Personal Quotes (1)

[on his working as an assistant to director Luigi Zampa] Zampa taught me so much. At the same time he terrified me because I was extremely shy while he had a forceful and extroverted nature. I kept thinking to myself, "I'll never be able to do this job! I'll never have the strength that he has!" Every time he called me, I used to blush and start to shake for no reason.
