And then, during chemo, I caught Covid for the third time. And I developed severe lung inflammation. These things here change your life. Yours and those around you. I felt lost, I was afraid I'd never get on stage again. My wife Monica was fundamental. I have never given up. Before and after surgery, during therapies, which are not a walk in the park. Until it happens to you, cancer seems like a distant problem. Then everything is reset in the head: values, priorities, the things that matter. And even when you heal, the trauma stays with you.'

EVIL PUSHES US TO BE LESS SUPERFICIAL – However, the author of “Gloria” also manages to grasp the positive side of the bad period that seems to have ended: «I thought I was weak, I discovered I had courage.

But hard times also serve to strengthen emotional ties, and Umberto Tozzi knows this well: at the top of his thoughts, once again, is his wife Monica, who has been by his side for 36 years: «The I have married four times, in common, in church, in Mauritius and in Montecarlo. If I could, I would marry her even a fifth time.'
