rumor had its root in the press finding out about him buying her the shop. What do you think, Tosca? And maybe when Caroline "banned" the woman from the funeral, the press talked more about it?? Just curious!

I know nothing about that writer, but it was Fernanda Casiraghi herself who told the Pinuccia story in an interview she gave to an Italian tabloid, but I can't recall which one.

If Stefano really had a mistress, the Italian press would have soon found her, like they found Ducruet's.

I didn't know that at all. Caroline was obviously very jealous of Pinuccia. I guess only because she had been Stefano's girlfriend for 7 years. But still...
Interesting info, Tosca.

No, what I was suggesting was that this story, however innocent as it probably was (just him buying a shop for an ex and good friend) might have fed fuel to the rumors in the press, and then the rumors gained more circulation in the tabloids when Caroline supposedly "banned" (was seen by the press to have "banned" her) from the funeral. But you do not think so? I am just curious for input on that possibility, or impossibility as it were.

In that kind of situation, anybody can be so 'selfish'.. her husband had a tragic accident, died immediately, the children still young.. what do you think, a woman would react? That is the time you just dont want to share your husband with anybody because you know he gonna leave you.... if you know what I mean

I just adore Stefano. He looks so decent and 'soft'.. and yet he's totally a brilliant businessman. I tried to find more pics of him especially at work.. found on web but cant make them in bigger scale

^ Yes, very true, mizzy. When a traumatic event occurs, a person can experience post-traumatic stress, right? It certainly seems that Caroline experienced something like PTS. She showed one of the classic signs, how she withdrew from public life for some years. She had to take time out, do the necessary grieving, before she could dust herself and move on.

^ Definitely, CasiraghiTrio

Here is the web that I just found out. Somebody might had posted it before.. but just to share. Some pics show him at work.. love it! I just hope that at least one of his children will follow his foot step or at least has his credibility...
