Vento Aureo - Chapter 33 
Narancia Ghirga was born on May 20, 1983. At the age of 10, his mother died; his father, not caring much about Narancia, neglected him. Narancia soon quit going to school, instead hanging around friends and stealing food for his meals. When asked what the most important thing in the world is, he would respond "friendship." One day, a friend told him to dye his hair blonde so they would match. Narancia did what the friend told him, and the next day was caught and thrown into a juvenile detention center. His friend had betrayed him, but Narancia believed these kind of thoughts were unforgivable. A year later, he was released from the detention center, but developed an eye infection due to the guards constantly beating him. His friends stayed away from him, believing he had the same illness as his mother, and were afraid of catching it. At that moment, Narancia gave up living.
One day, while walking down the streets of Naples, Pannacotta Fugo saw the young Narancia scrounging for food in the trash. Fugo took the kid to a restaurant where Bucciarati was at, and fed him some pasta. Bucciarati then brought Narancia to a hospital, where his eye infection gradually cured. Narancia asked Bucciarati why he helped him, to which Bucciarati responded that Narancia should stay with his parents and attend school. Narancia begged to work for Bucciarati, but the latter would not allow it. Narancia went back to his father and started attending school. Half a year later, he joined the gang.
As he finally realizes that he is shrinking, Narancia tries to call Bucciarati, but can't enter the building due to being too small to trigger the automatic door. Narancia opens the door, but it immediately closes on him. Formaggio mocks Narancia, telling him that his struggle is useless, and that his phone card shrunk with him, making it impossible to call his friends. Narancia uses Aerosmith to destroy the door, and break the phone's coin box.
