After the great controversy over the postponement to a later date of the fiction that sees him as a protagonist, for electoral reasons, sergio Castellito talks to “Sette” from Corriere della Sera and gives his opinion on the character General Carlo Alberto Dalla Chiesa who went to interpret for the fiction that will be broadcast on four nights on Rai1, after the elections: “I always had the impression that he was barely tolerated by the political class. He was a naive hero and he didn’t hide.”

The words of Sérgio Castellitto

Sergio Castellitto explained that one of the reasons why he wanted to play this character so important to the history of our country was to explain it to his son Cesare, now a teenager:

Who was? My son Cesare also asked me. I answered him like this: he was a servant of the State. Like Falcone, Borsellino, Chinnici, like so many policemen, carabinieri, magistrates killed by criminal powers. Of the Church he belonged to the ranks of men animated by a strong sense of duty and by a discretion which seems blasphemous in these immoderate times. People like him are engines that are no longer built. They didn’t make jokes and I don’t think they would use Twitter or Instagram today. Their language was silence, study, work. He fought banditry, terrorism, the mafia. Where there was lawlessness, he came to fight it. An Avenger of Justice, if I had to explain that to a teenager today.

General Dalla Chiesa and politics

In this quote there is a reference to General Dalla Chiesa opposed by the political class of the time. Today his fiction is not aired for electoral reasons: he is the father of Rita Dalla Chiesa, a candidate for Forza Italia. For these reasons, many controversies and doubts have arisen, such as those raised by Rita Dalla Chiesa’s brother, Nando Dalla Chiesa: “My sister is already famous” he said to Today, “doesn’t need more publicity”. These are the words of Sergio Castellitto:

I always had the impression that Dalla Chiesa was supported at most by a good part of the political system of the time. That some of the rulers of the time knew that we had to count on him, but feared his respect for the State, which was, first and foremost, a sense of responsibility and autonomy. When she asked for special powers in her roles, she did so not out of vainglory, but because she knew that this was the condition for facing the ubiquity of politics and its tendency to condition, restrain, deflect.
