Favino recites Shakespeare at the traffic lights, the hilarious sketch from Fiorello on ‘VivaRai2!’

The actor and voice actor collects three euros from a motorist: “Culture pays”. The showman: “A scene that will remain in the annals of Italian TV”

The continues second week of ‘VivaRai2!’ in the company of Fiorello and his gang. Live from the ‘glass’ of the Foro Italico, the showman once again said good morning to all of Italy in his own way, with music, dance, good humor and above all an inevitable press review with the news of the day. The guest of this seventh episode was Pierfrancesco Favino. This time the actor and voice actor outdid himself: launched ‘on a mission’ by Fiorello, his task was to “bring culture to the street”.

And he did it starting from a traffic light in Lungotevere Diaz: first with a skull in his hand, in reference to Shakespeare. Then, when the red light came on, it was moved to the pedestrian crossing complete with a lectern and began to recite Leopardi’s ‘The Infinite’. A scene also replicated in the second instance, complete with the collection of ‘offerings’: “Culture pays”, joked Favino after collecting three euros from a motorist stopped at the traffic lights. Fiorello, who then welcomed the actor into the ‘glass’, had no doubts: “A scene that will remain in the annals of Italian television“.

Finally, Favino also joked about the controversy of American actors playing Italian characters, after the case of Adam Driver in ‘Ferrari’. “It’s as if we took Boldi to play Bush”, Fiorello’s closing line, while Favino’s ‘gimmick’ was to interpret the Italian anthem to the music of the American one, ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’.
