After over 30 years in RAI, I really appreciate that my name is still being used to catch audience's attention on Italian TV.
I have been told that every summer Techetechetè is broadcasting my comedy sketches and musical dance numbers, receiving great success.
I am really and truly honored.
Recently I have been mentioned in a new TV program for young kids on RAI3, called "alla Lavagna!".
I love the idea that even the sons and daughters, of the people who used to watch me on TV, can appreciate the Artist I have been and everything that I have done during my career with sacrifice and hard work.
Isn't it the dream of every artist to go through and be witnessed by generations on end?
Definitely, it is.
And how can I be remembered if not for one of my unforgettable songs as "Cicale" ?
This song is so famous amongst Italians that even the young kids of the tv show recognized it.
All of them, except the adult guest, invited as the teacher, who attributed it to the same singer who recently appreciated him so much in an interview.
But the odds were not finished yet.
During one of the next episodes, another guest invited as a teacher, enlisted me together with some of the most famous Italian tv Artists.
Unfortunately, I wasn't exactly on the same list but, just by myself, on one that was reserved to "mean" people.
What an awful word "mean" is, especially for a kid!
I believe that every child needs primarily to be raised amongst good feelings, positive stories, nice words.
And it is the responsibility of the parents to tell the right stories as much as it is the teachers in the schools and, the famous stars on TV.
For this reason every single word should be chosen accurately and measured precisely.
For every child, "mean" people, as in the stories & fables, as well as in reality, are evil from whom you need to escape.
I really had a lot of difficulties attempting to explain to my 8 year old twins, why I was just by myself on that list of "mean" people.
Everyone who intends to teach young children, should teach good feelings, not rage and revenge.
Bad Teachers make our children bad people and, a public TV "distracted" becomes a partner in crime.
