John Turturro: Naples, music and me

9 September 2010 2:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

My family is Sicilian and Naples has long held a fascination for me – for its beauty, its danger and above all its music. Passione is my attempt to put those feelings into film

My family is originally from Sicily and my father was from Puglia. My cousin Aida is half Neapolitan. Most of the Italians in New York are from Naples, Sicily and Calabria – the south. Naples itself reminds me a little bit of New York in the 70s, except everyone is crushed together more. It's so beautiful and so dangerous. It has a brutality, but also a sense of poetry – plenty of writers have lived there and written about it. Neopolitans have their own language and, most importantly, the people are unbelievably musical. The relationship between classical and popular music goes back a long, long time. Many classical musicians (and some great opera singers) have sung popular Neapolitan songs throughout the years. »
