Last farewell to the immense Piero Angela, television will never be the same again

Piero Angela wrote the pages of Italian television history. Born in Turin in 1928, at the age of 7, he began taking piano lessons. Jazz music fascinated him like never before and little more than a teenager he started playing in the clubs of Versilia – eventually forming a band.

It was not until the early 1950s that he decided to give up music. He entered Rai, where he devoted himself to journalism. He plays the role of columnist and was one of the most famous correspondents of the time. We also remember that he was the first presenter of TG2 as well as a war correspondent.

The way of telling the director Roberto Rossellini particularly influences him. He approaches to shoot his first documentary and on the occasion of the launch into space of the Saturn V satellite, he also begins his journey into the world of scientific broadcasting.

Among its most famous shows are Quark, Superquark (aired from 1995 to 2022). Not to mention the famous success of Ulysses – The Pleasure of Discovery which kept millions of viewers riveted to the screen. The secret of its success: finding a meeting point with the public and an easy language of communication.
