Evviva Giuseppe is a film about the life and the many valuable talents of Giuseppe Bertolucci: film, theatre and TV director; writer and poet. It is told through the voice of his father Attilio (who refers to the “painful privilege” of being a younger brother), of his older brother Bernardo (who tells a story of heart-breaking sweetness about his birth), the witness accounts of friends and colleagues: Lidia Ravera, Mimmo Rafele, Marco Tullio Giordana and Nanni Moretti as well as the memories of some of his favourite actresses, Stefania Sandrelli, Laura Morante and Sonia Bergamasco. The story is told with the help of Gian Luca Farinelli (the director of the Cineteca di Bologna), and the participation of Fabrizio Gifuni, Emanuele Trevi and Aldo Nove (in whose texts we can find some of Giuseppe’s thoughts). Roberto Benigni’s final monologue was written as a homage to his now departed old friend. Giuseppe’s physical presence and voice are found in interviews, backstage footage, debates and especially in his last and moving theatre performance: A mio padre – Una vita in versi (To my father – A life in verse), in which he tells of the anxiety and joy of his relationship with a father-poet who had made of him the topic of his lyrical production.
