Friday 26 June is the day of the last episode on Rai1 de Live Life with Lorella Cuccarini to the conduction. His forced farewell due to sovereign sympathies that have never had anything to do with his success sparked an uproar: in September there will only be Alberto Matano at the helm of the program, thanks – say the gossips – to its proximity to the 5 Stars. Having been purged by Rai, despite the excellent work done, Cuccarini wanted to let off steam with her colleague, with whom the relationship has never been idyllic. “I made many programs – he wrote in a letter sent to colleagues and then leaked -, but I never drove a hellish car like this”.
Then the reference to Matano, even if he never explicitly names him: “There is a first time I was not prepared for, the comparison with the unbridled ego and with the unsuspected male chauvinism of a work colleague. Male chauvinism exercised more or less subtly, but constantly and with determination. Sometimes alternating with never believed public declarations of esteem towards me “. Despite everything, Cuccarini considers herself lucky for two reasons: “In recent months I have had the privilege of being able to do real public service and because, in all my life, I have known abuse of this type only now, at 55 years of age. Nothing compared to many women who have experienced this reality right away without even having the strength to oppose or talk about it “.
