Serena Bortone's guest, Maria Grazia Cucinotta retraced the most important stages of her life
The social summer of Maria Grazia Cucinotta
Today's guest is another day, Maria Grazia Cucinotta retraced the most important stages of her life: from the sparkling career, to friendship with Massimo Troisi, passing through love with Giulio and that for his parents.
The Sicilian actress recalled her friend Massimo, with whom she worked on the set of the cult film Il Postino. In addition to dwelling on the artist's great talent, Cucinotta also spoke of the important role he had in his life:
Massimo was like that, he never acted. For me he was a big brother, he invited me for a New Year's Eve at his house and there I met Giulio. I begged him not to give him my number because I didn't like him, but obviously he didn't listen to me. Giulio called me, I hadn't even recognized him. He said to me: 'Are you free this day? Because I want to marry you. '
Maria Grazia Cucinotta celebrated 25 years of marriage with Giulio Violati in October. A solid love, made up of many differences but above all of passion and a great feeling:
I was not pro marriage. I was afraid of falling in love with the wrong person, I was afraid that this bond would take away my freedom. Instead Giulio never told me no: I was in Los Angeles for 10 years, then I got pregnant and moved back to Italy. I wanted to raise my daughter in Italy, a country that is the cradle of culture.
The actress then reiterated that to unite them there is only love and, obviously, their daughter Giulia, born in 2001. In fact, she and Giulio are profoundly different people, with different interests, as she explained to Bortone's microphones: " The most beautiful thing we have done together, which is also the only one, is our daughter Giulia. Her full name is actually Giulia Grazia Maria, the union of our names ".
During the chat with the host, Cucinotta also talked about her mother, who was a great inspiration for her: “She has always been the source of my creativity. She taught me that there is never an end: she had two children at forty, when everyone told her she was too old, she got her driving license when she grew up, showing great determination ".
