Wow! Maestro Micalizzi and his Big Bubbling Band!  ;)

I want to come but I don't think my wife and kids will let me! If I go to Italy that means there's no holiday for my kids!

These get better every year! I'll definitely be attending in 2009, I promise!

the 'almost official' flyer of Appuntamento a mano armata 2008  :'(

perhaps we will not have an official program... just this evening a great guest star has confirmed his presence, but I think that other great surprises could be...

don't miss the greatest 113 meeting of all times!

but you don't need so much money... if you dont' go in some shops  :D

cinema is free, disco is free, meeting is free, only the live concert is for 15 euros and full accomodation in hotel costs almost less to stay at home  :-\

The chance to see Milan Calibre 9 on the big screen is incredibly tempting. I'm just not sure we'll still be in Italy then...  :(

Can anyone enlighten me about the Lenzi book 'Delitto a Cinecitta' ? It's mentioned in the sunday schedule.

Lenzi says a few words about it in the interview :

http://www.cultfilmsenkutfilms.com/extras/umberto_lenzi.html

I went to the presentation of the book in an Italian bookshop in Brussels - had it in my hands - it's a small pocket book, about 200 pages.

i can't know how could be the quality of 35 mm of Milano Calibro 9 and napoli violenta, surely they belong from italian theathers

but... I'm almost sure that Milano calibro 9 on 35 mm is the only edition with the famous timer on the screen, I'm very curios  :'(

the book of lenzi is a romance but it tells about a true story of two actors at Cinecittà at the time of fascism in italy.... lenzi has a good feeling with the stories in 1920-1940 in italy and in spain

there was a good article about this book and his story last week on an insert of one of the most famous italian newspaper (La Repubblica)

i'm so sorry... that this meeting was ended  :(

two days and two nights full of movies, music, cars and over all... good people  :P

i didn't want to skip anything from 9.00 to 5.00 am ... but after 2 days I'm so tired yet

perhaps i have no more the right age  :-*

Looks good!  :)

With that mustache, Polla looks right out of a 70s EuroCrime film.  :)  He would have given Maurizio a run for best EuroCrime 'stache in the 70s.  ;)

It's a great image.  ::)  He's very talented!  ;)

When I googled Maurizio Merli  his picture was apparently the most viewed image and the best of those I was considering to post.  :P

Now I'm collecting the photos about AAMA... and I'm discovering people and situations that I've missed... i was too busy in these 2 days  :'(

yes the concert was great, this was the first for this season, but seems that in the next months Micalizzi will be in concert in theater in other italian cities... we found 2 date for him between june and july! Better than press-agents!

Now he's working about his Cinema a mano armata #2, with songs from La banda del gobbo, il giustiziere sfida la città, Hold-up... unfortunately he didn't play these songs in Cattolica

Umberto Lenzi is a great man... an young man aged 80 very present and a great memory... he remembered me for the 2° Gente di Rispetto Festival almost 10 years ago, always ready to speak about his life, his career and italian and european history, he was also saturday morning to the football match Pollanet Squad vs. Gente di Rispetto (8-7 with the golden goal  ::)), but when Lenzi find sincere people who want to have fun he's there to have fun with everybody, he wrote us some days ago to say that he had 2 great days and he wants to be with us also the next year... a great man.

Finally yes, I had mustache for the meeeting, 3 weeks to grow it but I can't hold it... something like 'urticaria' for me... I asked to Lenzi if i could be a 'caratterista' for his next movie... "Surely, of course! You have a very interesting face" he told me... "but I'm no more a director, only a writer..."  ???

And... as I wrote in the first post after AAMA, i was NOT the only person with jonny's Merli t-shirt.... there was only another boy with that t-shirt  :P

When i saw it i went to this boy, thinking that he was someone from lovelockandload!

but he wasn't  :( ... only an italian boy who found this t-shirt with google and then he bought it on line

If we can get a date out of him (or even a rough guess) for the next appuntamento a mano armata I'll start saving up for it now.

You don't want believe me!  ;D

italian Riviera in May is not so expensive... Pound is strong! (... not as US dollar for Mike Malloy  :D)

You don't need a lot of money for a trip in Italy... only if you want to clean a newsstand to get all his dvds  :-\

When you say the Boys Own crowd do you mean 'Junior Boys Own' the record label?

No matter the conversion rate, I'm sure it will be money well spent. I'm going to do my damnedest to make it next year, Pollanet. Hopefully, I'll be done with my documentary by then, freeing me up for travel (and maybe I could even screen the doc at your event). A high-powered producer's rep in Hollywood has taken an interest in the project lately, and hopefully that will fast track it.

Anyone plays football?

the football match Pollanet Squad vs. Gente di Rispetto opens always the day of Appuntamento a mano armata, and Pollanet Squad looks players  :-\

this past edition Pollanet Squad won 8-7 (golden goal) and Gente di Rispetto wants the reply... naturally the special coach for Pollanet Squad was Umberto Lenzi  :P

now I'm collecting all the photos of A.A.M.A. 2008 to public them... it's a very hard and bad work
