Thanks to Arturo Brachetti’s directorial insight, Matthias Martelli’s acting talent and Fabrizio Bosso’s musical talent breathe new life into Fred’s nocturnal world, full of women and cigarettes. Fred Buscaglione was the most innovative Italian musician during the 1950s, capable of blending American styles and jazz with our melodic tradition. Buscaglione was irreverent, histrionic, and doomed to an untimely death after crashing his pink Ford Thunderbird and consecrating his legend. He is one of Torino’s best-known citizens, an icon who left his mark on Italy’s culture and music history.
