Why is Italian Cinema Hibernating During the Summer?

by Marianne Wi

If you are passionate about Italian films and everything to do with the Italian Film Industry, you will be climbing the walls heading for a proverbial breakdown during these hot summer months, there are few Italian films being released from June onwards, non on the horizon in fact before October; films are being short during the summer so at least some news are leaking out, of course, it is winter in Oz so various splendid Festivals are on the horizon, yet it is the bikini clad actresses and Italian stallions in their speedos, prancing on a beach keeping an ever watchful eye on the Paparazzi, not wanting to miss their chance to be in Diva e Donna or CHI magazine, that we are left with for a daily update. I have done my research, you would expect nothing else, right? the resounding excuse is ”it is too hot to go to the Cinema during the summer months”. What a load of old tosh, Italy is full of stunning open air cinemas and even air-conditioning has arrived in the boot, so you can watch a film in the cool comfort of a snug screening room. ”Nooooo, Italians would not want to see any new films while on holiday”…… Tell that to JK Rowling and Harry Potter, they have opened to full houses and have taken more than 10 million in Italy during its first 6 days, Transformer 3 has taken 7.5 million since the 01.07.2011 and the 3rd placed film Cars 2 has taken 9.5million since the 24.06.2011. Italians will go to the Cinema no matter what the month of the year, they have kids needing entertainment even if the sun does shine every day for 3 months. So please distributors of Italian films can we see some releases between June and September 2012 please, your public awaits you.

Alessandro Preziosi,Vittoria Puccini… accidenti Stefano Accorsi ?

by Marianne Wi

Alessandro Preziosi,Vittoria Puccini it is all over, previous blog.

The Italian press it up in arms again about the possible romance between Vittoria Puccini and Stefano Accorsi ?

What I hear you ask “is she already over Adriano Giannini” ? I am online booking my next flight to Rome, Giannini is my sort of man ( looks are not everything and beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, sure but still…….you can dream right ?)

According to those in the know, Accorsi and Puccini were caught on her balcony, in a compromising position. Now, as you all know the Italians are a nation of snoggers or peckkers, they have a need to kiss when encountering friends whatever their  age or sex , it is very much a “must” do, they will move in on you once they get close enough then WHAM BANG ! Being caught in a compromising position is not really that difficult unless they were naked having sex and I stress no one has claim that was the case , phew.

La vita facile, An easy Life directed by Lucio Pellegrini, staring both actors is out in the cinemas here in Italy this week, so this affair would come in very handy if you needed a bit of publicity; plus was the little madam not dating Adriano Giannini too , no wonder Preziosi is having rage issues.

I am new to the Italian press and paparazzi etiquette , however having just had to read page after page about our young stud Riccardo Scamarcio and his pretend affair with Deniz Ozdogan together with the additional headlines created when Valeria Galino met  Sean Penn all just staged before Riccardo went on stage in Rome and the film Manuale d’amore 3, Manual of Love 3 was released, more importantly there are no photos , not even bad grainy ones, it is beginning to sound a wee bit like a stunt to me, do you feel it too ?

Stefano Accorsi is in a long-term relationship with the lovely French model Laetitia Casta with whom he has 2 children. I am seriously hoping this is a publicity stunt by the producers or there will be hell to pay. Laetitia Casta looks like a lady that could wake the dead if she put her mind to it .
