In Italy, a best friend is known as a ‘heart friend’ and my amico del cuore is called Giorgio Moro. Although this is not top secret information, I do have some qualms about using his full name in this article. Any writer will tell you that it is inadvisable to tie a character so closely to a real person but in Giorgio Moro’s case, I can’t help it. There are two reasons for this. First, as my best friend, I feel the need to differentiate him from all the other Giorgios in the world. The second reason is that we grew up together. His mother would use his first and last name whenever he was in trouble and Giorgio Moro is still in trouble often.
