(ANSA) – ROME, DEC 10 – The story of a ransom or, even better, as they say in Naples with great synthesis, “of sons and stepchildren”. A true story, but dramaturgically from the textbook, the one that involved, at the beginning of the 1900s, I FRATELLI DE FILIPPO, or Peppino, Titina and Eduardo, told this time in a more popular and direct way by Sergio Rubini, after he had it made by Mario Martone in QUI RIDO IO with a more metaphysical and high cut and with a story declined more on the figure of Scarpetta. Already at the Rome Festival and now in the hall on 13, 14 and 15 December with 01 to then land on Rai1 (29 December).
Everything obviously starts from Naples where the three brothers live with their mother, Luisa De Filippo, but they have a problem not just: they have not been recognized by their father Eduardo Scarpetta (Giancarlo Giannini) who passes himself off as their “uncle”. In short, they are “the stepchildren” of that Scarpetta, rich and famous and true king of Neapolitan popular theater who, although not having recognized them as natural children, however, introduced them into his world. Everything precipitates with Scarpetta’s death because his extended family inevitably splits up: the legitimate children share his inheritance, while Titina (Anna Ferraioli Ravel), Eduardo (Mario Autore) and Peppino (Domenico Pirelli) are entitled to nothing.
