Francesca Sofia Novello she is tired of being called into question only as Valentino Rossi. The model told it in a long interview with Grazia’s microphones: “Vale will be at the Moto GP test in Malaysia. And I’m so happy. If he came to Sanremo, all eyes would be on him, instead it is my time and it is right that I live it to the full. If the country wants to think that I am beautiful and stupid, at least let me speak first. I don’t care about the judgment of others. I know who I am, I know what head I have and I’m sorry to pass for who I am not ».
Why was it chosen for Sanremo? ‘Because I’m beautiful and I’m Vale’s girlfriend. But I am also something else. Before going to the press conference nobody asked me what I was doing.

And I try to react to negativity. I am so good that sometimes I become naive. I am not stupid, it is clear, but I do not recognize the opportunists. I have a lot to learn from my mother. She gives no advice, she says to me: “I would do so, but you see”. At that point I think better of it, before doing my own thing. The phrase I say to myself? “Franci, keep your feet on the ground.” Things can change overnight, I learned to ponder decisions. Alongside I have the example of Vale. After every difficult moment he always stood up with determination and with a smile. This makes him unique as a man and as a boyfriend ».
