Saturday 13th November Lady Gaga returns to Milan for the Italian premiere of House of Gucci. And for sure at the cinema The Space Odeon will conquer all the flashes as it did a few days ago – wearing a fluttering purple chiffon dress – at the London preview. The red carpet, for fans of the diva she plays Patrizia Reggiani (accused of having commissioned the murder of her husband Maurizio Gucci in Milan in 1995) is expected at 7pm. Then, the next day, the star will be hosted by Fabio Fazio in What’s the weather like.

For Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (her stage name was copied from a Queen song, Radio Ga-ga), the Italian preview will certainly have a special flavor. Because for her, born in New York to Sicilian parents, “Making this film was the experience of a lifetime”: “Every minute, every day I thought about my ancestors in Italy, and what they had to do for give me a better life. I wanted them to be proud ».

Lady Gaga is very attached to her Italian roots, and remembers it with pride whenever she can. His parents – Joseph and Cynthia – ‘on Sundays they prepared the sauce with meatballs listening to Frank Sinatra ». Then they also opened an Italian restaurant in New York. Specialty, of course, meatballs. While Miss Germanotta she loves making tomato sauce. It adds fennel, rosemary, oregano and leeks, its secret ingredients.

The diva has repeatedly said that her ancestors left in the early 1900s from Naso, in Sicily, to the United States, in the hope of a better life. In January 2018, on the occasion of the only date of his Joanne World Tour at the Assago Forum, in Milan, Miss Germanotta met a representative of relatives who came from Naso. “Today is a special day for me because my family has reunited for the first time”, he later told from the stage, “They came all the way from Sicily to meet me and this moved me a lot and made me think of my grandfather, when he left Italy to come to America, leaving everything behind, including such a wonderful country ». In 2019, during one of his strictly sold-out international concerts, another declaration of love to the Bel Paese: «I don’t care how successful it can be, but I always remember that my family emigrated from Italy. My grandmother sold clothes for pennies and my grandfather was a cobbler. After all, I’m an Italian American girl “. Unforgettable, then, the time he greeted the Rai1 journalist Vincenzo Mollica with a “Thank you, sir”. While on the night of the 2019 Oscars he spoke in Italian to our correspondent.

Last May then, leaving Rome at the end of the filming of House of Gucci, posted touching words on Twitter: “I would like to thank all of Italy for supporting me during the shooting of the film: I hug you and kiss you, I believe in you, I pray for my homeland, a country built on the promise of hard work and family. I hope I have made you proud. I am proud to be Italian ».

Lady Gaga at only 35 is a planetary diva who can boast of having won a Oscar (with the song Shallow, contained in the soundtrack of the film A Star Is Born) e sold 28 million albums. But he does not forget his roots. So much so that in the house she has “many objects” that remind her of Sicilian origins: “Starting with the Sicilian cart that I keep on the bedroom dresser».
