“Cyclone of the show, an icon of all generations”
He has written some of the most beautiful lyrics of Italian pop music and is always on the crest of the wave every television season. Cristiano Malgioglio is an iconic and transversal character loved for several generations. Exuberant and chameleonic on the Red Carpet, he recounts his career studded with successes, highlighting the side of him that is more introspective and sensitive than him.
No distinction between public and private
I am always natural, both in private life and on TV. For me it is important, and it is perhaps the key to my success. The people who know me know it well, I am spontaneous and I would not be able to split myself, only a director could make me do it, but for stage needs.
There are experiences that leave their mark more than others
The most significant change was the one experienced with Piero Chiambretti. I worked with him for three years and I really did everything I wanted to do at the beginning of my career. Piero gave me back the skin that I always wanted to have, to dare and do a certain type of show. I did anything with him: I became a little mermaid, a hotel manager, but above all I dared a lot with my irony. I loved working with Giletti on Rai1 so much where I was the “cattivo” in an armchair. Or in “I Raccomandati” with Carlo Conti, in which I was the only columnist. And then my working relationships with Mara Venier, Simona Ventura, with Barbara D’urso at Big Brother or with Marcuzzi. I’ve always enjoyed it. There are people I am very fond of, for example Amadeus, exquisite person.
