Happy 100 years dear Franco Zeffirelli

Dear readers, listeners, and fellow bloggers:

Good morning and Happy Sunday. Today we are celebrating the 100the anniversary of the birth of one of the greatest Italian theater and film directors of all times. Gian Franco Corsi Zeffirelli was born on February 12, 1923, in Florence and passed away on June 15, 2019, in Rome. He was well known for his extravagant mise en scène of the classical plays in his theater productions, which he repeated in his filmography.

Who will forget the magnificent 1968 film version of “Romeo and Juliet starring a very young Olivia Hussey? Didn’t you fall I love watching the screen… We did. Let’s us put a link to one of the most bewitching versions of its central theme “A time for us” composed by Rota and played by Joslin and Henry Mancini.  Here it is.

Close your eyes to allow its melifluous magic take over your spirit to refresh your hopes of Love  plus make some space for Dreams.

 Che bellezza!!! Da urlare!!!

Stay distant. Stay safe. Stay beautiful.

Don’t leave me alone.
