Bentivoglio: “Monterosi is like me, an involuntary winner in love with the losers”


“An involuntary winner in love with the losers”. This is how Fabrizio Bentivoglio describes Monterossi, the character he plays in the homonymous series produced by Palomar and available from January 17 on Amazon Prime Video. “A definition that photographs it – he adds – and with which I identify myself. There are several things we have in common: first of all the setting, Milan, my city, very different today from that of my youth and which despite the passing of the years remains the place of my memory. And then belonging to the same generation and being from Inter “. Monterossi is a dissatisfied author of TV programs, who becomes a detective by chance, determined to understand why and who tried to kill him by shooting him in his house. She does not live a couple relationship and has a passion for Bob Dylan, of which each song describes the moment she is living, giving voice to her moments of nostalgia. “It was easy to play Carlo Monterossi, I’m a bit like him. I too, for example, love Dylan, I have my vinyls like him and I spent nights deciphering some of his song lyrics. Everything we represent represents us – says the actor – I wanted Monterossi and I to seem the same person “. “I play Flora – says Carla Signoris talking about her character, the cynical presenter of a television program – I knew the books by Alessandro Robecchi, from which the series is based, and my character does not look like me, it is the expression of the cynicism of television , but it has an evolution, especially in the last episode, when they kidnap him. I can’t wait – she jokes – to be kidnapped too. Flora is the opposite of me, honeyed in front of the camera and a hyena in front of the guest and his tragedy, of which she is only interested in whether it is telegenic. Just as it cynically looks at the audience and if something is gory enough to make more listening. Flora would make a truculent appeal to persuade vaccination, without losing sight of the telegenicity of any interviewee “. The series is based on Robecchi’s novels published by Sellerio. The books dedicated to the character of Carlo Monterossi are in all eight, published between 2014 and 2021. The author declared that he was happy to “see what I wrote take shape on television, the collective work that is put into play to do it is exciting. It is another language, in different ways, but the important thing is that, as in any translation, there is convergence with what is written “. “When you approach a new job you have to understand how to safeguard the heart – says director Roan Johnson – you cannot betray the heart of the book you loved. We need to do some work on our ego, so as not to undermine the heart of the book. We did our best, with a cast I’m proud of, to make a crime capable of delving into feelings “.
