The documentary deals with 3 periods of Funari's life (80s, 90s and 2000s) as a comedy / drama in 3 acts. Each period focuses on a phase of the Funari television personality / audience, which has changed TV, society and in part the way of relating to the public and politics. The innovations introduced by Funari still maintain an interest today, for having anticipated and partly inaugurated certain current trends in entertainment politics, personalism, giving a voice to ordinary people, being at the same time an ante-litteram influencer and one of us. And it is the story of a person, the private and unofficial Funari, a nobody up to the age of 50 and then suddenly a central figure on TV and beyond. A man who has changed his skin many times, who with great clarity and great instinct has lived a fluctuating life, between successes, failures and revenge.
