The Love Story of Fito Páez and Cecilia Roth
It all started in Buenos Aires when Fito Páez had given up on love after his intense relationship with Fabiana Cantilo. But a chance meeting with Cecilia Roth at a bar in 1991 changed everything. Although their initial interaction left their attraction as just a mere illusion.
Months later, Fito arrived at a costume party in Cecilia’s house in Uruguay dressed up as himself. The night was filled with conversation and looks that made it impossible for Cecilia to resist her heart.
Despite being married, Cecilia separated and began a romantic relationship with Fito. They got married and gave birth to their son, Martin Páez Roth.
The Inspiration Behind “Love After Love”
On its 30th anniversary, Fito Páez’s most successful album “Love after love” became the primary inspiration for a television series based on the artist’s memoirs. The show is a tribute to Argentine rock, a soundtrack that hasn’t only accompanied the country but also found its release in Latin America and other parts of the world.
Through the series, Fito tells various stories from his life, including his childhood, early years with his father, grandmother, and great-aunt. The series includes the death that went through his biography, his beginnings as a musician, and how he made his records. It also covers the Argentine musical movement from the 70s onwards.
The Reason Behind Their Breakup
Fito Páez and Cecilia Roth ended their relationship in 2002 without going public with the reason behind their breakup. They had been together for almost a decade and were one of the favorite couples in the entertainment industry.
Reports at the time claimed that the relationship was wearing out, and the most challenging moment would have been during filming from “Private Lives,” a movie directed by Fito. The experience convinced them that they were better apart, but their bond remained unbroken.
