Cinquanta Stelle: Fabrizio Ravanelli

Sometimes it only takes the slightest scent of something to whisk you back twenty years or so, to a place or an event that has left an indelible mark on your conscience, something so unforgettable it takes the merest hint of it to spark a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
