Rossi met Anna Petrucelli one sweltering summer afternoon in Venice.
Hard at work in his family's bakery, the 18-year-old young man almost

Anna continued toward the door. "Buongiorno!" he called even louder. Still, the young woman did not acknowledge him... (click here to find out the rather shocking way he was finally able to get her attention!)
