The Heroine’s Journey of Veronica Zucchi

What is the best thing that I love about my work? The possibility to become someone else, different and similar. So I can know better the shades of myself, and provoke my imagination. I most like to detect the character’s moment of truth, that give me a sense of wonder.
What is my idea of perfect happiness? A world without racism, exploitation, pain. A world with love, equality, knowledge, art, happiness.
What is my greatest fear? I’m afraid of distress and bitterness of people.
What is the trait that I most deplore in myself? Umorality, even if it’s also a reservoir of creativity, and laziness when I feel melancholic, that is often.
Which living persons in my profession do i most admire? I play theatre from eleven years with the theatrical director and writer Luca Archibugi. He has always fought to express his great talent and he dedicates all his time to this. I also admire Paolo Sorrentino for his courage and visionariness. Terrence Malick and Werner Herzog for their movies. Nicole Kidman for her ambiguity. Kate Winslet for her intensity. Charlotte Gainsbourg for her restlessness.
What is my greatest extravagance? When I have to go out, I have to prepare myself for a long time, and I’m inexorably late. And I like staying under the stars, in the terrace or everywhere, naked with a blanket, but it’s not so extravagant.
On what occasion would I lie? For good or for innocent fun.
What is the thing that I dislike the most in my work? The bad screenplays or scripts. Also, the remarkable inclination for gossip at all costs.
When and where was I the happiest, in my work? Three times: in Rome, when I play Justine in A vacuum shot and Eurydice in Orpheus banned at auction of Luca Archibugi; in Davos when I was on the Paolo Sorrentino’s Youth set for a close-up in the Hitler’s scene.
If I could, what would I change about myself? I would like to be less labyrinthine.
