From Amici to the Ballet of Rome. Serena Marchese (20 years old) and Alessandro Cavallo (21 years old) have obtained from the historic Roman complex, which in 2020 celebrated 60 years of uninterrupted activity, a one-year contract to participate in the latest ‘Astor’ production created, on the centenary of the disappearance of Astor Piazzolla, by the deputy director of the complex, Valerio Longo. The show debuts in Civitanova Marche on 29 July and will be part of a long international tour that includes stops in China (Beijing and Shanghai) and between May and June next year also in Brazil (Rio de Janeiro, San Paolo, Curitiba and Belo Horizonte ). It was precisely Valerio Longo who, together with Alessandra Celentano, both former Aterballetto stars, offered the two young dancers ‘live’ on Canale 5 the opportunity for this new challenge, identified, as underlined by the company management “for the evident technical skills but also for the stylistic versatility, in line with the varied and wide repertoire of the company. For years we have been committed, in fact – they still remember – in the enhancement of talent and in the professional enrichment of young people. Serena Marchese and Alessandro Cavallo are the face of a passionate generation in which we see our best future “. Proud Alessandra Celentano, coach of the Amici school, who, turning to Serena Marchese, confessed on the broadcast: “I am very happy with the path you have taken, not only from a professional point of view. You were born to dance, it is a great fortune, in many would like to have the qualities that you have, in addition to the character, the personality. I think you will have a good career. I have always seen great potential in you and I still see it today. The deputy director of the BdR Valerio Longo is also proud. “In this period I have seen and selected over 350 videos of young people who have participated in the auditions of the Ballet of Rome – he told Adnkronos – But I have also followed Amici on TV, like so many millions of Italians. For months I have been following Serena and Alessandro and the time had come to offer them opportunities – continued Longo – We have talents in front of us, young interpreters who are not closed in their past of studies but who know how to look to the future to discover their own vocation, without ever stopping “.
