El destino unió a Carolina y Stefano en un crucero por Córcega y navegando por el Mediterráneo se vieron por primera vez. Se enamoraron con solo mirarse y se volvieron locos de amor, tanto que después de ese viaje se perdieron juntos por unas semanas y cuando aparecieron los nuevos enamorados ya eran noticia por todas partes. Con esto Carolina dejaba atrás su relación con Robertino Rosellini y Stefano a una novia italiana, Pinuccia Macheda, quien cayó obviamente en una depresión horrorosa al ver que su amor, con el que acostumbraba a pasear en Ferrari por las cercanías del Lago di Como, la dejaba por la princesa Carolina de Mónaco.

Con una Carolina que no dejaba de sonreír y que de a poco comenzó a cambiar su vestuario por uno más conservador, se realizó el matrimonio flash de esta pareja debido a que estaban esperando a su primer hijo, Andrea. Stefano le regaló a Carolina un anillo de zafiros de color azul, amarillo y rosa, casi como si supiera que serían tres los hijos que tendrían. ...
