Sylvester Stallone’s Roots
Many Hollywood stars have an ancestral relationship with their roots, supported by respect and gratitude that are far from taken for granted. Sylvester Stallone, like many of his Italian-origin colleagues such as Robert De Niro and Madonna, is no exception, and that is why he proudly accepted the honorary citizenship of the city where his father Frank is from: Gioia del Colle, in Puglia.
Secret Meeting at the Town Hall
Sylvester Stallone and his brother Frank Jr. went to Italy in secret to attend a closed meeting at the Town Hall, although things did not go as planned.
Overwhelming Reception from the Crowd
Driven by curiosity and the desire to see the city up close, Sylvester Stallone decided to take a tour of the historic center, and was literally overwhelmed by the crowd. His films, from Rambo to Rocky, have not aged a day, and that is why everyone was at Sylvester Stallone’s court: adults who grew up when he was at the peak of his career and young people born in the sign of his legend. Sylvester Stallone stopped with everyone, once again showing that humanity and availability that, in this world where we always think more of ourselves, are becoming increasingly rare.
