Checco Zalone’s Amore+Iva tour opened yesterday, November 8, with an extraordinary success with the public at Palazzo Wanny in Florence. In front of three thousand spectators who sold out for the first of a long series of dates throughout the peninsula, the comedian ranged between current issues, with his usual comedy that mixes the high and the low, social and political satire to the demented.

The public particularly appreciated the parody of a Vladimir Putin grateful to Italy for having dedicated a city to him, Putignano, in Puglia, when not even in Russia there is one that bears his name. Some references also to the Italian situation, with a joke about “Meloni’s time”. And then the homage to Florence, the best place to start from because it is “the city of the Medici, and my name is Luca Medici”, but also because “it is the homeland of the vernacular and I modestly built a palace on vulgarity”.
