The Interview

In the issue of Chi on newsstands from Wednesday 5 February exclusive interview to Diletta Leotta, protagonist of Sanremo alongside Amadeus in the first and on the last night of the Festival. “I love taking risks, in my work and in my love life. As a child I was rational and framed, now I’m more reckless. In fact, I’m in Sanremo.” The host, who has exploded on Sky and is now the face of Dazn, will make her entrance into the entertainment world at the Festival. And of her colleagues she says: “I like the empathetic way in which Antonella Clerici comes to the public, the grit of Simona Ventura, the seriousness of Ilaria D’Amico, the irony of Belen and then Alessia Marcuzzi: when she conducted “Lightning Strike” it drove me crazy, we hope they do that program again”. “In my opinion, lightning strikes are the ones that risk making you suffer, while the loves that start slowly are those in which you are the ones that risk making you suffer. I’ve tried both.”

They criticize her because she’s too sexy on social media. “In my opinion it’s a side effect, it’s my physicality that makes me so, it’s not the photos. In fact, I don’t think I’m going to put sexy photos, but if you have a certain physique, i don’t think Sexy even in pajamas». Even Paola Ferrari who said of Leotta: “She is not a role model for girls”. “I was not hurt, but it was an opportunity to understand that among women there is no solidarity between men: if we learned to team up we would not even see you (…) I don’t have to like everyone, that’s fine. If you want to do this job, you have to be ready for criticism. In my career I have taken one step at a time, I am sure of my path. Maybe if Paola Ferrari knew me, she’d change her mind.”

Comparisons with Belen, which in Sanremo stood out for the famous butterfly, Leotta says: “She has a sensuality and a femininity that I dream of at night, I am more tomboy. And then she’s a showgirl, I’m a host, we do different things.” “Sensuality is innate, it cannot be explained. It is a movement, a look, a way of speaking, in fact I am not if I have it.” Last spring Leotta left after 4 years with the top manager Matthew Mammì: “I don’t think it has to do with my work, the reasons are more intimate. It was very difficult, they remained affectionate and esteemed. Sometimes you have to be brave, maybe I’m wrong, but I have to take risks.”

Today she is linked to the boxer Daniel Scardina, called “King Toretto”. “It was totally random. For the first time I didn’t have to be rational. By nature I am curious and fascinated by worlds other than mine, by different people, I love to know and explore situations that have nothing to do with me.” “What do I look for in a man? My needs change with time, at this moment I feel the need for lightness and to feel protected.” The famous gaffe of Amadeus on the “step back” that women should do next to a great man, Leotta says: “We focused on a phrase said in a press conference, but I would look at the problem in general. Every day there are women who are subjected to violence, we should focus more on what is happening in society if we are to address the issue.” And finally, he responds jokingly to a provocative question: “Who would I choose between Mourinho and Cristiano Ronaldo? I would have dinner with Mourinho because Ronaldo eats chicken breast and salad. And after dinner with Ronaldo to have a beer, but gluten-free.” She admits: “When I was a kid, I had Brad Pitt’s poster in my room. And I dream he’s coming back with Jennifer Aniston.”
