The two originally met when they were young in Rosario, their hometown in Argentina. As a teenager, Messi moved to Spain to advance his football career. The closest friend of Roccuzzo, Ursula Notz, died in a car accident in 2005. According to Argentina’s Para Ti, Messi rushed from Spain to Argentina after learning the news in order to console his future wife.

In order to spread awareness about road accidents in Rosario, Roccuzzo paid homage to her deceased buddy in a series of Instagram Stories in 2019. She wrote in Spanish, “Absences are sensed in daily life, at parties, on birthdays, and on anniversaries. When we realise that we won’t continue to follow that voice, absences alter, enabling us to turn suffering into action while realising that we will never be the same as before. The absences lead us. Absences hurt, but they also provide us with a fresh start.”
