Gianni Morandi and Anna Dan, the son, the photos and 26 years of love: the love story
That Gianni Morandi had a big heart was already known, but it is always good – especially in this period – to witness acts of solidarity, carried out with simplicity. And perhaps this is why the news of the singer who visits the Popular Kitchens of Bologna to make himself available to people in need has made the rounds of websites and news.
“We're here and we're happy to be able to help, but we're not doing anything heroic. We are pleased to be here, "Morandi told the local TV broadcaster – Rete 7.
Gianni responded willingly to the invitation of Roberto Morgantini, a philanthropist who started the soup kitchen with the money raised for his wedding list. With a face mask and white gloves, the singer immediately got to work distributing takeaway meals to people in need for Christmas.
A Christmas that will be different from the others, more subdued for everyone. But that even more should bring us closer to the true values of this holiday and therefore remind us how important it is to think of others, especially the less fortunate people.
"We are trying to be a little close to these people who are truly alone. This year even more, "added the singer during the interview, also focusing on the sacrifices that we are all called to make.
In the face of the common good, however, every recrimination should be put aside, as well as sterile polemics. All the more reason in these times it is important to remain united, in a metaphorical and spiritual sense, in order to emerge from the pandemic as a people and not as individuals.
And never mind if for once you have to give up the numerous tables, games and hugs.
“The first thing to do is fight Covid. It will be a different Christmas in which you will not be able to reunite with family members and will stay at a distance, but that's okay. Baby Jesus will forgive us. We will have other moments to be all together ”, added Gianni Morandi, not hiding a certain melancholy, but with absolute decision.
The singer, who just a few days ago turned 76, will spend these holidays like all Italians, at home and with his family. Waiting for better times and new occasions to celebrate.
