Alessia Marcuzzi: “I asked to go to Rai 2”
The idea of Boomer was born during the lockdown, talking to the authors Fabrizio Biggio, Valerio Palmieri and Sabrina Giovannelli. “We all dreamed in our bedroom when we were kids. I stood with the broom in front of the mirror and played Madonna, Michael Jackson, all my idols. I dreamed of having my own stage, which then became my job».
Now his stage is again that of Rai 2. Not Rai 1, but he doesn’t worry about it. «I went to Stefano Coletta (the prime time entertainment director, ed) they I asked to be able to go to Rai 2». The reason is to be found in the nature of the network. «I would like to do this challenge in a network that looks a lot like me», she says, «even if the ratings are not as high as the others, because it has an audience that in my opinion needs to be accompanied a bit». Moreover, “I wanted to get involved, do something new in a net that had the right strings for me”.

I remember that lightness well. I miss it and I’m glad when I see that now we go back to those years a bit.
