(ANSA) - ROME, AUG 8 - A 23-year-old man from Catania has been crowned Mr Italy.
    Walter Zappala, a 1.86 m (6ft 2) tall, dark haired political science graduate who wants to make it in show business, was named Italy's best-looking man by a jury led by the soubrette Nathalie Caldonazzo in Pescara at the weekend.
    A former winner, Luca Onestini, presented the final night of the contest with singer Jo Squillo.
    "I still have to realize what happened," said Zappala, who practises soccer, swimming and judo.
    "I dedicate this above all to my family," he said.
    "My dad Lanfranco is here with me in Pescara but the first phone call cam from home with my mother Anna and my sister Ginevra, in tears of joy". (ANSA).
