Antonello Falqui, father of the TV variety, died

ROMA – "I went for a long long journey, you can come to greet me on November 18 at 11 am at the church of Sant 'Eugenio at Viale Belle Arti in Rome … I beg of you, there are no flowers … On the spot they, if you want, you can help 'QuintoMondo Association of Animalists Volunteers Onlus … Ps: forgive Jimmy, Matteo and Luca if they haven't warned you before … ". Antonello Falqui, 94, television director and writer, welcomed the audience, after giving a perfect variation to history, from Musichiere to Canzonissima.

Remember, from Fiorello to Raffaella Carra's, from Rita Pavone to Mina fans, to Pippo Baudo who told how Falqui had auditioned him as soon as he arrived in Rome. On the other hand, Falqui has brought so many characters on TV that have become famous and indispensable to our imagination. Mina ("unmatched", he called her) but also the Kessler twins, Walter Chiari, Ugo Tognazzi, Franca Valeri, Nino Manfredi, Bice Valori.

Born in 1925, he enrolled in jurisprudence but later chose to register at the experimental center to become a director. In 1950 he was assistant director with Curzio Malaparte for the film 'Forbidden Christ'. Alla Rai arrived in 1952, where it began with a documentary. His first success was Il Musichiere, performed by Mario Riva, broadcast from 1957 to 1960. Then Canzonissima (1958, 1959, 1968, 1969), Studio Uno (1961, 1962-63, 1965 and 1966) and Milleluci in 1974.

As a TV director he also works with Alberto Lupo and Gabriella Ferri, Gigi Proietti and Milva. Variations, all variations, are summarized in the definition: "he was born as free time, as an escape: to have fun and spend time happy to see something elegant". Something elegant.

"Republicans will always struggle to defend freedom of information, for their readers and for all those who care about the principles of democracy and civil society"
