Livio Monari Today!
Even today after more than 40 years Livio Monari continues to be as a reference point for many Elvis' fans from different generations. It is thanks to him that the first Italian fan club was born in 1962, living until 1986.
Livio is one of those rare people who always looked at Elvis with intelligence, love and respect. We from www.onenightwithelvis.it have known Livio for more than 20 years and we are honoured announcing that he accepted to write interesting topics for us.
In 1962 I founded the first Elvis Presley Fan Club in Italy. Obviously my greatest wish at the time was to see Elvis in person and this happened in August 1972. In the 70�s it was not very common for a young Italian to make a trip to America, but together with Nicla, a personal friend and member of my Fan Club, we started following that dream.
With our personal money we bought a special gift for Elvis: a very nice award made as a silver cup, with a plate at the bottom that read �TO ELVIS FROM HIS ITALIAN FANS�. This cup is actually at Graceland in the awards room to this day....
