«We must not think only of the past, because the past is very nice, very exciting, full of beautiful things. But we must look ahead to the future of young people». Italy's great ballet star Carla Fracci talks about her life as a woman and as an artist, starting from childhood, when with her father she used to dance tango and waltz. She tells us about the sacrifices she had to face to be chosen, about discipline, about relationship with her partners and the importance of keeping your feet on the ground, because «everything can only be achieved through honesty and loyalty to one’s own work, having a pretty face is not enough».
Carla Fracci, ballerina from Milan, started dancing at the school of La Scala in Milan: from there begins the journey that will bring in the most prestigious theaters in the world. She performed with some of the most influential dancers of the twentieth century: Nureyev, Vassiliev, Amodio and Bruhn. She directed the corps de ballet of the Arena di Verona and of the Teatro dell'Opera in Rome and in 2003 the Italian government gave the honors of Dame Grand Cross of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic.
