ANECDOTES AND CURIOSITIES
"Among your teammates at Napoli you had Carmelo Imbriani, what is your memory of him?
"We did a lot together but these are things you don't tell because of the sacredness of the locker room. With Imbriani we were a steady couple and when we did double training or afternoon sessions, he would stay over instead of going back to Benevento.
Once we tried to make pasta with four cheeses... that happened. I had recently arrived in Naples and we were getting by on cooking, we had to drain the pasta and we didn't know how to take the pan from the fire, so we both took it with paper towels, but they caught fire from underneath. With the flames so high we left the pot and everything fell out, unbelievable, we practically threw everything we had prepared not to mention that the kitchen was a crazy mess and we had nothing left to eat. I remember Carmelo who, with a stunned look on his face, brought out all his Neapolitan side and said to me: '"e mo' che faccimme?"', I replied: '"let's order pizza down here otherwise we won't eat'". I think of this scene and I still laugh. This is how Arturo Di Napoli remembers Carmelo Imbriani. Source: Napolisoccer.net"
