When all this stuff about the coronavirus came out, we had to take a decision. And I did it in 1 minute. Between any chance, I wanted to be with my daughter all the time, to try make it through together. No matter what. We cancelled the most part of the 2020 schedule starting by the Asian trips. We put it off the tv show, the exhibitions and many other things.
I know, I made a lot of people around me unhappy but any money in the world is worth it to risk our own lives. So, we are in a form of quarantine because we wanted to stay in Italy and we try our best.
You know what helped me a lot in the rough times in the last 25 years? When I was alone, traveling almost every day, working like crazy, I’ve always kept my own time going to Malibu every time I was back in LA, just because I needed to go there.
I needed the peace and the smell of that side of the ocean. I needed a walk on the beach to feel my feet in the sand. I also had a house there for a short time of my life and when I was back in LA I always asked my agents to book a house right on the beach.
So, even today, when we can’t even move in Italy, right today, I wish I’ll find my way to go for a walk in Malibu this evening and never leave this time. I’ll have my daughter on my shoulders and we’ll be the ones writing in the sand: I miss you Malibu, like never before.
