The Jackal, Ciro Priello and Fabio Balsamo. Scudetto to Naples? “I cut my beard.” “I’m walking Vesuvius”. The interview
Name That Tune – Guess the song is back with The Jackal, Ciro Priello and Fabio Balsamo, still on the dashboard (from 25 January, every Wednesday, at 9.30pm). “This year we start with a different awareness than last year which was the first time to host a TV program”, recalls Ciro Priello to the microphones of Affaritaliani.it. The news? “There will be new games, a theme song sung and ballad that reminds us of the TV programs from when we were children and an even more strengthened and consolidated dynamic between Fabio and me”.
“A more intense self-deprecating spirit and two new games. Ciro sings and dances… ‘more Ciro’ in this new edition” – says Balsamo to Affari – “I teased him with a game, I told him ‘Bring your imitation skills too’: in the ‘Double Myth’ he imitates the voice of some singers, but on the songs of other performers”. About the famous and amusing imitations of Ciro Priello… “I’m not an imitator, I enjoy imitating”, he explains. “Imitation is something else”. And who among the singers do you enjoy imitating the most? “I was born and raised with Michael Jackson, that beautiful thin little voice… Then there are many, I tried to put as many interpreters as possible”. And Fabio Balsamo points out: “Then some contrasts are also very funny” Guy? Priello explains: “For example, how Giuliano Sangiorgi would have conceived a song by Cristina D’Avena. There is not only the original base and the voice of a different singer. You have to rearrange everything on how that singer would have conceived it”, says Ciro. “We got complicated”, says Fabio Balsamo laughing. The most difficult singer to imitate? “Sangiorgi is one of the most difficult, because he has octave leaps every now and then in a normal-voiced doublet”.
The Jackal and the Napoli Scudetto. Spalletti’s team has been a show since the beginning of the season, they are beating the competition and the third tricolor in Neapolitan history seems within reach as never before for 30 years now. There’s a whole second round to play, but no one seems able to stop the run of Osimhen and teammates. Your foil in exchange for the Napoli championship? “What I can offer, which I care so much about, is my beard. I take it off, I dye it blue…” promises Fabio Balsamo. “I climb Vesuvius on foot… I’ve never been there”, swears Ciro Priello.
Who is the player of this Naples and that of the Naples of the past that make your heart beat the most? “Kvaratskhelia a lot. I should tell you Maradona about the past, but I haven’t lived it. I’ve only seen it through videotapes. He made my heart beat Ezechiel Lavezzi”, recalls Ciro Priello. Fabio Balsamo agrees on the Pocho: “For his irreverence, his way of being a bit like our Masaniello. The revolution. They came back from decades of failures.. Serie C, B… and in his first year in Serie A there is this young Argentine who dribbles past them everyone. A beautiful thing. Now I feel like paying homage to Di Lorenzo. Because Kvaratskhelia is the talent, Kim is the novelty and the grit, but Di Lorenzo is a footballer with a professionalism and a method that is also the leap in maturity of this Napoli. Headings and emotional blows are good, but to win big goals you need a captain who is constant over the years and always present. And he is the best captain we could have. While thanking our Lorenzo Insigne who, as a Neapolitan, has given us so much”
