At just 40 days old, the woman who brought him to life was forced to give him to the family that raised him and educated him.
It is the family of Konstantinos Savvas who is no longer alive and of Maria Louisa Vesia, of Italian origin. The meeting with the biological mother took place in April 1980 in Eleftheroupoli, Kavala. According to what his stepmother remembers, his biological mother had a Turkish name, she was around 26, petite, brown-blonde and at that time she worked on tobacco estates. The biological father was the owner of these estates. According to this testimony, the biological mother had given another child for adoption to a family in Samothrace. In fact, she had left a handwritten note with her name on it, but shortly thereafter, Paolo’s stepfather destroyed it.
If his mother is alive, she will be about 66 years old today.
