I GROW UP WITHOUT A FATHER - Crisitana released the single She’s mine and in the book Recognized he told his story. At the weekly Spend now she says: “When I was born it wasn't there, I couldn't miss something I've never experienced. I don't remember anything from that period. Then when I grew up I wished I had a dad too. I call him Gianni, I remember our first meeting, his purple robe with embroidery. Then around the age of ten, hearing my mom sing her songs and hearing her talk to her sister on the phone, I understood who dad was ”.

THE SURNAME IN THE HEART - Once, he recalls, he would have liked to participate in some evenings under the name of Cristiana Ranieri, but his father's lawyers would have prevented him. However “today I recognized myself as an artist, I don't need to use my father's name, because Massimo Ranieri is just him, I am another person. Now I have his surname in my heart, I don't need it on stage ”. And she cannot forget when her father introduced her to the world as her daughter, on TV: “Evidently for him it was the right time, for me it matters what she did. He has always been a reserved man who, on that occasion, made an important gesture, putting himself on the line like he had never done before. He invited me to see the program without anticipating me, who then, at a certain point, would have said: 'I introduce you to my daughter'. Even today I can't find the words to describe that emotion. Until 2007 I was the daughter of Giovanni Calone only on my identity card, then I became one in all respects'. And she adds: “I never gave a damn about money, I certainly didn't lead the life of daddy's daughter. I've had a hard time, I've done everything from waitress to cubist, from cleaning lady to secretary. I have never asked for anything, I don't beg for help, I only ask God and Pope John Paul II'. In 2015 Cristiana lost her mother to cancer. The father was not there: 'he made a different choice, he lived his pain in a confidential way'.Source: oggi.it
