Bruno Coquatrix, Olimpia’s friend and her headmaster, used to say that “all her life was a revenge for a dreadful youth”. Her mother from Kabylie (Algeria) didn’t want to hear about her and her father couldn’t take care of her. Little Edith Giovanni Gassion spent her early years at the house of her grandmother, the owner of a shady hotel in Normandy, until her father, a wandering rubber man, didn’t take her on a tour to collect money at the end of his shows. The amazing life of a petite woman who became the greatest diva of French music.
