In 2020 Elio Germano won the Silver Bear for Best Actor at the seventieth edition of the Berlinale playing the role of the great painter Ligabue in the film I wanted to hide from Giorgio Rights. A great film (broadcast this evening at 10.00 pm on prime time TV on Rai 3) which has once again highlighted his indisputable and immense acting ability. And how better to get to the 40-year milestone than holding yet another statuette that testifies to how good you are? Germano was born in Rome in 1980 and his parents are originally from Duronia in the province of Campobasso. His first interpretation was in 1988 for the pandoro Bauli television commercial, in 1995 he appeared in the Kinder Bueno commercial. We have to wait for his 13 years and the role of Cotoletta in the comedy by Castellano and Pipolo You broke us dad for the first interpretation. Acting enters his life early, in fact, while attending scientific high school, he attends the Teatro Azione school and finds an important teacher in Giancarlo Cobelli. Waiting for him, around the corner, is a set by the Vanzina brothers who entrust him with the part of the protagonist in Heaven in a Room, a successful film that brings him to the attention of filmmakers of the stature of Ettore Scola who in 2001 calls him to play the son of Diego Abatantuono in Unfair Competition.
