"From the beginning of my pregnancy, I wanted to stay here," she says. "If I went back to Italy, I would have had to fly before the seventh month, and I probably would have stayed four months after Lucrezia was born before we came back. And most of that time, my husband would be here in China! That just didn't make sense to me.

"Also, in Italy I would have been having the baby in a public hospital - in a room with 10 other women in labor. Here, I was in a Western hospital (Beijing United Family) where I could be private with my husband and we could really enjoy the moment."

Now a slightly wicked grin spreads across her face at having avoided her well-meaning relatives on that occasion.

"At home, there would be relatives every hour, full of advice," she says, laughing. "I love them, but I think this way was healthier for me. And some of my family will be able to come to Beijing for the baptism," which is today at Beijing's South Cathedral near Xuanwumen.

Since the Rizzos hope to stay in China for a while, what language will little Lucrezia learn first?

That's a question that tickles her mother. "She will either be fluent in three languages or totally confused," she laughs.

People who know Luciana Rizzo are betting on the first option.
