FRED

The picture of Fred Buscaglione is frozen in an untouchable icon, as it happens to Marilyn Monroe, James Dean and all the artists who died young and violently. To boost his myth, the memories of a golden period of Italian recent history: the Fifties.

Without undermining his legend we indeed approach the man, we discover his good and weak points through the stories of people who shared with him that adventure on the long, difficult way leading to the short success. Behind the gangster mask of an ironic and bully young man singing bizarre songs he hid his shyness and great musical skills.
