Francesca & Emili
We guess it was that charming moustache which made Francesca fall for him.
Emili’s reasons, however, we know them for sure, but we will talk about them later on when we write a post about the words in his well perserved diary.
Francesca was quite older than him and besides she was the boss. Emili was a shop assistant and was deeply in love with her. Their wedding was full of smiles and hats and it is thanks to them that we are now here.
We thought it was pretty fair to dedicate them this souvenir.
