I looked to Pier Giorgio at a difficult point in my life. I was in college and trying to find my identity and find my way in life. I mean that figuratively and literally. One day, I found myself lost in the woods by myself (in the rain, of course). While considering giving up or turning back, I heard the words "Verso l'Alto" come into my head. With Pier Giorgio's encouragement, I didn't give up. I climbed the hill in front of me, wandered through woods and deserted roads, and eventually found my way to the next town. Ever since, I continued looking to Pier Giorgio for guidance and support, and he has been such all inspiration to me. My wife is now pregnant with our first child and, if God gives us a boy, we will name him Giorgio!
