Lunedì 4 febbraio 2019 alle 18.30 ora di New York, presso la Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò della New York University, si terrà la presentazione del libro “Non volevo diventare un boss” di Salvatore Esposito, noto per interpretare Genny Savastano nella serie tv Gomorra. L’evento sarà coordinato da Rosario Procino di “Ribalta“, insieme ad Alessandro Iovino. Sarà presente l’autore.
Salvatore Esposito became famous playing the role of Genny Savastano in the TV series Gomorrah. But who lies behind those cold and heartless glances? Perhaps someone who grew up in close contact with the degradation and crime represented on screen, thus offering such a convincing portrayal? In this book, Esposito decided to tell his story, because he feels that his personal life has something particular that can offer inspiration to everyone, especially younger generations. Salvatore was brought up without means and had to learn at an early age to take care of himself. However, unlike many of his peers, he stayed away from the easy earnings offered by the Camorra, turning his attention to school, honest work, and – after a while – an irrepressible passion for acting. At the time, Salvatore was working at a McDonald’s, but thanks to his determination, humility, and a dose of sacrifices, he was able to make his dream come true. Non volevo diventare un boss contains a very important and positive message to the younger generations: do not go looking for shortcuts, but pursue your passions. At the same time, the book is an homage to Naples, the city that gave him so much and that is many more things than its association with the Camorra: the kindness of its inhabitants, its music and theater, and the simple courtesy of a suspended coffee.
