The actress: I ran away from Carmelo Bene’s home after a breakup, we did not perceive one another anymore. I launched myself to the Piccolo after my father died

Giorgio Strehler and Franco Battiato. Carmelo Bene and Checco Zalone. Zubin Metha and Antonio Albanese, brothers Bertolucci and Camilleri, Irène Némirovsky and Roberta Torre. If an Italian model of the sport of the six levels of separation utilized to Kevin Bacon have been made, the chosen one can be Sonia Bergamasco† There is no such thing as a different like her: a diploma as a pianist on the Milan Conservatory and that on the Scuola del Piccolo, beginning with a bang, accompanied by Strehler, then a collection of distinctive encounters as much as his theater and opera path. A standard thread that is aware of how one can unite opposites, to place the totally different ones on the similar desk. A rare expertise for opening new doorways. But in addition a dedication to shut them if crucial. Indicators of recognition: a mane of honey blond hair and infectious laughter. Milanese, born in 1966, married to her colleague Fabrizio Gifuni with whom she had two daughters, Valeria and Maria, she has simply inaugurated a brand new chapter, poetry, with
the pocket book
out with La Nave di Teseo similtaneously the present to be held tonight in Milanesiana.

“I buried my father once I was eighteen. To be exact / “hoisted” within the fourth row in a rural cemetery (the parterre was too costly). / Troublesome occasions, adolescence. Wretched forest of thorns ». She determined to open her poetic diary, what drove her?

“Perhaps it is a time in life once I’m prepared. I have been writing since I used to be a woman, proper now it is my favourite factor to do, a path I wish to comply with increasingly. Writing is primarily the flexibility to have a look at myself within the mirror. On the quilt I put an image of me on 3 at Christmas. Trying again on that little lady, I additionally discover myself with all the injuries, the inequalities, the stops, the difficulties. I’m glad that a part of that youngster has remained intact ».

What was she like as a toddler?

“I wished so badly to develop up, to not be there anymore. At dwelling, music was within the air, regardless that just one aunt, Zia Margherita, practiced it. She was a promising singer who didn’t proceed, she devoted herself to the household. My grandmother liked the opera, she performed the piano which precipitated every part to go incorrect, my grandfather on my father’s facet hummed opera arias, however nobody had gotten any additional. My mom wished our brothers to study to play an instrument and she or he initiated me on the piano ».

Do you bear in mind the years of the Conservatory?

“I obtained into it once I was ten, it was a problem. For me it was very troublesome due to the monastic closure that I noticed, which I suffered a bit from. The band of music that I later discovered was imprinted in it as DNA ».

Why the Piccolo Teatro faculty?

“It was an impulsive selection, at age 18, after my father died. He was 48, very younger, it occurred all of a sudden. For me it was a giant shuffle. I felt the necessity to perceive what I wished and what I might do, I needed to make clear my concepts shortly. I used to be drawn to the ban on drama faculty. I definitely did it unconsciously, however principally unprepared. I believe they took me for the musicality of my means of dealing with rehearsal, or fairly rehearsals, three over the course of the yr. Maybe they have been struck by some form of ear coaching in my enjoying ».

How did your mom take it?

“I already lived alone, it was my selection, she discovered afterwards.”

And after some time she was on stage with Strehler.

«From faculty to enterprise. for the Faust after which theHarlequin† Priceless recollections. Giorgio had a charming and considerably terrifying leonine enthusiasm. And above all an infectious ardour ».

And a pleasant print within the theater.

I’ve executed quite a bit. With Glauco Mauri, with Massimo Castri, 5 years of reveals ».

Together with «The Vacation Trilogy». In the identical firm as her future husband.

“We obtained to know Fabrizio whereas we have been working. Others have put the lyrics collectively, whereas Massimo wished to do three totally different reveals: Le manias, Le journey and Il viaggio. With Castri, three years of touring collectively. I had already met him: I went to see him carry out inelectrical energy with a pal of mine. Then we discovered ourselves for Goldoni. Two and a half years of reruns. We moved in collectively ».

Milan or Rome?

«In Rome, Monti district. It was 1997, a Roman would by no means have understood the Milan of that point. Now she is happier and extra lovely. I at all times take pleasure in going again there. That home in Monti is linked to different particular encounters. One specifically, within the neighborhood pharmacy ».

Not with a health care provider, I assume.

«With Giuseppe Bertolucci, who I shot with Love in all probabilitymy first film, after the brief Throughout the summer time with Silvio Soldini. We have been neighbors, however we did not understand it. We met on the pharmacy, I had my hair lower very brief for Pinocchio by Carmelo Bene. He got here dwelling and stated to his spouse: I’ve seen the primary character of the movie. I stated to Fabrizio: I met somebody within the pharmacy who was looking at me. Then we turned good mates ».

And the way was Carmelo Bene?

“A brand new starting. He collaborated with Elisabetta Pozzi on the reissue of his lovely copy Adelchi“He was searching for younger actresses. A part of me wished to get to know him and work with him, however given his overwhelming persona, I hesitated. After I met him, I discovered an individual with stellar irony: with him you may flip round with laughter. Many actresses confirmed up for auditions. He requested you to go on stage and recite verses into the microphone and he thundered from his microphone, he had lots of enjoyable. I did not decide. After a number of days he discovered me: you aren’t performing? I did and he supplied me to work with him ».

On which?

“A interval of paid research that might give the potential for a present, we did not know which one but. I had no doubts: a form of sabbatical exterior of any norm. It was the Pinocchio, the most recent version. An enormous effort: a scorching summer time, rehearsals on the Angel’s theater, as a fairy I had a really heavy velvet costume with stuffing that made me appear to be a doll and a set masks on half my face and on which I needed to put different masks. I obtained my hair lower on objective. We took it to Argentina, simply us on the rostrum ».

After which?

“It ended abruptly. I went to his home in Otranto to review for Iorio’s daughter by D’Annunzio. One night there was a breakup, we now not understood one another. I dropped every part and left at daybreak. We met once more for the resumption of Pinocchio† I’ve a transparent reminiscence of him ».

Even with Battiato a non-compliant assembly.

“He noticed us in Lto the very best of youth by Marco Tullio Giordana, he referred to as us for his musicians, his Beethoven movie. With Fabrizio we’ve accepted this journey in each traditional means. He confirmed us a exhibiting at his home in Milo, he wished to take him to Venice, I instructed him it was higher not, he would not perceive, he did not care.”

He was whistled.

“It was a disaster foretold, it was an object that could not be attributed to that context. However Franco adopted his paths. I additionally did a TV present with him Bitte, no promoting† A really beneficiant man, it was straightforward to be with him. He moved, walked solely flippantly, with out burdening anybody, with out judging. Pure want ».

Twenty years later, “The Better of Youth” stays a fixture. What was it for you?

«A turning level that united us. We have been a bunch of younger actors, the central core knew one another, me, Fabrizio, Luigi Lo Cascio, Alessio Boni. And Maya Sansa, Jasmine Trinca, Claudio Gioè, Valentina Carnelutti and Adriana Asti. An progressive work, made for TV and launched within the cinema. I am glad I’ve such a protracted and necessary life ».

He by no means snubbed the TV.

“Really, I’ve executed quite a bit. In many alternative methods. Of the The Gasperic by Liliana Cavani a Loopy about love by Riccardo Milani, written by Ivan Cotroneo, a dive into lightness ».

And Montalbano. Livia for five years, then on the cellphone. The general public obtained offended.

“To be sincere, I additionally say: however what comes out like that? However Camilleri had written it … ».

They did the French remake of “Quo vado?” How did Nunziate and Medici persuade you?

“A marriage invitation. A dive into the void for me. But in addition for them: taking me for a comedy was a good suggestion. How you can translate the traditional character of the male government right into a feminine character. I liked Dr. Sironi, I attempted to defend her by struggling, and was lastly destroyed by that wretched Checco Zalone ».

He obtained a style for comedy, with Luce di “A cat on the ring street

“I like her very a lot, so misplaced in her wanderings. The daughters are obsessed with it, they ask if Fabrizio additionally decides to throw himself into the comedy ».

In some unspecified time in the future within the theater, he started directing: “The dance”, “The seed man”, and many others.

«Texts that don’t come from the theatre. Nonetheless the obsession with language that I comply with in my very own means ».

For her, there would be the resumption of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” after the summer time. by Antonio Latella.

“A beloved job, I’ve wished to behave with Antonio and Vinicio Marchioni for a very long time. Uncommon generosity and brilliance. An important group, a pleasure to be collectively. It isn’t apparent.”

At dwelling we frequently speak about work.

“It has been a part of our lives from the very starting. How will we disconnect? We play chess with Fabrizio. We performed it once we met, throughout our holidays in Greece, I bear in mind afternoons once I was at all times dropping. We began once more and finally I began successful too.
