I met Elvis when I was little boy during his stay in Germany. I lived in Italy at the time, but my cousin and family had some relations of ours living in Germany, who were from Italy. my cousin Rogero was a big Elvis fan, me and Mom and Rogero took the train to Germany  where I first met Elvis at the Army post, that was my first experience There is more to my story.

On the 13th February, 1977,at the Sheraton Hotel, West Palm Beach, I presented a Plaque to Elvis, and to this day it is displayed at the Hotel along with other gifts.  Elvis rented the entire Hotel. It took a little while before I was able to give this gift to Elvis, because there were many Fans and Photographers, and I was determined to get this Plaque to Elvis, so I decided to knock on every room ext. downstairs and Bingo Joe answered the door, I did ask Joe if I could see Elvis, to give him this gift, but Joe said that it was not possible now because he was dressing for the Concert, but Joe said that he would give it to Elvis and thanked me.  However I still wasn’t happy because I wanted to make sure Elvis received it.  I called another Ext., and Sam Thompson, Elvis’ Bodyguard, said to me, were you the Guy who gave Elvis this gift, I said “yes I was”, and then Sam said that Elvis Like it very much and sent his best regards and thanks for your Friendship.  I was so happy he received it.

The years before when I visited Graceland, I became friends with Elvis’ family, Harold & Vaster, his Uncles, Aunt Loraine Smith, she adopted  me, … and still today I visit Graceland and Vernon ‘s home where it brings back memories of my visits back then and the friendship I had with the family……….
