The actor and comic Germano Lanzoni: I used to be a buffoon within the vacationer cities

“I ship you the contact of the group supervisor, she is the one who manages my calendar”. That is how she responds, through WhatsApp, once we ask for an appointment for the interview. In spite of everything, the Milanese Imbruttito may have reacted in a different way (what else? would he say)? And, a few days later, right here is Germano Lanzoni, 55 years outdated, with a blue shirt, blue jacket, white tennis sneakers and a pleasant and mischievous smile.

Who solutions the questions? Germano or the Imbrutito?

“Let’s do Gegio’s reply.”


“It is my nickname. Everybody has known as me that since I used to be a child.”

The prettiest within the firm?
“I began being a buffoon late. I used to be born as a contact animator in a vacationer city in Crotone, the Casa Rossa».

The contact entertainer could be the one who torments the vacationers with the aperitif sport, the water gymnastics…

“Exactly. However there may be nothing higher than studying to narrate and divulge heart’s contents to folks. I had plenty of enjoyable in these years. Do you suppose that the village comic was Michele Foresta, the magician of the forest; and the musical half was in control of Silvano Belfiore, who at this time conducts the orchestra in Maurizio Crozza applications. That mentioned, my creative reference has all the time been dad».

Was he an actor?

“Under no circumstances, a employee. Exactly a splicer. A really good unrepentant womanizer. He had Tinder inside. Geared up with a form of pure gps to find the gorgeous women. And naturally court docket them. If throughout an intervention he recognized the condo of a beautiful woman, he intentionally sabotaged her telephone to obtain the decision and go to restore the “fault”. He sadly he’s gone. Do you suppose that someday within the hospital, already within the final weeks of his life and really outdated, he requested me to accompany him to the lavatory. He walked with problem connected to intravenous help. In the midst of the hall he instantly stopped and he mentioned to me in dialect, like this, out of nowhere: “Germano, they piasen me i dònn”. He really mentioned that he favored one thing extra particular, however the which means is that… he was the son of an unimaginable and really full of life Milan. For instance, he all the time instructed me the story of the rely ».

That claims?

A pal of his, poor ass, who borrowed fancy shirts and trousers after which went off to the Cova in through Montenapoleone making an attempt to snag some wealthy woman to marry to cool down. And that was precisely the way it was. Roughly: the one who later acquired married, she met on the tables of the Cova, she was a lady who had additionally lent him her garments… I all the time speak about these items in my exhibits».

«I carry out in two Milanese golf equipment nearly each week. The stage doesn’t hand over for any motive. I went to Marina Spreafico’s appearing college on the Arsenale, a wealth of data I do not need to hand over. I nonetheless have the 50,000 lira received (in black) framed with the primary present on the Derbyno in through dei Missaglia, paired with Gianfranco Balestrini. He was 25 years outdated and above all he wished to be good, not well-known».

And so?
“Then I did every one among them. Together with the looks in Drive in. You realize those who had been in the midst of the vehicles and needed to snort on the jokes? I used to be one among them. Sometimes somebody acquired kicked out as a result of he did not snort onerous sufficient. Then, someday, radio Deejay contacted me to current the stage for a touring tour in Piazza del Cannone in Milan. It was the eve of my trip in Greece with Paola, my girlfriend on the time. I instructed her; “Simple, a few afternoons and I will accompany you on the seashore.” As a substitute, I have never stopped for 47 days. And Paola, inevitably, left me.

The radio, one other nice ardour.
“I owe quite a bit to RDS.”


«New 12 months of 1999. The one of many passage of the millenium. On December 31 I’m in Rome. They name me on the radio: “Prepare, tonight it’s important to be within the Piazza Duomo in Milan for the countdown. You may be dwell on Canale 5. You begin at 9pm. I take a aircraft operating. There was no script, there was no schedule. I went up on that stage with 100,000 folks in entrance of me and I needed to improvise.

“Nicely, at that second the vacationer village entertainer in me got here out. And I began: “You would have been at residence with family! You would have been within the restaurant spending some huge cash on a prawn cocktail! However you’re right here! Thanks Milanoo!” At that time the delirium till midnight and past, all improvised.

Principally, a gown rehearsal of what you do at this time on the San Siro when Milan performs.

“Precisely. Besides that the primary time beneath the South nook was dramatic. It was the 12 months 2000. RDS was a associate of Milan and we administrators had the duty of entertaining the followers with some music earlier than the sport. Till that day it had Francesco Pasquali, however one Sunday, with the stadium already full, he determined to cross me the microphone. “Meet Gegio!”, he shouted. And the refrain began from the curve: “Sceeeemo, Sceeeeemo…” his smurf-colored shirt that made unrepeatable gestures at me from the stands. It has been bothering me all afternoon. I’ve by no means forgotten it and I’ll always remember it.”

In the present day the connection with the followers may be very totally different.
“And it’s lovely. They transfer me each time I learn the formations (I’ve completed it since 2002) I all the time find yourself shaking palms. And to suppose that I’ve by no means been a giant soccer fan, I’ve by no means performed it, I beloved basketball.”

The place are you watching the sport from?
“From the sector. And I do not perceive a lot of what is going on on. As soon as I did not even understand that that they had disallowed a purpose by Theo Hernández and after I noticed the ball within the web I began shouting: “Cooooon quantity 19 scored…” So instantly after, I needed to apologize.”

And what relationship do you may have with the gamers?

«They’re guys too younger for me and all the time tremendous targeted. Outdoors the San Siro I do not exit with any of them. However I keep in mind with pleasure Clarence Seedorf, who stopped operating throughout a pregame warm-up to return shake my hand. A pleasant gesture.”

How was Bruttito born?
“The thought comes from the three founders of the legendary Fb web page.”


«Under no circumstances: Marco De Crescenzio is from Taranto, Tommaso Pozza is from Padua and Federico Marchisio is from Varese. I used to be chosen after seeing some sketches of the Third Secret of Satire. They wanted somebody who may interpret the speech and tics of the Milanese.”

Lets give some examples of those tics?
“After all. Ugly whereas brushing his tooth, with the opposite hand he cleans the stays of toothpaste from the sink; whereas he closes the door of the home, on the identical time he calls the elevator; on the visitors mild he does not await the inexperienced one however he does click on when it’s pink for pedestrians; he by no means says no to an invite, however “I will meet you later”. And naturally he solely strikes by automobile and never with shuttles: metro, tram, bus…».

Her alter-ego is Giargiana.

“Exactly. Giargiana are all those that dwell on the outskirts of the ring highway. And who, going through the Imbruttito, don’t suppose solely and solely of the 2 “fs”: the place the second “f” means “rotation”.

In her sketches and within the movie “I go away all the things and open a seashore bar” Giargiana is performed by Valerio Airò.
“Unbelievable comic. He found himself as a result of along with his Piacenza accent he had auditioned for a movie and proposed to play the position of a Lucanian character. And there they mentioned: both he’s silly or he’s a genius. The second was proper.

However you, Germano Lanzoni often called Gegio, are you ugly in on a regular basis life?

“Once I’m within the automobile positively.”

And who is aware of what automobile…
«You’ll not imagine it however I’ve a Panda. As soon as on the visitors lights a man in a Volvo acknowledged me and mentioned: “Ue, ugly, what are you doing within the Panda?! A man such as you has to journey to Cayenne…’

However does he at the least dwell throughout the “ring highway”?
“Under no circumstances, I dwell in Brusuglio di Cormano. In an attic, it’s true, however in Brusuglio…».

“Whole. We lived with my mother and father in Milan, close to the Central Station. Then dad purchased this home outdoors the town and now I dwell there with my associate Lara Bogni, who’s a dancer, and our 15-year-old twins. They want us to we married after twenty years, greater than something for the occasion».

And can you marry?
“I defined to the ladies that I choose to spend 20, 30K to purchase a field.”

Reply that might have been given by the Dogui, or the legendary Guido Nicheli. Do you’re feeling inheritor to him?

“He was a really massive and ugly man. The distinction with me is that “Alboreto is nothing” I may have mentioned it even outdoors the set, chatting with buddies. As a result of that is the way it was in life. He would favor to be thought-about the inheritor to Giuseppe Moncalvo, an actor who courageously in 1800, in entrance of the Austrians who guarded the stage and infrequently took him to jail, performed the Meneghino, a historic masks that wears no masks. Identical to the Milanese Imbruttito».
