Memory now plays so many tricks on us that we shouldn’t be too surprised by our difficulty in remembering the winners of all the editions of the Big Brotherthe longest running reality show in Italy which, over the years, has changed the lives of many contestants – including Luca Argentero, Laura Torrisi, Eleonora Daniele, Filippo Bisciglia and Alessandro Tersigni – bringing all the others into oblivion. With ever-increasing times and a notoriety that was previously much more difficult to vanish overnight, one wonders what the Big Brother can give today in light of what he managed to give in the past to all those perfect strangers who hoped that their lives would change.
