Describe your perfect day
Gym followed by a healthy breakfast, followed by a walk on the beach (preferably accompanied by a dog, as well as people!), fish lunch overlooking the sea, relaxing afternoon reading (preferably on the beach), delicious dinner with red wine, overlooking the sea. A perfect day needs to involve delicious food (and red wine)

Best book ever read?
Difficult question because I’ve read so many, but one which I’ve read several times over the years is The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco. It was his debut novel and of course since then Eco has become very popular and famous. The historical setting along with the detective storyline is perfect for me

Back in time to when my Italian ancestors were alive, obviously to Italy, to talk to them and find out more about them

What is your greatest fear?
Not seeing my children and grandchildren grow up healthily

What would you say to your 18-year-old self?

Gather my family together and eat a delicious meal … with red wine of course
