1. You had a role as Priest in “SPECTRE“. Tell about your role and the filming of this movie.
It’s the priest celebrating the funeral of the husband of Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci). It’s a small role, just one scene, but to be in a Bond movie it’s always a “big role” in your life.

2. How was Sam Mendes as a director and Italian Bond lady Monica Bellucci as an actress in the same funeral scene with you?
It was the first day of shooting in Italy and Rome, everybody was a little nervous, but everything went well, I knew Mrs Bellucci from another film (“Sangue pazzo” by M.T. Giordana) so I didn’t have any problem to talk and act with her.

3. You are an actor, director and producer. Tell us about your other movies, which one was the hardest or the best project to do so far?

The best project is the last movie I’ve done this year “Antonio in Wunderland“, a german prod. by Bavaria and Fox Int. I had the main role of Antonio, we have been shooting two months in Germany and New York and was very hard to act in German. Of course the little role in “SPECTRE” is something unforgettable.

4.Your favourite Bond actor?
Sean Connery, he is the first and the only, by the way, Daniel Craig is not bad.

5. Your favourite Bond film? 
Goldfinger” (1964), the first I have seen.
