When i was a kid.. maybe 7-8 years old, my father bought me -or i forced him to buy me- a Ferrari 288 GTO toy..
Of course i knew nothing about cars and surely i couldn't assembly the one my dad bought me.
so when we got home i unpacked the kit/package which had the italian flag on it, my father assembled the car and i was a happy owner of a Ferrari toy.
Next year or the year after that, there was the 1994 World Cup going on. i remember i was blackmailing my sister to beat her if she didnt stay awake with me until the end of the final. i was supporting Italy because Ferrari was Italian..
In 1997 i was supporting Juventus in the Champions League because it was Italian..
After that it was all falling together.
After some years when i started watching some Formula 1 i was of course with Ferrari, due to that Red toy i had..
On every World Cup i am supporting Italy.
Every year i wish Juve wins the Campionato.
And that red toy eventually got me here. In the Italian/Alfa world.
so yes.. a bit of guidance wont hurt
