Fedez was also moved when Fazio showed the image of Gianluca Vialli:

I see him and I want to cry, it’s surreal because I’ve never seen him in person.”

When I discovered I had pancreatic cancer, the only interview I found regarding this topic was that of Gianluca Vialli. I was very lucky to have some acquaintances in common and the evening before I was hospitalized we spoke on the phone for many hours. It’s incredible how a person, who was experiencing a tragedy, took the time to give comfort to a person he didn’t know at all. This says a lot about who Gianluca was on a human level.”
