BIOGRAPHY OF CATERINA BORATTO

Actress. Daughter of a hero of the Great War, she attended the musical high school in Turin, where she studied singing to fulfill her dream of becoming a light soprano. Her irrepressible shyness, however, prevents her from performing on stage, thus disappointing the expectations of Mascagni and Toscanini, who are among her most convinced admirers. In 1937, on the recommendation of the theater actress Evelina Paoli, the director Guido Brignone chooses her to play the protagonist of “Vivere!” alongside the tenor Tito Schipa, with whom an intense love story blossoms. To launch the film, the production invents the fact that Caterina is the daughter of Mussolini’s driver, Ercole Boratto. The newspapers believe the rumor and even the secretary of the Fascist Party, Achille Starace, falls into the misunderstanding. The success catapulted her into the universe of the divas of the “white telephone” season and the following year she was on the set of “Who is happier than me”, again by Brignone, and “They kidnapped a man” by Gennaro Righelli, in which he acts alongside Vittorio De Sica. Her fame comes overseas, earning her a seven-year contract with MGM: Louis B. Mayer intends to make the most of her singing skills and make her a new Jeannette McDonald. In America, between cocktails and English lessons, he had a fleeting relationship with Spencer Tracy, was lucky enough to meet Judy Garland and the novelist Francis Scott Fitzgerald, who at that time was under contract at MGM as a screenwriter. The Hollywood debut, however, is postponed from month to month. Due to the outbreak of the Second World War, Caterina decides to return to Italy by embarking in Rio de Janeiro and stopping in Spain where, mistaken for a spy, she runs the risk of being arrested. While he reappears on the big screen in successful melodramas such as Brignone’s “The novel of a poor young man” (1942), in which he is alongside Amedeo Nazzari, he settles in an unrecognizable Turin destroyed by bombing, where he meets and falls in love with the count Guidi di Romena, who died in December 1942 in a plane crash. Destroyed by pain, she manages to recover thanks to the support of De Sica, Giuditta Rissone and the producer Peppino Amato who offers her the adventure of “Campo de ‘Fiori”. On the set of the film he meets Anna Magnani and weaves a long and lasting friendship with Aldo Fabrizi and Peppino De Filippo. The war also takes away her two brothers: Renato, who fell during the partisan struggle, and Filiberto, who died in the massacre of Kefalonia. Unable to recover, he finds refuge at the Sanatrix, a luxurious Turin clinic, where he meets the owner, Armando Ceratto, marries him and remains at his side assisting the wounded and offering a hiding place to the president of Fiat, Vittorio Valletta, and to many partisan militants. After the birth of her two children, Paolo and Marina, her career takes a back seat and for about ten years she moves away from the big screen: only in 1951 Riccardo Freda convinces her to interpret another mélo, “The betrayal”. However, her marriage turns out to be difficult and, after her husband’s financial collapse, she returns permanently to Rome where she is offered only feuilleton scripts and swashbuckling films. In the winter of 1962 he accidentally crossed paths with Federico Fellini in via del Corso. Two days later the Rimini director telephones her to propose a role among his ‘ghosts’ of “8 ½”. It is for her the beginning of a second career that sees her work again with Fellini in “Giulietta degli spiriti”, but also with Alessandro Blasetti, Alberto Sordi, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Mario Bava, Sydney Pollack and Ettore Scola. In the last part of his career he also arrives at the theater, passing with ease from operettas to Pirandello, and to the small screen with the sit-com “Villa Arzilla”. He died in his home in Rome at the age of 95 after a long illness.
