to the Gazzetta. “Although many have already done so, I would like to make a film about Maradona. The choice between Naples and Rome is difficult for me”
His latest work is the series “The Foolish Fairies”, which is available in eight episodes on Disney +. We are talking about the Turkish naturalized Italian director Ferzan Ozbek. Who gave a long interview with Gazzetta dello Sport. About his passion for football and beyond.
“I enjoy pissing off my friends in Lazio by declaring myself a Giallorossi fan… In fact, I can appreciate a game I played well off the shirts on the pitch. My favorite races are the Italian ones, and there I unleashed my unbridled passion.”
Did you follow the European?
“Of course, how do you not see those toys?” I’m so excited. I was on the set of filming fairies, and we always talked about it, because Christiana Capotondi was really passionate. Before each match and then announced the results and guess the number of goals and even if it will end in penalties. They called me a wizard… I got them all! Someone even played up my expectations by making crazy profits.”
Let’s go back to Rome for a moment: tomorrow he will play in Naples, another city very close to it.
“And in fact it will be difficult for me… Naples is always in my heart, the Neapolitans are wonderful and when I am there I feel at home. I have encouraged them so many times and choosing between Naples and Rome is really difficult, and I have to limit myself to saying ‘Maybe That the best wins.” Then during the match I might change my mind as well because Napoli are high in the standings….”
“I love tennis and I’m glad Italy has talent like Berrettini, who by the way is a very nice and respected boy. I follow him on Instagram, I like it but I don’t think he notices it (laughs, editor). But the greatest remains Federer. And then, between us, all of them Beauties. In sports as in cinema, you have to look at beauty, skill and charm together, even if the attraction of sport often travels hand in hand with talent.”
If there are cinematic faces in football?
“Today I don’t know, but in the past there was a lot. Do you remember Cepino Nella? I loved him so much when I was a boy, he was beautiful! A few days ago, at the presentation party of Le Fate, I met Luigi Bossa, the Olympic Karate Champion, really very handsome » .
If any athlete would like to make a movie about it.
“Even if many have already done it, I say Maradona. He was a great great, he was almost an artist. Even today I happen to go and review his plays.”
