everyone is watching you” do “and I’m used to write, to sit in the back

rows of the orchestra rehearsals. Amelio, however, understand me

very well and he gave me only the day before the scene to learn for the

next day.We have established a beautiful relationship , we see each

means that it’s the memory of the viewer to compose the unit.” As a
