How was the meeting? “He was my brother’s friendtwo bachelors who shared a pied-à-terre. Listen, why don’t you tell Claudio to come to me?. I go. He hadn’t created Milano 2, he hadn’t done great things yet. He had a villa in Via Rovani, beautiful, his headquarters. There was an echo in the meeting room, it was half the size of Piazza del Duomo. He gave you the image of someone who clearly understood what he wanted to do. We weren’t prepared, he was.
