ITALIAN DESCRIPTION:
Carlo Verdone si racconta per la prima volta in un flusso di ricordi ricco, sorprendente, tenero ed esilarante. Sospeso tra ironia e malinconia. Grande protagonista del libro è la casa paterna. La casa sopra i portici. Un luogo attraverso il quale si snodano tanti eventi: le catastrofiche feste dannunziane, gli incontri con Federico Fellini e Alberto Sordi, le incursioni destabilizzanti di geni dell'avanguardia come Gregory Markopoulos. E poi il rapporto con i genitori e i fratelli, gli scherzi (tanti, fulminanti), le prime esperienze sentimentali ma anche i drammi famigliari. Un sincero percorso di vecchie, struggenti emozioni, dove anche gli odori e i rumori diventano protagonisti. Un libro unico, imperdibile, per scoprire un 'privato' inedito e i molteplici aspetti di un regista, attore, autore che ha ammaliato, divertito, fatto riflettere generazioni di italiani. Un artista che - attraverso la sua trentennale carriera - ha tracciato un formidabile, lucido, disincantato e talvolta spietato ritratto del nostro paese.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION:
Carlo Verdone is one of the best contemporary Italian actor, screenwriter and film director. In "La Casa Sopra I Portici", Verdone narrates his rich memories, in a surprising, tender and hilarious manner, suspended between irony and melancholy. The main focus of the book is his father's house. The house above the arcades. A place through which holds numerous events: the catastrophic D'Annunzio parties, meetings with Federico Fellini and Alberto Sordi, destabilizing incursions of genes garde as Gregory Markopoulos. And then the relationship with his parents and siblings, the jokes (many, lightning), the first emotional experiences but also the family dramas. A sincere path of old, poignant emotions, where even the smells and sounds become protagonists. A unique book, a must to discover a 'private' and the many unusual aspects of a director, actor, author who has charmed, amused and makes reflects generatiions of Italians. An artist who - through his thirty-year career - has a formidable track, glossy, disenchanted and sometimes ruthless portrait of Italy.
