The Florentine conductor has an enviable career, he can boast in his curriculum the conduction and direction of leading programs such as the Sanremo Festival for three editions 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Together with Amadeus, Paolo Bonolis and Gerry Scotti, he is probably the most successful currently active television host. It is no coincidence that (apart from the good Gerry, a Mediaset loyalist) everyone has also hosted the Sanremo Festival, considered the program that gives greater prestige (and income) to a TV presenter. But time passes for everyone. Even for someone like Carlo Conti.
The Florentine conductor was the artistic director and presenter of the San Remo Festival for the 2015, 2016 and 2017 editions. Furthermore, since 2017 he has been the artistic director of the Zecchino d’Oro. In short, a glittering career which clearly led him to become one of the most sought-after television hosts on the Italian scene.
Today 61 years old, Carlo Conti, in fact, is one of the best-known faces of Italian television. A career in RAI, where he conducted numerous highly successful broadcasts, both in the field of quizzes and entertainment. Exponent of that Tuscan school which, in that generation, also “gave” characters such as Giorgio Panariello and Leonardo Pieraccioni to television and cinema, with whom Conti himself is a very close friend. Host of several successful programs. Both concerning the theme of quizzes, but also of pure entertainment. From “L’Eredità” to “Tale e qual show”.
Stop the girls
“Time passes for everyone you know, no one will bring it back, not even us” sang the 883 in one of their great hits, “The Years”. And that’s right. Even for VIPs. For Carlo Conti, today is the time for medical visits. And for blood pressure control he chose to rely on a real specialist. After all, only the best when health is involved. “We used to spend our time talking about girls and cars… now about blood pressure and cholesterol 😂😂😂😂😂😂” the comment on the photo.
So here he is, smiling, entrusted to the care of his lifelong friend, Giorgio Panariello. Now 62 years old, Giorgio Panariello is an exponent of that “Tuscan current” which, in recent years, has had so much, so much success. Actor, television host and showman. A multifaceted artist who over the years has fully entered the homes of Italians.
Panariello has conducted several successful programs. We remember, among others, “I’ll be back on Saturday”. In the carnet of him, various characters, as well as imitations. The most successful, probably that of Renato Zero. In 2006 he was also artistic director, as well as host of the Sanremo Festival.
As mentioned, Panariello is part of that Tuscan school that has produced several television and film characters: Carlo Conti and Leonardo Pieraccioni, above all. Carlo Conti, on holiday in Vibo Valentia, in Calabria in 1986, meets Panariello while imitating Renato Zero and thus presents him in his program Succo d’arancia, where Leonardo Pieraccioni also makes his debut.
The three thus form a comic trio, which in Tuscany enjoys great success in theaters, in a show called “Fratelli d’Italia”. In addition to Renato Zero, among Giorgio Panariello’s most successful characters, we mention “Mario the lifeguard”, “Lello Splendor”, “Sirvano” and “Naomo”, the latter a parody of Flavio Briatore.
And today, good Giorgio has to look after his friend Carlo. How much time has passed since that summer of 1986 in Vibo Valentia…
