Lorella Cuccarini overcomes the controversy with Alberto Matano, wins "Tale e Quali Show" and accepts the challenge of "Amici"
Lorella Cuccarini forgets the controversy with Matano, conquers Tale and Which Show and goes to Amici. After difficult months, marked by the farewell to La Vita in Diretta and the quarrel with the journalist, the presenter is ready to take her revenge. To give her a new television challenge was Maria De Filippi who wanted her as a talent teacher alongside Arisa, also a new entry. Lorella will also be joined by the veterans of the show: Veronica Peparini and Alessandra Celentano.
"It is a joy to join Amici's team: – he told Ansa – today it is perhaps the only program that cultivates young dance talents. And then it is an opportunity to test my qualities as a teacher able to interpret the dreams and expectations of children, to help them grow: a great responsibility ". Host of La Vita in Diretta for several months, Cuccarini left the program shortly before the summer. A farewell amidst controversy, marked by a letter in which Lorella defined Matano as a “male chauvinist” and “egocentric”. The call of Maria De Filippi and the challenge of Amici represent yet another turning point in the career of a great artist.
"In such a complex year – admitted Lorella -, I liked taking up the challenge of presenting myself in a different guise, staying a little more behind the scenes to make myself available to the students, share my experience and in some way give them back the immense gift I had from life – he added – […] With Amici I return to dance, my first environment, perhaps the most familiar. But the 'signals' are many: Canale 5 turns 40 and I return to a network in which I worked for 14 years, a piece of my history ". Finally, the presenter said she wanted to close the controversy with Alberto Matano: "I threw the past behind my back, I am proactive, there is still a lot of good things to do", she clarified, admitting however that "Maria's call it was like a caress, in the true sense of the term ”.
Before landing at Amici, Lorella also conquered another program. Cuccarini was a guest of Tale and Which Show to talk about the charity project Thirty hours for life. For the occasion, the entire cast of the program sang The night flies with Gabriele Cirilli in his shoes and Carlo Conti in connection from home.
