Album Stefano Accorsi
Stefano Accorsi's first autobiographical book, edited by Malcom Pagani and published by Gruppo Editoriale, is now available
"I have travelled. I have dreamed. I have fallen and I have got back up, always following my dreams". The speaker is Stefano Accorsi, who for the first time tells his story in an autobiographical book, edited by journalist and writer Malcom Pagani, published by Gruppo Editoriale; in bookshops from Tuesday 22nd June.
"Inside this book - continues the famous actor and artistic director of the Fondazione Teatro della Toscana - there is a long part of my life. Telling it made me discover things about myself that I didn't even remember. Faces, voices, people who have accompanied me on an adventure that I would not want to relive in any other way. I really want to travel again.
Album Stefano Accorsi is a first-person account that traces the career of the Bolognese actor in a large-format volume, studded with an extraordinary collection of photographs, many of them unpublished and personal.
From his childhood to the present day, the focus is on the life of the protagonist of the films that have marked the history of Italian cinema over the last thirty years, from his debut with Pupi Avati, from the Bologna School of Drama to Luciano Ligabue's Radiofreccia, from Gabriele Muccino's L'ultimo bacio to Ferzan Özpetek's Le fate ignoranti, from Michele Placido's Romanzo Criminale to Matteo Rovere's Veloce come il vento, until he became the creator and protagonist of the famous 1992, 1993, 1994 trilogy.
An intimate and personal diary that travels through childhood memories, the beginnings of his career, his great success and the behind-the-scenes stories of a normal guy struggling with a popularity that came all at once. But it is also the story of the challenge with himself that led him to leave Italy and spend part of his life in Paris.
