Thanks to the Facebook page called In the wake of Piedone, we found a real treasure! A childhood photo of the legendary Italian slapper Bud Spencer was shared, showing little Carlo in his father’s arms, while his newborn sister, Vera, is snuggling on the right. Here is the picture that will brighten the day of any Bud Spencer fan:

By the way, Bud Spencer was born as the son of Alessandro Pedersoli and Rosa Facchetti in the Santa Lucia district of Naples. At that time, his father had an iron factory in the port of Naples, but when a ship anchored in front of the factory exploded in an accident, the iron factory was destroyed. He became a member of the local swimming club at the age of eight, from where he moved to Rome when the family moved to the capital in 1943.

His academic results were quite outstanding, he was first at the age of five, then he skipped the fifth grade and entered a six-grade high school. He then attended the chemistry faculty of the University of Rome (he became a student at the university when he was only 16 years old), but he had to interrupt his studies because the family left Italy in 1947 and moved to Brazil. He returned home a year and a half later (at the end of 1948), while his family returned home in 1950. He continued at the university, although not in chemical engineering, but in law, as well as sports. In 1949, he won the Italian breaststroke title, and in 1950, he became the champion of the 100-meter freestyle with a time of less than one minute. Even this year, he achieved 4th place at the European Championship with the Italian water polo team. After signing his first Hollywood contract, he retired from professional sports. He played his last match against the Hungarian national water polo team on Margaret Island in September 1955.

A picture of Terence Hill and Bud Spencer’s children together


There is no one who does not know the duo of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill in our small country: no holiday goes by without showing at least one of the duo’s famous films. Unfortunately, only one member of the legendary duo is alive: Bud Spencer passed away in June 2016. However, Terence Hill still keeps in touch with Bud Spencer’s widow and children.
Their relationship is so close that Terence Hill and his son, Jess, recently posted a joint photo with Bud Spencer’s two daughters, Diamante and Cristiana. The actor’s widow considers Terence Hill not just a friend, but a family member – it’s no coincidence that she was among the Pedersoli family at the funeral of the deceased legend.
Fans really liked the shot of Bud Spencer and Terence Hill’s children – they asked Cristiana to share more such pictures on her social media in the future.
