Thursday evening on channel 5 the first of the opera that sees the swimmers act in a story of competitions and life directed by Bova. Manuel is also among the protagonists
Raoul Bova, before becoming a famous actor, at 16 was the Italian champion of the category in the 100 backstroke. Massimiliano Rosolino, Filippo Magnini and Emiliano Brembilla are the most decorated Italian champions. Manuel Bortuzzo was a talent, but on the night of February 3, 2019 he was the victim of an absurd ambush (hit in the legs by some gun bullets) that forced him into a wheelchair.
Starting from the suggestive idea of creating a record master relay, the 5 found themselves, involved by Bova – director with Marco Renda, screenwriter and producer – to act as actors in “The Last Race”, the film on Canale 5 on Thursday evening in prime time and viewing. Between uncertainties and fears, they decide to get involved to overcome themselves.
A film-metaphor. The story of those who never give up as a “team”, putting trust and courage in us despite the unexpected, like the tragedy of a crime that destroys the dreams of the youngest (Manuel). Solidarity and friendship between humble heroes will prevail over everything. “Swimming is a fantastic reservoir of lessons – says Bova -. No distractions are allowed in the water: you have to be deeply present to yourself, connected with your soul and patiently wait for the right moment ”.
