Lorella Cuccarini is one of the best known and most talented showgirls on the Italian television scene. Always passionate about dance, she began to take her first steps in dance at the age of nine, attending the dance school of Enzo Paolo Turchi.
Pippo Baudo has always boasted of having "discovered" her: he strongly wanted her by his side in the Saturday night variety of Rai 1, Fantastico, which marked his debut on TV. Shortly thereafter, she also enjoyed great success in the world of music: Night flies, the theme song she sang in Antonio Ricci's Odiens variety, consecrated her as an all-round showgirl.
Her career in the nineties gave her a lot of satisfactions: together with Marco Columbro, with whom she will form a professional partnership that will last for several years, Lorella Cuccarini has conducted several editions of highly successful varieties such as Paperissima and Buona Domenica. In 1993, together with his friend Pippo Baudo, he also hosted the Sanremo Festival, in which he also participated as a singer competing in the 1995 edition with the song Another love no.
Over the years he has presented many programs, such as Campioni di danza, A tutto festa and Vota la voce, without forgetting The night flies, where he proposes songs from the Eighties, and Domenica in, working with many well-known faces of Italian television.
However, Cuccarini did not only do TV: from 2012 to 2014 she hosted the program Citofonare Cuccarini on Rai Radio 1, not to mention the activity in the theater, which saw her take part in several successful musicals and shows.
After a few years spent away from the small screen, in 2016 Lorella was the protagonist of the show-event Nemicamatissima, in which for the first time she worked together with her historical artistic rival, Heather Parisi.
In 2019, for the first time, Cuccarini is leading a daily program: the 2019-2020 edition of the afternoon rotogravure La Vita Live, flanked by Alberto Matano. His adventure with the program ended in a somewhat turbulent way, leaving Rai.
Cuccarini thus returned to Mediaset, where Maria De Filippi wanted her as a dance teacher at the Amici school.
As for her private life, after being romantically linked to the professional dancer Pino Alosa, in 1991 Lorella Cuccarini married the producer Silvio Testi (pseudonym of Silvio Capitta) with whom she had 4 children: Sara, Giovanni, and the twins Giorgio and Chiara.
Married life has not always been easy, but the two have resisted and are now one of the longest-lived couples in the entertainment world.
