If you are allowed 1 hour each for any famous people alive to have a personal chat with, who you would choose?
1. Roberto Benigni

What is this immense charm behind this seemingly pathetic looking little man? I would love to hear about stories behind his latest work "the tiger and the snow", about an Italian Poet stuck in Iraq during a war time...
2. Michael Palin

And what stories he must have got to tell after all these travelling around the globe!!

The guy who wrote so many songs that echoed my heart, the guy who reminds me so much of my dad...
4. Kofi Annan
, Secretary General of United Nations
He's got one of the most difficult jobs in the world in this difficult time and he manages to keep himself above...what would be his ideal?
5. Alex Zanardi
Has been a very successful Formula One/Cart racer. He has returned to the race scene after a horrible accident in 2001 in which he lost both of his legs... he is a testimony of sheer courage, determination and rising above adversities...

The next Bono of the new generation, both with the on-stage charisma and being an ambassador of goodwill offstage... what are his inspirations?

Then... an honorary mention goes to Mattie Stepanek
