Engineer Roberto Monanni, exhausted by the constant jokes that his esteemed piano teacher – Maestro Andrea Zanzottera – rattled off in a continuous stream during their piano lessons, for a kind of retaliation, around the end of 2008, created the Facebook page that bears this name, in order to carry the Critic Revue containing the best Zanzotterate, for the benefit of the digital people. To date, the page has over 1000 members, some of whom, at the right time, started to meet personally, creating memorable dinners followed by extemporary concerts by musicians members. It’s from these meetings that raised the creative need to make a film script aimed at the realization of a movie. From this the project Uargh! was born.
