"My Kobe" by Christopher Ward

2023-02-22

On Thursday, February 16, 2023, our Milan Store hosted the presentation of Christopher Ward's book, a childhood friend of Kobe Bryant. Their friendship dates back to the period when the NBA basketball legend lived in Italy, and it reveals his lesser-known and more intimate sides.

"Before being a celebrated champion worldwide, Kobe was a child just like all of us. There is a moment when we are all equal, at the same starting point. There is a moment in our lives when each of us is Kobe."

On Thursday, February 16, 2023, our Milan Store hosted the presentation of Christopher Goldman Ward's book, a childhood friend of Kobe Bryant. Their friendship dates back to the period when the NBA basketball legend lived in Italy, and it reveals his lesser-known and more intimate sides.

The event, presented by Jacopo Pozzati, had two special guests: the author of the book, Christopher Ward, and Alessandro Mamoli, a former basketball player for Olimpia Milano under Mike D'Antoni, a former youth basketball coach, and currently a sports journalist and TV host for Sky Sport. These prominent figures provided a narrative of Kobe from different perspectives—Chris shared personal and intimate memories, while Alessandro focused on his sporting and competitive journey.

We are delighted to have hosted this significant presentation, which concluded with a collective toast offered by Venturini & Baldini, in memory of Black Mamba.
