A love af­fair

Glamour (South Africa) - - Style / Icon -

Sal­va­tore be­gan work­ing as a teen, and ran his own busi­ness by 15. By 22, he had moved coun­tries, set up shop and con­nected with stars on film sets. But at 42, he re­alised he had ne­glected an im­por­tant part of life: love. His search for a wife in­volved the de­ter­mi­na­tion and pas­sion he ap­plied to his busi­ness. He trav­elled widely and met many prospec­tive part­ners. None were suc­cess­ful. Un­til the day he vis­ited his home town and met Wanda, 22 years his ju­nior, and the in­spi­ra­tion for love at first sight. The cou­ple went on to have six chil­dren, and Wanda con­tin­ued to run the busi­ness af­ter his death, main­tain­ing his in­tegrity and iden­tity. Now 96, she never re­mar­ried.
