ADRIANO CELENTANO: “IN SOUL I AM A HOUR”

Adriano Celentano – a unique phenomenon on the stage. All the artist’s universities are in the 5th grade of an elementary school and watchmaker’s workshop. But before this ingenious self-taught, film masters take off their hat. This is Adriano Celentano. The idol of Italian and Russian women admits that she loves to bake buns, repair watches and longs to live “a calm life of an ordinary person.” The famous Italian actor and singer Adriano Celentano for many years at the zenith of popularity.

If not for Elvis Presley …
Adriano was born on January 6, 1938 on the outskirts of Milan in a family of poor peasants. His first realized dream was “to earn a lot, a lot of money to provide for all the relatives” who came to Milan in search of work and good luck. In the evenings, the large Celentano family went out onto the porch and sang Italian folk songs. And Adriano sat aside and listened: naturally weak lungs, as well as the elephant, which, in his opinion, stepped on his ear in early childhood, did not allow the little boy to participate in public concerts.

THE SALTON OF ITALY – TOTO CUTUNO

No matter how strange it may look, this singer and composer, whose world fame came from the song “L’italiano”, is more popular and loved abroad than in his homeland. Of course, in Italy everyone knows Toto Cutugno, they sing his songs, but it was on the Apennines that the performer’s work was constantly smashed to pieces without finding something original in the compositions of Cutugno. But the paradox is that the audience never agreed with their opinion – Toto was and remains the favorite of the public, who became the face of the San Remo festival, introducing a new hit on it almost every year, and then disappearing from his native stage until the next season .

Sea and music
On July 7, 1943, a boy was born in the Tuscan town of Fozdinovo in the Kutuno family, who was named Salvatore, but mother Olga called her son Toto from childhood. Under this name, he later became a famous singer. The childhood and singer Toto Kutunoyunyutno years of Kutuno passed in the port city of La Spezia, where they transferred the father of Domenico Kutuno – a naval sailor. Father’s love for the sea was also transmitted to his children. Toto still could not stand confidently on his feet, but in the water he felt like a fish, and later disappeared on city beaches, dreaming of distant travels and deep feelings. Continue reading

A BEAUTIFUL TALE WITH A DEEP MEANING IN THE SLEEPING BEAUTY BALLET

The tale of the French writer Charles Pierrot “Sleeping Beauty”, as it turned out, hides many secrets.
