I wonder if Charlotte has any memories of her father.
I'm guessing that Andrea may have a few and Pierre none.

Lashinka i was wondering the same...i think that Char had only one, she was soo little, and Pierre none...poor children

I was wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on what i am about to write as I don't know how accurate it is.A number of years ago I read an article about Stephano( I think I might have read it in Point de Vue) and it said that he was somehow involved with organized crime ,as in he owed them money or something,and that after he died in the boating accident and the day after his coffin was buried it had been removed and placed standing up in the grave and this apparently was a symbol from the members of organized crime that he owed them something.I know this sounds horrible and I was shocked at the time, can anyone clarrify this for me please.

Somewhere in this forum I read posts made by members who were also familiar with that story, mentioning that mafia fact. Try to look at Stefano Casiraghi Thread, Part I.

violation of the grave....it's very sad,but above all horrible,
definitely horrible!!!!!!!!!!:mad: :mad: :mad:

marlene 07-11-2005 11:02 PM

Dear Everyone,
Thanks for clearing that up for me.I wil go to the first oart of the thread as you suggested

Tosca 07-12-2005 10:00 AM

My husband often goes to Fino Mornasco for work, where Stefano grew up and his family still own a house called "Villa delle Cicogne", and I went there a couple of times.

There the Casiraghis are highly esteemed by their fellow villagers for being hardworking people. Stefano's father was a primary school teacher before becoming a businessman. Stefano's Mom lost her parents in an accident when she was very young, so she went to live with her aunt and uncle who owned a factory in Milan, that she inherited when her aunt and uncle died. She also had to cope with the Nazis that wanted the plant to be closed during the past war.

Do you think that such a family would let themselves get involved in the crime?
Remember that here up North work is a religion. I know that you foreigners tend to view our country as a whole, but things are different. The mafia is a typical phenomenon of the Italian South. I don't mean to blame the Italian Southerners by saying this. I know lots of decent people down there, as I lived there for some time. I mean that like in any other country, there are many cultural differences among the various Italian regions. So stop reading books by Mario Puzo, and start to read books by Leonardo Sciascia ( a Sicilian brave journalist and writer who was shot by the mafia ) instead, if you get the chance to find them where you live.

Hugs and kisses!

Thanks for the info Tosca,where inItaly do you live?I have been many times and am in love with the country,the food ,the wine ,the art etc, you are very lucky to have such a special heritage.

Tosca 07-12-2005 11:17 AM

Thanks for the compliments marlene! I live in a small town near Parma ( the home of the original Parmesan cheese and Parma ham, not to mention the composer Verdi and the conductor Toscanini). However I was born in Southern Tuscany not far from Siena. My Mom's was also born there, while my Dad was originally from the Venice area. Yes, I'm very proud of my heterogeneous heritage.:D :D :D

Love.

stefano casiraghi
 
i notice in some of the pictures with stefano casiraghi he is not smilling. is it part of the italian culture where men don't smile in photos? it just looks strange when everybody in the photo is smilling except him.

I think it's more a question of personality than of culture. I once read an
interview Stefano gave to HELLO in which Stefano admitted to feel shy
in the spotlight with all that cameras and people around him. That may
be a reason..

Jackswife 09-23-2005 05:52 PM

I think Stefano was not really interested in making the royal "scene" and preferred home life with Caroline and pursuing his business/sports interests to any media exposure. The Grimaldis were used to public attention from early ages, Stefano was not, and that may also be a factor.

Tosca 09-24-2005 04:41 AM

is it part of the italian culture where men don't smile in photos?

Absolutely not. Italian men are like any other man elsewhere!:D I wish they would laugh and talk lesser instead!:D
Stefano was simply a shy guy

Piewi 10-03-2005 01:01 PM

I was wondering, if i am not wrong of course, Stefano didnīt died fifteen years ago? On the 3rd Octuber of 1990???
I canīt believe,15 years...may he rest in peace

BTW is there a memorial service today?In 2000 there was one
