Did You Know?

Trivia:

His career started as a TV standup, but his top trademark character, the low-profile accountant Fantozzi, was born as a book character when he started writing. Notwithstanding the big hit of the book and of the movie adaptation (and sequels), he was shunned in Italy by a big share of critics. Nevertheless, eventually the book gained him the Gogol Prize for humor literature in Russia. See more »

Trademark:

His trademark character is a low-ranked white collar, with a mediocre life and poor tastes, always mistreated by his superiors, to whom he speaks always in a servile posture and coarse voice.

Star Sign:

Capricorn
