"We each went our separate ways after the sentence," Francesco Sollecito said of the Knox family. "But through my daughter I heard that Amanda's stepdad invited us to Seattle. It is too soon to say whether we will go."
Francesco Sollecito said his son was still adjusting to the world outside prison, walking around his home touching objects, sleeping a little and reconnecting with friends and family. The father and son held hands on the drive back to their home in Bisceglie, in the southern part of the Puglia region, he said. Raffaele, who said he feels "totally spaced out," told one of his lawyers that his first wish was to see the sea, and to spend time with his family.
Francesco Sollecito said his son's reacclimation into Italian life will begin today.
"Today he will eat fish, which he has not seen for ages," he said. "Today is a beautiful day, we want to enjoy it fully."
