09 January 1964

A Very Young TV Viewer

Luciano Osti

Music by Guglielmo Pagnozzi

It is difficult to say from which television program on the evening of January 9, 1964 at the Osti house, little Paolo was captured while his mother feeds him, whether from the Farmers' TV column, from the American drama One of the five or from the documentary ‘The difficult lunch of the flamingos’ from the series Safari. It is very probable that it is instead the legendary Carosello that fatally attracts the child and his mother, while their father Luciano portrays them with the camera so lovingly as to steal his gaze.
