Adriano Celentano is a celebrity in Italy. He’s a famous Italian singer, composer and actor.

He was nicknamed “Il Molleggiato” because of his dancing.

His career as a singer started in 1956 with a boy band but the real success would come only three years later with the song Il tuo bacio è come il rock.

Since then, he has sold over 150 million records and produced many famous songs such as 24.000 baci, Azzurro, Una carezza in un pugno, etc.

But as I already mentioned, Adriano Celentano worked also as an actor. He played in 40 films, mostly comedies, and the majority of them were a great success.

I must admit I like the majority of these Italian comedies a lot.

So, let’s see three of these Italian comedies.
