In this edition of the David by Donatello dominated by the ace pigliatutto Volevo Nascondermi (7 awards for the film with Elio Germano) to stand out was certainly also the victory in the category Best Immigrant Song, the piece with which Checco Zalone presented his latest film Tolo Tolo.
Immigrant therefore arrives in front of decidedly more quoted competitors, above all that Io Sì with which Laura Pausini triumphed at the previous Golden Globes and obtained a nomination for the last Oscars: a victory to which Luca Medici himself he seemed not to believe, as candidly admitted in connection with the David.
“If I knew I was going to win I would come! I won but nothing, nobody gives a damn, they are all asleep“were the words of the comedian, who then tried to communicate the news to the rest of the family without receiving a reply. Diplomat Laura Pausini in accepting defeat:”Thank you for thinking about the candidacy of this song, of our song, it’s not mine alone. […] It is strange for me to be here, in the midst of so many important players in my country. The place where I do it further down continues to be Italy, in fact I trembled more tonight than at the Oscars. Better that way. It means that I am Italian, that I am happy to be Italian and that I shit under in Italy“.
Someone, on the other hand, has been putting it aside for quite a while now: Gabriele Muccino, in fact, has definitively broken up with the Academy of David di Donatello after the exclusion of his The Most Beautiful Years.
