In addition to being a great actor, Lino Capolicchio was blessed by living during a unique era in Italy: the Sixties and Seventies. This was a time in which the world witnessed an unprecedented ethical and aesthetic revolution, affecting every aspect of human life from politics to philosophy, from cinema to music, from art to theatre, from literature to architecture. Throughout those fabulous years, Lino Capolicchio was, first and foremost, an iconic figure, a role that is clearly painted in his memoir, which offers touching and flawless evidence of this, especially through his brilliant analyses of certain extraordinary encounters, such as those with Sergio Tofano, Giorgio Strehler, Anna Magnani, Vittorio De Sica, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Federico Fellini, The Beatles, Carmelo Bene and Fabrizio De André.
