“Right now, they are a disaster: a full-time mom, including games, diapers, feedings and sleepless nights. But I chose to have a nice family and despite the fatigue, I am very satisfied with my life. ” The actress Catanese Tiziana Lodato – we have recently seen in the movies in Donatella shoes, wife of Salvo Ficarra in the film Let’s go to that country – has no doubt about its priorities. Birthing fresh of his second son, Raffaele , born December 16, Tiziana lives in Rome with her husband Luca and the other son Giuliano , aged four, and has decided to focus on private life than work. This has led, in recent years, often changing city to follow her husband’s movements, pharmaceutical executive, and some even say “no” when the work would take her too far away from his men. To be with them. Tiziana Lodato has, several times, pausing his career, one that began 20 years ago with a bang or a leading role in the film Giuseppe Tornatore’s “The stars of” Man includes major roles in films including others, with Vittorio De Sisti, Maurizio Sciarra, Giulio Manfredonia, Franco Battiato and Emanuele Crialese .
Tiziana, it was not difficult to take these breaks from the set in the very years highlight of your career?
“I admit I do not enjoy having to say no, but I really wanted this family and I will not deny that I’d also like to have a third child, also if I clash with the harsh reality that this is not a country for mothers. New mothers, in all sectors, are seen as unable to work and breastfeeding regarded as an obstacle. In any case, even if it is rather difficult, when I can I try to reconcile. ”
In fact you shot the film “Let’s go to hell” while you were pregnant …
“When I started shooting I did not know of it and start my pregnancy went well. Immediately after the end of filming, however, it became very painful and I began to feel terrible. ”
It was your first play. How was working with Ficarra and Picone?
“They are two very serious professionals. At first I thought, mistakenly, that I would find a sparkling and ambient light, instead I found a seriousness and professionalism crazy. The part spontaneous, definitely, but there is behind their comedy there is a great preparation, a painstaking job. Then the two of them complement each other, are exactly as they appear in public. Valentino is a good and is incapable of getting angry, Salvo is very direct and fumantino. It was great to see how one went on ranting and the other passed behind apologizing for him. ”
Let’s go back to private life. You got married in 2005, what is the secret of a marriage that works?
“I think that anyone who can not say anything other than patience. Not only by women, but by both spouses. They fight, you can have differing opinions, but when you want to get together the problems are overcome. I say it with all the strength of one who wants to keep his family with nails and teeth. ”
It almost seems like a warning. There is a hint of jealousy in these words?
“In fact they are not at all jealous because the work of my husband would make me crazy. How would I check with who and where? And then the phone numbers that I find everywhere … trust me. There is no other way. And I must say that even he is jealous. I’ll joke a bit ‘up, especially when working with some handsome actor, but he just would not falls. Some time ago, for example, I worked with Gabriel Gargo and when I got home I said: today I kissed Gabriel, but he … nothing. Even the idea that I was on the set with him in guêpière troubled him. ”
Very jealous, at first, it was then your mother, when I called Giuseppe Tornatore for your debut.
“Well, the fact I started working at 17 years old and I left with just the nudity did not go down and It not reassured even the fact that it was a very serious filmmaker. I did my own thing anyway. Today, though, at 38, almost the age that she had then, I realize that his concerns were not exaggerated. I was a little girl and I ventured into an unknown world to my family. I think if I had a daughter, I would act the same way. ”
How has Tiziana from seventeen?
“I became a wife and mother and I grew as an actress. From the point of view character, however, they are always the same. My head and I have to say that I’m not whipped my family also gives little weight to the fact that I am an actress. For them I do a job like any other. Rather. Often, my mother just forget to go see my movies. ”
Who do you consider your greatest teacher?
“It may seem redundant but I can not say anything other than Giuseppe Tornatore. Even today I remember all his words, as gospel. Maybe because I was still young girl, and I absorbed like a sponge. ”
You have a model actress who inspires you?
“I love neorealism. One that I loved was Mariangela Spalato, he has left a great void in the theater and in the Italian cinema. Among other fond Margherita Buy. Always impeccable. ”
Is there any director in particular with the few you like to work?
“When I participate in some short film festival I happen to know many young new talent with which collaborerei very happy.”
At the beginning you also did theater. It is a world that you have left at all?
“This is always a choice linked to the family, even more so now that I have children. The tours would take me too far and are too demanding. Some time ago, the Catania Stabile had called me to a very important project to which I weighed a lot to give up, but coincided with my mother’s illness that could not have been occupied by Giuliano. And I, unfortunately or fortunately, I can not leave my son with strangers. ”
Do not you take help from anyone?
“Let’s say a little ‘help not disdain but I will, however, be me. I can not delegate. ” A few years ago he lived for a while ‘in America, following your husband in his work. You were not attracted by the Hollywood dream? “Somebody told me so, but I was fresh fresh young bride and I preferred to sit quiet. I do not know how to explain it, but when I met Luke tripped something that has totally changed me and made me revise my priorities. Before I was a single girl who had many friends, he went out, went for cocktails and absolutely no thought to raise a family. ”
You did not think of getting married?
“No one thought. Even when I was shooting a film in which I wore the wedding dress and my father came to Palermo to see me because he believed it would be the only time that I would have worn. Instead, I met my husband in January to September we informed everyone that we would get married in December, in Lecce, I did just the classic white wedding dress. ”
Do not you regret not signing married in your city?
“I love Catania, but they are not a deeply tied to places. Of my land I miss my family, my parents, my three sisters and my nephews. They are all in Sicily and I admit that I am very sorry not being able to raise my children surrounded by relatives, perhaps passing the classic family Sundays. “
