Franco Zeffirelli was born in Florence in 1923 and, after grad- uating from the local School of Fine Arts, he began his career in the film industry as an assistant d i r e c t o r f i r s t , w o r k i n g w i t h artists the likes of Visconti, Rossellini, Antonioni, and De Sica. In 1968, he obtained his first Academy Award nomina- tion as Best Director for Romeo and Juliet. Among his produc- t i o n s a r e a l s o I l g i o v a n e Toscanini (1988), Storia di una C a p i n e r a ( 1 9 9 3 ) , U n t è c o n M u s s o l i n i ( 1 9 9 9 ) , C a l l a s F o r e v e r ( 2 0 0 2 ) , O m a g g i o a Roma (2009), and the 6-episode TV colossal Gesù di Nazareth (1977), starring Robert Powell. Since the 1950s until the pre- sent day, Zeffirelli's mark can b e a l s o a n d m o s t l y f o u n d i n major opera theaters worldwide as a guarantee of quality, ele- gance, and respect for both the music and the artists. Toscanini, Giulini, Kleiber, Prêtre, Levine, and Bernstein are just some of the conductors he collaborated with, in order to realize unfor- gettable masterpieces, featuring legendary singers such as Maria Callas, Renata Tebaldi, Joan S u t h e r l a n d , R e n a t o B r u s o n , Placido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti, just to name a few.

Pensiamo immediatamente alla moda, al design, all'arte rina- scimentale che mezzo mondo ci invidia. Ma non pensiamo alle eccellenze meno "popolari". Eppure sono proprio le persone a fare la differenza con la loro intelligenza, le loro competenze, capacità, intuizioni e professiona- lità a costruire poco alla volta la nostra reputazione. Il buon nome dell'Italia siamo noi tutti a farlo crescere
