This book is not to tell anecdotes, but it is a somewhat Fellini-like journey. I wake up in a stupor and hear my mom put Vix on my chest and then a blue washcloth, which we had around the house. I hear all the friends’ voices outside, so at a certain point I get up, go out and there are all the friends I’ve always worked with. And their voices mix. I see that there is something strange, because it seems to me that some are no longer there. So I listen to what they say about me.
In fact the new book by Diego Abatantuono contains a series of interviews carried out by Giorgio Terruzzi himself:
I had Terruzzi do the interviews, so what they say is real dialogue between them. There are so many things in the book, very funny. Of course, there are other anecdotes as well.

But he’s a moron, look at Arbore, go away, forget him. That’s a moron over there. But isn’t he ashamed?” She was ashamed because me acting for her was too emotional, so she tried not to let me do this job with this trick.
Luckily Renzo Arbore did not listen to the advice. And the career of Diego Abatantuonodecades later, continues film after film.
