Most Beautiful Daddy

Twenty-nine-year old Francesco Perozzi from Verona seized the title of Italy's 'Most Beautiful Daddy' after beating 17 other finalists in the 'diaper-change' and 'dance with mother-in-law' categories.

Organizers of the annual pageant in the seaside town of Gatteo Mare crowned the winner at the 19th edition not only for his winning good looks, but also his demonstration of family values. The 2012-2013 title holder won over the jury for his rendition of "Meraviglioso" by Domenico Modugno sung in front of a crowd of 3,000 attendees.

Perozzi, married for one year and father for 9 months, dedicated the victory to his family.

Other pageant titles included 'Most Elegant Father' and 'Friendliest Dad'.
