Nicoletta Mantovani's spreading the gospel of Italian vascular surgeon Paolo Zamboni -- she says that he's cured her of Multiple Sclerosis. Six months ago, the Italian doctor performed his controversial surgery on Pavarotti's widow who now claims that she's symptom-free of the degenerative disease. Zamboni hypothesizes that MS is caused by "chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI)" which prevents proper blood drainage from the head due to blocked veins.
The news comes on the eve of Mantovani's debut as a film producer. Her movie, "E la chiamano estate" is about "the abnormalities and the perversions of many couples" which launches in Italy on November 22.
