On Friday 26 May, Rai 3 will broadcast Il traitore by Marco Bellocchio at 21.20. To interpret the protagonist, the pentito of Cosa Nostra Tommaso Buscetta, Pierfrancesco Favino. The actor, born in Rome on August 24, 1969, graduated from the Silvio D'Amico National Academy of Dramatic Art (Luca Ronconi and Orazio Costa were his teachers, while Fabrizio Gifuni was among his classmates and Luigi Lo Cascio). In 1991 Favino made his debut on television, in the film based on the novel by Beppe Fenoglio A private matter, while his debut on the big screen dates back to 1995, in the film Pugili by Lino Capolicchio. But why did he decide to devote himself to acting? I did it so as not to have to tell myself one day: you didn't try – he told Corriere in 2021 -. The girlfriend of the time was important, of my own I would have said no. I was a kid from three films a day, backpack on my shoulder I went to the Venice festival.
