I had the opportunity to call Gianni Lancia by telephone, few months ago.
Gianni is absolutely retired of any way of life not strictly private. He had refused a lot of interwiews, photos, etc and did not take part in centennial celebrations. He drives a BMW, and frequently makes some trips to Italy (included Fobello). Since living Lancia & C to Pesenti, his business interests are in real state. His health seems good and very strong.
He was very kind with me, but was also very clear refusing any type of contact. He told me: "Se li dico "si" a Lei, devo dir "sí" a tanti, e sonno ritirato de tutta vita che non sia la mia strittamente privata. Comunque, grazie, etc..."
Then, our Club (Club Lancista Spagnolo) sent by post a gastronomic pack with some very good spanish products (food and wine).
Of course that was a good idea: two weeks later we received a wonderful letter of aknowlegment, signed Vincenzo Lancia (Gianni's son). He tell us how they enjoyed that present!!! ("gradito e gustato").
I am one of the few persons, no relatives, that has heard Gianni Lancia's voice, and makes me very happy.
