“Sanremo makes news, precedes, makes history of costume” with Drusilla Foer on the stage of the 72nd edition of the festival (from 1 to 5 February 2022). So Vladimir Luxuria, in an interview with Adnkronos, commenting on the presence of the character of the Florentine noblewoman, created by the actor Gianluca Gori who made her his alter ego: she will be one of the 5 ‘prima donnas’ who will support Amadeus in the management. “And this year from the festival will come a good message against prejudice and gender discrimination, a good message of inclusiveness – he added – Drusilla’s choice says that the time is ripe for co-conducting en travesti”. Read also “It should be emphasized, however – adds the former deputy and transgender activist speaking – that Drusilla is first of all a great professional who will bring added value to the festival show and for this reason she was chosen. She is a great theater actress, very refined and sophisticated and her sagacity will do well at the festival. Furthermore, I believe that Amadeus has the right style to avoid any morbidity about Drusilla’s presence at the festival “, he underlines.” Surely this year an important signal will start from Sanremo, also for the Lgbtq + community but not only, as it already was for the Sanremo ‘rainbow’ in 2016, when all the singers spent their time in support of the Cirinnà bill on civil unions. Art cannot fail to be inclusive “, remarked Luxuria. Which then expresses a wish for the future: “I hope that one day a transgender person can also be called to conduct or co-conduct the festival. But the only rule must always be that the choices, selections, castings must be made on professionalism and not on gender “, concludes Luxuria.
