BIOGRAPHY OF DONATELLA FINOCCHIARO
Donatella Finocchiaro was born in Catania on November 16, 1970, where, after the classical diploma, he attended the Faculty of Law, above all for the will of his father. While absorbed in her academic studies, she decides to indulge in a few moments of leisure, cultivating a passion for theater and taking dance, singing and acting lessons. At this moment, a path begins for Finocchiaro that will soon lead her to confront a reality from which she will hardly be able to escape, in fact in 1996 she arrives in Rome, where makes its grand debut at the Teatro dell’Orologio, spending six months in the capital. Unfortunately, however, she is forced to return to her homeland to finish her exams, but she easily manages to make university life coincide with her theatrical commitments and, while preparing the thesis, takes part in the auditions for admission to the Teatro Stabile of Catania, which he will enter a short time later. After graduating, she is introduced by her father to a law firm, but the young Donatella is not slow to understand that legal affairs are not the path she wants to travel all her life, so she abandons the practices to dedicate body and soul to the stage.
And from the stage to the big screen the jump of the Finocchiaro is not that long, thanks to Roberta Torre, which, after noticing her at casting for Angela (2002), he decides to entrust her with the leading role. She is a woman from Palermo who, together with her husband, a Mafia boss, runs a drug trade and other illicit business, hidden by an apparent shoe shop. Angela, however, will fall madly in love with another little criminal, who puts his heart and his life in serious confusion. The film participates in the Cannes Film Festival and is subsequently presented at various international reviews, which are worth the actress, in addition to critical acclaim, many awards, starting with the Golden Globe as a revelation to the nominations for the David di Donatello, the Nastri d ‘silver and at the Tokyo International Film Festival for Best Female Performance. The following year he is already on his second film work with Lost love (2003), directorial debut of Franco Battiato, followed by the comedy If I’m honest (2004) and the dramas Love me (2005), Secret journey (2006) and Don’t make plans tonight (2006). In these years he began a collaboration with the director Marco Bellocchio, which will give birth in 2006 to two films: Sisters is The wedding director with Sergio Castellitto, which will allow her to win the second Golden Globe and a candidacy for David.
Finocchiaro’s film career seems to have been smoothed out from the beginning, it has just begun and has already been amply crowned by many awards both in main and secondary parts. It continues without even a halt, covering the unkempt clothes of a homeless man next to Raoul Bova in The flame on the ice (2005) and returned to talk about the mafia in The sweet and the bitter (2007). Certainly one of Finocchiaro’s greatest successes in recent years remains Gentlemen (2008), where, mindful of the beginnings, she is again an undercover mafia woman. A role that seems to bring luck to its interpreter, who receives the Anna Magnani Award at the Bif & st and an award at the Rome International Film Festival. To these are added in 2011 the Flaiano Award and the Silver Ribbon for Never Sisters (2010), third collaboration with Bellocchio. In the meantime he also devoted himself to the small screen, where he made his debut with the miniseries ‘O professor (2008) and where he often covers parts of criminal women, such as that of the terrorist Adriana Faranda in Aldo Moro – The president (2008).
In 2011 he also approaches directing with the documentary Roundtrip, a celebratory look at his Catania, in particular in the last years, the Eighties and Nineties, thanks to the tales of the artists who have made it great. After this brief directorial parenthesis, Finocchiaro is back in front of the camera for the Tower – which had brought her to success – this time with The kisses never given (2010). Some comedies with sentimental implications follow, such as Love manual 3 (2011) with Carlo Verdone, or more comedians, like Without art or part (2011) with Vincenzo Salemme. Yet the best of himself always seems to give it with more dramatic roles – often also set in his Sicily – and this is how his interpretation receives yet another nomination to the David and the Nastri with Land (2011). A very talented actress with a reputation that established itself in a short time, it is not surprising that she was chosen to complete the Italian cast of To Rome with Love (2012) of Woody Allen, nor that he took part only two years later in his first American film, War Story (2014) of Mark Jackson, although already in 2011 it appeared in War Horse of Steven Spielberg.
It subsequently continues to be directed by Italian directors in comedies that address important issues, such as that of extended families in My Dad (2014) of Giulio Base is Solo (2016) of Laura Morante, and that of the little treasures of life in All that you want (2017) of Francesco Bruni. In 2018 she is the mother of the young woman Matilde De Angelis in Youtopia, dramatic film with Alessandro Haber who sees the girl sell her virginity with the painful consent of her mother to be able to pay the mortgage.
