4. A lifelong love
Despite being a pacifist, Giulini was forced to join the Italian army during World War II, but he refused to fire his gun at another human being. In 1942, while on leave in Rome, he married Marcella de Girolami, his girlfriend since 1938; they had three children and remained together until her death 53 years later.
