“Rebecca Antonaci’s Breakout Role in ‘Finally Dawn’ Draws Comparisons to Giulietta Masina”
Point 1: Director Saverio Costanzo cast Rebecca Antonaci as the lead in his Venice-bowing drama “Finally Dawn” due to her resemblance to iconic actress Giulietta Masina. Set in the 1950s golden age of Cinecitta studio, Antonaci portrays Mimosa, a timid Italian teen who becomes involved in a chaotic, Fellini-esque adventure.
Point 2: Antonaci’s role in “Finally Dawn” has opened her eyes to the possibility of acting as a vocation. Her passion for storytelling began at a young age, and this project allowed her to challenge herself and fall in love with the world of cinema. She also recently published her first album of self-written songs titled “Morfina.”
