"I was born Italian, but I decided to die as an American!"
Gianluca Zanna is more than just a qualified Rifleman, Distiguished
Graduated Handgun at Frontsight Nevada, Survivalist for ever student...
As the Italian Poet Dante went to political exile in the XII Century, thus an Italian poet of our times has chosen the voluntary exile and a new adoptive Country... America!
Luca Zanna, was born in Rome Italy.
Luca’s unusual adult experience was the outgrowth of an unconventional
Ironically, he soon went to a Rome boarding school (Convitto Nazionale),
in preparation for the day when he, too would enter the military academy
During WWII Zanna's family was under German occupation and they were liberated by American soldiers, so he always grew up with the respect and the admiration of American people that sacrificed their life for his freedom (listen to his song Thank You America).
Since his first high school years Zanna was a supporter of America.
As a junior high student, Luca studied Ancient Latin and Ancient Greek.
He also discovered a love for the great Italian poets of the classical
past, like Ovidio, Catullo, Dante, Petrarca, D'Annunzio and… He
admired their ability to transmit feelings and pictures in a few brief
phrases as a way to fight for what they believed in whether it be love
At 16 he joined the Military Academy of Nunziatella in Naples.
On the weekends, when most of the other boys would return home, Luca remained alone in the dormitory because he was most of the time punished for his rebellious character and his refusal to being bullied by his seniors.
After his Classic High School graduation, he was a drop out at Rome University Law school, since he knew that he was wasting his time in Italy... he wanted one day to be an American!
After a past of world traveling and windsurfing (South Pacific, Polynesia, Fiiji, Samoa, Canarias Islands...), before he legally emigrated to America, in Italy Zanna was one of the youngest Publisher of the Music Business Magazine (Contatto Discografico), he published music books (Vocal method of Elizabeth Sabine, the vocal coach of several rockstars from Hollywood like Megadeth and Axl Rose), Music Manager and Music Producer (he produced Aurelio RE).
Oppressed by an unjust socialist system where there are not individual
rights, but just government's privileges, and an unjust tax system (pretty
much like now it's here in America), at 28 he had an identity crisis,
and he decided to shut down his business and live on the streets of
Rome as a Roman Gladiator taking picture for tourists!
Zanna loves life, but he is not afraid to stand for the truth, for America, for Freedom and for any of his countrymen/women that believe in our US Constitution and Bill of Rights.
