When an actor let himself be photographed. Antonio Folletto made his debut in theatres 9 years ago, in a comedy dedicated to Massimo Troisi. His most recent work, whose takes ended in 2016, is on TV in these weeks: Gomorra 2, an expected success. Folletto is resistant to social media, introverted and shy, but cheerful enough to be photographed – last autumn – without embarrassment and with irony for Style Magazine. His relationship with fashion is very free, without that mostly immotivate worries that many actors have (“Do I look ridicolous?”) and can complicate the making of the shooting. I don’t refer only to italian artists. Jeremy Irons, for example, is a nuisance. O’ Principe (The Prince, his character)/Folletto, that on screen plays his role just fine between a giant like Fortunato Cerlino/Pietro Savastano and the revelation-star Salvatore Esposito/Genny Savastano, on set selected classic and timeless clothes, with a little odd touches (a blazer with big black/white checks), the three-pieces suit, till the neo-existentialist charme of the turtleneck. The uniform of the cultured artist. Without sarcasm: Antonio Folletto is a great artist indeed. Ph. Stefan Giftthaler for Style Magazine.
