Tg1’s special broadcast on December 25th at 11.45pm by Leonardo Mitali is an exclusive document. Filmed between Italy and the United States, it tells the true story of the King of Tenors, Luciano Pavarotti. Primary teacher with a passion for singing, which he inherited from his father Fernando Panettiere in Modena since 1940 and amateur choirmaster Rossini.
It all started right in that bakery where Luciano gave his hand to his father, his mother Adele worked at the tobacco factory and his sister Gabriela wanted to become a physical education teacher. From the testimonies of his family members to the video material restored in a past/present narrative style, the documentary depicts everything as if time had never passed. public speaking, Trump’s closest friend, soccer and tennis; Passion for horses. The unknown side of Big Luciano, from his travels to the kitchen, from restaurants to favorite dishes. Secret stories with the two families. four daughters, two wives Adua and Nicoletta; Ten secretaries, women are often the protagonists of his choices.
His second life in the United States, more than thirty years in New York since his legendary debut in 1972 at the Metropolitan Opera House where he is still considered a legend today. An award given in memory of the artist by the Italian American Society of Washington, D.C., the NIAF National Italian American Foundation, will be on display at the house museum in Modena where the tenor lived until his last days. Today the tenor’s house is visited by thousands of people, both foreigners and Italians. A place where mementos that tell his story are kept and this documentary features him in preview.
Then his interpretations, from the less well-known to those that made him famous in every corner of the planet. A film with unpublished documents such as the first musical encounters with the three tenors Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras directed by Zubin Mitha, is expected to be an unprecedented worldwide success. His sympathies, constant jokes, and his favorite artists range from Bono Vox to Sting and Tony Renis, author of his latest duet with Celine Dion. And again Zucchero, who persuaded him to listen to Bocelli for the first time and write Miserere. Thus Pavarotti’s pop breakthrough was the birth of “Pavarotti and Friends”. Then a meeting with the tenor Vittorio Grigolo, who sang with Pavarotti as a child. Finally the voice of Stefano Accursi, who speaks for Modena.
