Vesna Milek

In 2011 a journalist and writer Vesna Milek wrote a bestselling biographical novel Cavazza, a tale of love and loss. The story, as told by one of our greatest actors to Vesna Milek, is a mosaic of memories, a collage of moments and injustices of youth, shame, overcoming the obstacles of life, scents, colours and moods. Vesna Milek picked Cavazza’s brain and created a biography which speaks of a childhood, broken by World War II, of visits to the communist party in Milan and the fall of Mussolini, of first loves and the first punches thrown in a boxing ring, of the poetry by Vitomil Zupan, of thunderstorms at sea, of post-war Leningrad, of fatal attractions and the pain of loss. You can read an interview with her and Boris Cavazza in Spanish language (recorded during their tour in Spain) here.
