Camilleri according to Camilleri: Camilleri as a professor at CSC, Inspector Montalbano, RAI, his literary work, scripts, theatre work and narrative thought. The newest issue of «Bianco e nero» is a 360-degree exploration of the life and works of Andrea Camilleri, the most resounding Italian publishing success of the last 30 years. In 1994 (at 69 years of age!) Camilleri, a professor at CSC, RAI employee, producer of legendary TV series such as “Il tenente Sheridan” and “L’ispettore Maigret” and director of hundreds of radio programs, publishes a novel with Sellerio Editore, “La forma dell’acqua”, where the character of Inspector Montalbano, who works in the imaginary Sicilian town Vigàta, is born. From its success, that spread from Italy to the whole world, stemmed the now beloved TV series. «Bianco e nero», includes writings and interviews of various friends and colleagues of Camilleri’s (including Luca Zingaretti and Michele Riondino, the two actors who starred as Montalbano), essays on all facets of his work and career and a long interview to the author (both written and recorded, dvd included) by Felice Laudadio.
