So I've had the book for a while now, and keep attempting to translate parts of it. It is mainly a reference book that describes every film that Milian plays as 'Monnezza' and 'Nico Giraldi' (each film gets its own section in the book). There is also a large 'glossary' of characters/locations/terminolo gy and actors from every 'Monnezza/Giraldi' film.
The book starts off with a chapter called 'Monnezza Forever' and seems to describe the importance and popularity of him with the Italian public. After that there are a few interviews with Umberto Lenzi, Quinto Gambi, Massimo Vanni, Enzo Cannavale, Mario Donatone, and Daniele Alabiso. Each film gets about 1-2 pages that includes a summary, and black and white photos are on nearly every other page. approximately 200+ pages.

A worthy buy for any Giraldi/Milian fan, and a must own for the diehards. apparently this same company released a similar book on Edwige Fenech...Here's hoping there's a Lilli Carati one someday in the future!

Obviously ununderstandable if you can't read Italian but do they have loads of pictures?
