The family had no idea that little Luigi would grow up to be such a successful businessman.

At school he was regularly taunted: “Mamma Mia itsa Luigi!”
But he never rose to the bait and bided his time patiently.
His revenge came much later as a trader.
“Imma gonna make you an offer you canna refuse!” he would say with his mock Italian accent.
