On March 13th in Italy will be published “La mia Brexit” (My own Brexit), my first book. It is the diary of an Italian comedian who decides to leave Italy and move to the UK, in the same moment as the UK decides to leave Europe. The publisher is Bompiani and the book is in Italian. Check it out anyway!
On the December 14th, Francesco will be on air with the first episode of “Tutta colpa della Brexit” his new-four-part series, focussed on his move to the UK during the Brexit negotiations and on his daily life in London.
It will be aired on Italian national broadcast channel Rai3. The original partly scripted documentary series will be told through a mix of observational comedy and Francesco’s real experiences, in which he will sift through the idiosyncrasies of Italian and British society: differences and commonality, food, alcohol, religion, sex, art, music, theatre and everything that will strike him from his new outsider’s perspective.
This Summer sees Francesco return to the Edinburgh Fringe with his brand-new show, Comfort Zone. Inspired by his recent adventures, the show is a wonderful mixture of personal and political stories, told with natural hilarious charm by a man who brings a uniquely personal take on the recent international political upheavals. He asks – in a time in which all around the world populist movements and xenophobic politicians are winning the elections, the value of democracy has been questioned – but in reality, is it that we actually just don’t understand people anymore?
