Gianluca Vialli discovered he had a tumor and since then his life has totally changed. Through the transmission conducted by Alessandro Cattelan "A simple question" broadcast on Netflix, he revealed his relationship with his family and his daughters, once he discovered the disease: "I am convinced that our children follow our example more than our words.
I have less time to be an example, now that I know that I will not die of old age. My every behavior leads me to think like this. " "In this sense I try to be a positive example: I try to teach them that happiness depends on the perspective with which you look at life, that you don't have to put on airs, listen more and talk less.
Laugh often, help others. This is the secret of happiness " "I feel I have less time to be a good father and be an example for them - he confides - but I also realize that on their part there is the fear of losing me and therefore the desire to show me how much they love me" Vialli concluded with emotion, who gave a great life lesson to the world with his words.
