1,061 km to make a dream come true. 20 May 2017, the tenth anniversary of the Athens Champions League triumph was being celebrated at Casa Milan. I had gone with my father and was eager to lift the trophy to the sky just as Kaká had done. The Club had decided to allow fans to touch and take photos with the Cup. "How do you want to take the photo?" The guard asked me. "Like Kaká!" I replied. I can't describe how wonderful it felt to lift the most beautiful trophy in the world! Thank you, AC Milan!

What a rare and exceptional moment, getting to lift that trophy, coming into contact with the symbol of the 2007 Rossonero success. Just as AC Milan did, you travelled a long way to make a dream come true. Congratulations, Rosario!
