    But Faiella is not a competitive athlete any more so won't she actually have to work for her wages now?

    The answer to the first question is yes; to the second is yes, that's why she is taking courses in the fiamme oro.

    Thanks so much for the interview. I really enjoyed reading it. He sounds very down to earth and very dedicated to his skaters. Wishing him all the best.

    YEs it works like in Germany.
    Anna and Luca too are supported by Fiamme Oro.

    Federica decided to stay in the Police, as all, she could have left when she retired. It was her decision.
    But she is working also as coach, with kids.
