NON MI BASTA IL SUCCESSO PIÙ

FOR ME, SUCCESS IS NO LONGER ENOUGH
by Massimo De Lorenzo
Country: Italy
Year: 1998
Duration: 10'15


A television special dedicated to one of the most famous composer-singers of modern times - Rocco Pecora. The artist tells the story of his work, his life, and his passions and presents his latest successful video clip - I'looking for you. He protests against a society of tyrannical plagiarizers who do not aknowledge his art. "Rocco is a character that grew out of the cabaret. It is an attempt to tell the story of the qualities of showing off and being full of themselves that some personalities from show business, tv, and politics put on. The ridiculous aspect that accidentally comes out from their taking themselves too seriously and that they are firmly convinced that they are always saying and doing something that is unique and great" (Massimo De Lorenzo).
