The 78-year-old presenter takes stock of his life. He says he is satisfied and his indispensable bond with Maria whom he married back in 1995
Maurizio Costanzo and Maria De Filippi, a love lasting more than 20 years
Maurizio Costanzo takes stock of his life, entrusting his thoughts on his career and marriage to Maria De Filippi to the pages of Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni. At 78, the journalist says he is satisfied with having arrived here in good health. But he can't stop:
Boredom is a constant, together with melancholy.
Of his wife he reveals:
I trust her. Despite the demographic distance, I think that between me and you was a happy meeting … We joke, we relax. My son Gabriele and I (adopted in 2004, ed.) Have dinner together and wait for her, because Maria is almost always late. Once upon a time, she was waiting for me.
Maria, with whom she has been married since 1995, is indispensable for him. For the future, the two made a promise:
Wherever she is, she knows that on her deathbed I want to shake her hand.
Costanzo then confirms that he helped Maria, made her do TV and recommended her, because he believed in her.
