We had the good fortune of connecting with Claudia Conte and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Claudia, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Behind every success that lasts there are sacrifices, effort and hard work. To establish yourself in show business of course you need talent, but it’s also very important to study and get education in important schools ( I have studied in New York film academy and in Italy with important maestros of theatre) You have to have patience, determination and costance. Real aims have always obstacles, it’s never easy. Its also necessary to build a team of professionals that can support you. And in this I would like to thank my manager Angelo Paradiso, my look maker Claudio De Martino and my International PR Ekaterina Shevlyakova.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m an Italian Actress, presenter and writer. I’m also the founder of Women in Cinema Award during Venice Film Festival and Rome Film Festival.
I am very proud because I believe in meritocracy and in the strength of women.
I attended courses at the New York Film Academy (Strasberg Method) and in Italy with great coach like Giancarlo Giannini, Mirella Bordoni (Costa Method), Eljana Popova (Stanislavskij Method).
I think the study is important. But after learning the technique, instinct must be used.
I participated and performed in theatrical tours involving classical texts and sacred theater.
I Participated in television dramas and films too.
I love writing. I feel free.
I published a compilation of poems entitled, “Frammenti rubati al Destino”,
“Soffi Vitali”, my first novel and a deeply perceptive novel titled, “Il vino e le rose”.
I Obtained numerous awards, including the “Oscar dei Giovani” the Campidoglio Award, consigned during the “Giornata d’Europa” ceremony pertaining to my multifaceted commitment in the cultural field. Attains a Master’s Degree in Law.
It wasn’t easy to achieve these job goals. What I learned is that ‘if you dream it, you can do it’ as Walt Disney teaches!
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I will bring my friend to Rome to visit Vatican Museums and Colloseum to eat carbonara at the Borgo Pio restaurant. I would bring a friend to Sperlonga, my place of heart, a beautiful little village by the sea full of history and mithology
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
In life nobody gave me anything for free. I have fought myself every day for every single success. I think being great full is the most important value. I’ m very great full for everything that I have achieved. First of all I thank God that I turn to constantly and for everything. I thank my family, my parents and my grandmothers that have given me such important values as dignity, onesty, pure heart and generous always ready to help.
