"I'm sorry my sentence was misinterpreted, I was misunderstood." (HANDLE)



(ANSA) - ROME, JANUARY 16 - "I am sorry that my sentence has been misinterpreted, I have been misunderstood".
At ANSA Amadeus tries to throw water on the fire of the controversy raised by the words he addressed - during the Sanremo conference - to Francesca Sofia Novello, girlfriend of Valentino Rossi, one of the women who will share the stage with him. Presenting her, he said that "he chose her for beauty, but also for her ability to be next to a great man, taking a step back". Claims that set fire to isocial, with the multiplication of accusations of superficiality and dysessism.
"That 'step backwards' - explains Amadeus - was referring to Francesca's choice to stay out of the spotlight that inevitably are aimed at a champion like Valentino.
Another girl might have been able to 'ride' a lot of popularity and instead Francesca chose to be more discreet, to remain more secluded. Among other things, Francesca herself thanked me, saying that it is just like this: 'Love, it seems that you have known for years'. She too was amazed at the controversy. "Moreover, she stresses," I would have said the same thing about the companion of a famous woman ".
The artistic director claims "sensitivity and respect for women as my wife, mother and daughter can testify". In general, he adds, "I have always had great attention to women's issues: it is no coincidence that I wanted different women on the stage, with stories, roles, professions, different experiences". Among the themes that will be touched on at Ariston, there is no laughter on women, which on stage will not only involve - as announced - Rula Jebreal: "There will also be space for the testimony of ordinary people: I invited Gessica Notaro (Rimini lashowgirl scarred by acid in 2017 by ex-boyfriend Edson Tavares, ed) and there is a good chance that it will happen. " (HANDLE).
