Gennaro Gattuso opens up fish shop in Gallarate

[Wednesday, January 20, 2010 ]

Gennaro Gattuso has fulfilled his dream of opening a fish shop in Gallarate, a city in the province of Varese where the AC Milan midfielder has been living for the past eight years.

The Monday event itself became a social act thanks to the presence of team-mates David Beckham and Ronaldinho.

According to the Italian press, the inauguration was attended by about 5,000 people who crammed in the vicinity of the shop to capture a photo or get an autograph from the stars who attended the event.

Measuring approximately 800 square meters, the Gattuso & Bianchi, named also after his friend confectioner Andrea Bianchi, is located in Via Bettolino 17 at the center of Gallarate.

"Someone might even smile at it, but this fish store is a dream come true for me," said Gattuso, who came from the southern region of Calabria.

"I wanted to become a fisherman when I was a child, but life’s events have later driven me in different directions."
