-May 2015. Release 1st edition of my book IL FIGHTER D’ITALIA GIANCARLO GARBELLI-boxing is violent but violence isn’t boxing- Publisher RAI-ERI
– I’ll have a new publisher realising the 2nd edition of my book. Here is my monologue against the system that explains my professional stalemate.
Will the system change? It seems so. Optimism is the key to reading my life.
-If the Italian corrupt politics, it’s finally burned out in this 2018, and then there will be a real change- ha why do I quote the politic? Because in Italy all culture, sport, cinema, communication, art, entertainment, are financed by politics-.
So, If the change will materializes I can hope that you will soon see in theatrical release and TV screens my docu-film IL FIGHTER D’ITALIA GIANCARLO GARBELLI -boxing is violent but violence is not boxing-
The protagonist is GIANCARLO GARBELLI, our best Italian Boxing Champion ever, between the greatest in the world. Rich in witnesses. It’s about sport and human culture, history. And profound sensitivity. I wanted to make an indelible contribution to the History of the Great Boxing World.
I’m the author-director-editor and producer, supported by qualified technicians.
It took 16 years of battles, work, debts to make it possible. When it will be release …? Of course I need my country Italy, which is silent at the moment. Is it a political affair….? For me it is about cultural freedom, without vetoes and hypocrisies to pay tribute to the protagonist of our history.
-This video has nothing to do with my docu-film, it’s just a happy birthday for 80 years of my Dad Garbelli. I edited instantly. At the moment I can’ t show you more.
– I’m working on this docuserie with over 400 Boxing Champions, the best of all around the planet. Here I explain the idea. To update, please visit the page – DOCUSERIES-
-A true Lioness! We born 08 08 are evergreen! 🥊🥊😜…or at least we try with the help of healthy habits….Thank you God, to keep healthy all my friends too. In particular the ones that are more fragile. To fight in the jungle of life we all need health! KEEP HEALTHY HABITS, it’s my message in this 2018 birthday. Respect your body, your soul will be grateful. It’s also there, the youth secret…
I was born in Varese, my family is Milanese since ever. I studied at the Magistrale school, at Manzoni linguistic high school and at Bertarelli in Milano.
-I always been a sexy kind with a massive dose of irony.
I studied at the Lee Strasberg Theater Institute and I am observer member of the Actor Studio in New York. I starred in off-theaters, played in prestigious theater companies such as Il Piccolo Teatro di Milano.
Starring Annie Girardot- Fiorenza Marcheggiani- Maurizio Donadoni, Stephan Ferrara, Narcisa Bonati, and many other very good actors. Original music by Robert Mouyren. Selected for Italian Panorama at the Venice Int’l Film Festival.
It was an interesting researching work to build the characters and so I started from the hardest reality: two prisoners in jail for very different reasons, one is an ordinary criminal, the other is political terrorist.
The inspiration gave me a girl who really lived this useless, illusory experience. Then to write the screenplay, I studied, attended all of humanity involved, on the borders, on marginalization. I went in search of the real places, giving the authenticity of the social drama, the atmosphere, the prejudices, to direct the set at the best. With an inexhaustible desire to live, I draw this hard story, as raw and rough is the material that has stimulated my creativity.
Premieres in USA at Napa & Sonoma Valley Film Festival, San Francisco, CA. So in Los Angeles at the Italian Culture Institute. And here above, at Casa Italiana Zerilli/Marimò in New York.
