In Italy we have some inestimable talents of dance, appreciated and admired all over the world, but in our country for nothing valued …
This is because there are no adequate laws, which go to support dance companies, emerging dancers and choreographers or theaters that promote the art tersicorea.
Big names like Roberto Bolle, have become famous abroad, to then be hailed also in Italy, if so ‘had not been, perhaps today Roberto Bolle would be one of the many Italian dancers with extraordinary skills, put in oblivion!

Here we have a queen, unfortunately without a crown, called Carla Fracci, one of the most famous and important dancers in the world, she danced with the greatest protagonists of the dance of all time, from Rudolf Nureiew to Vladimir Vasiliev, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Erik Bruhn …
yet, having reached the venerable age of 80 years played, 82 to be precise, Carla Fracci, who still amazes dancing on the tips and not caring for the passing years, is left in a closed and forgotten trunk of a disused theater .. .
It is really absurd and incomprehensible how our country takes the value of its artists.

A precious character like Carla Fracci should be crowned Empress, made senator for life to honor a life dedicated to the art of dance, should direct the most prestigious theater in Italy, have a dance company, be called as an absolute judge in the tv talent, instead of calling improvised and incompetent people! But this is how our country works, which then suddenly just a character passes to a better life make it become immortal and they hate it as they never did when he was alive!
Is there anything normal and logical in this all-Italian system? Absolutely not!
It’s all irrational and illogical, sometimes far-fetched … yet this is the reality of the facts!
For years, Fracci complains that she has been forgotten by the institutions of her country and that she desires her own dance company and a theater to direct herself, but her request remains unheard!
Maybe it would do well to leave Italy and move abroad, as did many other Star and Dive of Italian cinema and entertainment, one of them all Sofia Loren.
But let’s look back together the career of this great dancer named Carla Fracci … just to pale a bit ‘in his presence and really realize who we are talking about!
