De Martino today conductor and comedian explains why he abandoned dance
Stefano De Martino today he is one of the most sought after conductors and influencers. His career started out as dancer finding fame thanks to Maria De Filippi. Today he has now abandoned that career to devote himself to that of conductor and comedian. This summer we are seeing him as a protagonist around Italy together with Biagio Izzo and Francesco Paolantoni in a comedy show that is having a lot of success.
But why at some point he decided to make a change in his career by abandoning the world of dance? He explained it himself during an interview with Vanity Fair.
“I wasn’t extraordinary and I didn’t have the grace of an étoile. I had the professionalism and I held the job in my fingers, but let’s be honest and let’s face it: if I had stopped suddenly no one would have noticed “ – he said.
De rest also told him the same Alessandra Celentano in one of the many clashes with Amici: “Thank goodness you have embarked on another career” – She said. And Stefano De Martino is still getting some great satisfaction even in this new role. But before getting here, the path was rough and hard.
“In my path there was sacrifice, a desire to reach at any cost and a hunger for success that represented a social redemption. One thing is clear to me: the point is not getting to a goal, but how to get there. I came from a theatrical background and I found myself on TV having to unhinge, myself, a prejudice that, like all prejudices, is superficial and foolish. I became known, but not famous also because now the notoriety is given to you. I’m interested in creativity, writing programs. The construction process of which production and management are only the last steps. Perhaps the most mechanical of the entire marathon. It is a path that I have chosen to undertake in a very personal way and that I do not yet know where it will lead me “ – her words.
A comment on Maria De Filippi who believed in him is also due: “A person who sacrifices every other aspect of his life when working. Perfectionist to the point of maniacality, but always extremely true and natural that he answers the phone, drinks a coffee or leads” – concludes De Martino.
