“They wanted me mayor of Rome, I said no”

The news they offered me to be mayor is true. A few years ago, they asked me if I wanted to apply, and they also showed me surveys with frightening results: they were approaching 70% “. Carlo Verdone, presenting the series today at the Rome Festival ‘Life as a Charles’ in which the protagonist, played by the same Roman actor, is proposed a candidacy for mayor of the city. “I refused – says Verdone – In life you can only do one job well, I know how to do this”. To be mayor “you need passion and preparation. And then why abandon the job I started in 71 in a university theater?”, Added the actor.

The new mayor of Rome is Roberto Gualtieri. “I don’t know him, we’ll see. I think the main thing about a mayor is to surround himself with a very quick and honest team. I hope he will have this luck, but above all I hope he breaks down all the bureaucratic barriers of this city because this city is screwed by bureaucracy “, said Verdone, recalling an anecdote:” I had to shoot a scene from the ‘Vita da Carlo’ series on the Janiculum. I asked Raggi for authorization and she replied that there were three superintendents to consult. Possible? The lightning that struck Garibaldi’s statue struck it six years ago. Why do we always have to make such a bad impression on tourists? “.

Among the other priorities of the city, according to the popular Roman actor and director, “there is maintenance, you have to get it started quickly. And then the suburbs, which are abandoned, transport, recreational activities for children and the elderly”.
