Text Box: “Play my sweet guitar. Play as I remember
the days of my youth. Play guitar, play as I remember 
those early mornings, envisioning you now, 
next to the Nativity scene of baby Jesus 
with your friends as you played and sang. 
And you, my darling, placed your loving eyes, 
your heart and your affection on me. I did not return 
your glances. Now, I am weeping.”



So began the love story of Giuseppi and Fortunata as told by diary entries and letters secreted away and cherished through a lifetime. A blue box, a red ribbon and  a love so strong it could not be denied weave a compelling story of faith and perseverance.
