INTERVIEW WITH ROBERTA BELLESINI
Piedmontese and devoted to architecture, Roberta Bellesini is a reserved woman, perhaps less known than her famous husband (Giorgio Faletti). He had confessed her his fear of oblivion.
She, in response, keeps him alive in her memories and in those of her fans, with the pride and tenderness that distinguish her. She doesn’t only promote his works, but she continues to cultivate and hand down that passion for art and literature that had united them so much.
We wanted to know more and be inspired by her words.
