Carlo Freccero talks about Simona Ventura in Pechino Express, Fazio about Rai2 and The Voice: interview

Read Blogo's interview with Rai2 director Carlo Freccero, met today shortly before he handed over the next winter schedule to ad Salini

On the sidelines of the press conference presenting Realiti, the program with Enrico Lucci which will debut next Wednesday in prime time, Carlo Freccero answered some questions from Blogo. About The Voice, whose yesterday's episode showed the lowest audience ever, he explained:

A budget? I am very satisfied, has repositioned the network towards a younger and more commercial target; and we did a real music program. I am very happy that we did not remain at the usual nostalgia … Do you listen to him? I'm very happy. Yesterday we were penalized because we aired on Thursday, but I'm also very happy because the sponsors are happy.

The director of Rai2 he then said that the new edition of Beijing Express "will air after Sanremo 2020 or early March", confirming, in fact, the indiscretion of Blogo yesterday. The management will be there Simona Ventura, as he himself had announced recently?

No. I still have to make pairs …. Simona Ventura also has other projects. So I don't confirm anything, the program has to be done.

If up Costantino Della Gherardesca he merely said to have met him, without adding details, Freccero was much more precise about the possible landing of Fabio Fazio on the network he runs:

I spoke at length with Fabio Fazio for seven hours, and we are very close to an editorial agreement for his passage on Rai2, which concerns Sunday programming with Che Tempo che fa which would have a first part before Tg2, from 7.30pm to 20.29, which would be more ironic and light, and a second part in prime time. He is very happy and motivated, but now he must have the approval of the managing director. And we need to see if we can even reach a contractual agreement. But this part is not up to me, but, precisely, to the CEO, the legal offices and others.

To those who asked him if the cancellation of Monday's episode could lead Fazio to accept a reduction in the compensation provided by the current contract (which will expire in two seasons), Freccero replied: "We haven't talked about this. But I think so".
