Hot Stuff: Meet The Many Different Facets Of Matteo Guidicelli In StarStudio's September Issue



In the September issue of StarStudio magazine, Matteo Guidicelli shares tidbits about his family, career, and his passions, which include participating in triathlons and managing their family restaurant in Cebu. Here are a few excerpts:


1. On his love for kart racing: “At some point, I started racing all the time. I got addicted to it. We formed a team of 20 people... [and] the goal was to be the first Pinoy Formula 1 racer.” (He's a three-time recipient Karter of the Year award, by the way)


2. On his relationship with his sister (who manages their family restaurant): “Giorgia (Matteo’s younger sister) and I would always fight, but we love each other. Ngayon naman, mature level na ‘yung relationship namin.”


3. On being emotional following the death of his dog Alfano:Sobrang baby ko ‘yan. Iyak ako ng iyak, first time ko naramdaman yun at tumawag ako kay Sarah [Geronimo, his girlfriend], kay Papa (Gianluca Guidicelli).”


4. On discovering his love for triathlons:Sabi ko hindi biro itong triathlon na ito. Kailangan talaga ng ensayo.”


5. On learning new things about himself: “When I was 20 years old and I am 26 now, I am a different person, I am still the same but the way I think is different.”


6. On his learning when it comes to being where he is right now: “What is important is to be consistent in doing what you love to do. And you never stop.”
