The interview is enriched by the memories of Duccio Trombadori, son of Antonello who had been a close friend of Guttuso all his life. Trombadori underlines how for Guttuso, painting was a testimony, an active participation in reality: “Real things”, as the title of the 1973 documentary itself. From childhood in Bagheria, participation in the Spanish war, the Bologna exhibition in ’48 and Togliatti’s attack, his friendship with Picasso; all passages of a life dedicated, as Guttuso himself said, to the magic of art: the waves, youth and the nightmare of the Vietnam War.

A sort of autobiographical adventure, in memory of the director’s early years in Malibù in California. Damiano and Fabio D’Innocenzo at “Wonderland” on Rai4 – Giorgia Meloni guest of ‘Porta a Porta’ on Rai1 The turbid and pessimistic vision of the Lazio province photographed from the eyes of the brothers Damiano and Fabio D’Innocenzo, it is at the center of the new episode “Wonderland”, broadcast tomorrow at about 11.50 pm on Rai4 (channel 21 of digital terrestrial). The Rai4 magazine met the twin directors on the occasion of the theatrical release of “America Latina”, their third feature film, which takes place right in a peripheral area of Agro Pontino to develop a very dark psychological thriller that has in Elio Germano the effective protagonist. To begin with, however, “Wonderland” indulges in a fantastic digression and for the Pop cover of the week it tells the sci-fi road-movie “The Last Day on Earth”, in cinemas from 20 January. Winner at the Sitges Festival, chosen as the opening film of the last edition of Trieste Science + Fiction, the debut feature film by Frenchman Romain Quirot tells of a not too distant future, in which the climate disaster is leading to extinction many species living on the Land.

Third stage, tomorrow at 23.25 on Rai Premium (digital terrestrial channel 25) of the journey of “Caro Diego”, the program by Diego Dalla Palma on the way of being and appearing. The transmission in this episode will allow Alessandro Caputo and Milena Finetti to achieve what may seem futile to many, but which in reality arises from a form of insecurity in both: to feel and see themselves improved. Alessandro, a philosophy student from Bellaria, is an educated boy who lives every form of art with passion and curiosity. He feels in himself a form of insecurity due to his appearance: he sees himself banal, common, inadequate compared to the potential he believes he has. A considerable transformation is foreseen for Alessandro, practically an upheaval. Milena, on the other hand, has a need common to many women: in the workplace – she takes care of the administrative part of the family company in the province of Cremona – she does not feel sufficiently taken into consideration. Preparation, competence and results indicate that Milena is a winning figure professionally even if, more often than not, she is told that she should be more authoritative. She is convinced that all of this depends on only one factor: getting greater incisiveness through one’s appearance.
