Meet the Zampettis

Dogs, much like their human companions, come in all shapes and sizes. In Savelletri/Fasano, we had the pleasure of crossing paths with Francesca Pianigiani Di Bella, 69, and her husband Stefano Di Bella, who were enjoying a peaceful lunch in each other’s company alongside their well behaved Chihuahuas Mario and Claretta. Stefano introduced us to their furry cupids, while Francesca, a sports medicine professional with a clinic in Rome, shared about their family dynamics. Amidst their two human children and five grandchildren, it’s the duo of Mario and Claretta that steal the spotlight as their cherished companions.By the way: For those seeking all kinds of accessories for their furry friends, Stefano, asa Mr. Joe Zampetti, is the ultimate resource for all things pet-related, from gourmet treats to trendy toys. On this particular day, Stefano even wore his JZ hoodie against the lingering spring chill
