We will never know for sure when we will get back a bunch of actors like the one who made the history of our cinematography from 1944 to 1990, the year in which the chapter on realism ends and another one should have followed, even more real and true, given that "The previous one was a manipulated story".
I have no intention of debating the history of our cinema's past, but of looking beyond this weak and commercial history that certainly does not satisfy the polite and delicate tastes of society.
The fact is that the times seem to be distant - not to say impossible - in which such an elite will return to the stages of our theaters and our cinema. We'll see if the new generations will have the courage to follow in the footsteps of their predecessors. All that remains is to wait and pray that that passion may come back and that our cinema will shine again as it once was.
Opening up to other European and non-European cultures allows us today to get in touch with these, to learn more about their stories and to try to make a treasure out of them. But the most important thing is to train our future actors, able to tread even the international scenes, always if possible.

Some time ago, I tried to do a first interview with the icon of the Albanian cinematography and stage, the great actor and director Dhimiter Orgocka.
In his answers he emphasized a fundamental fact about the role of the actor, namely that the theater is his most important school. These words resonate in my mind every year as soon as the week of one of the most unique festivals in Albania begins, the AlbaMono, conceived and created for the first time in Korça da Orgocka itself.
It is 16 years that this story of the monodrama goes on; 16 editions is always interesting in all its days. Actors, directors, assistants and groups have brought unforgettable and indelible experiences from their countries.
Today, after so many years since the opening of the festival, Orgocka says that the monodrama is a responsibility of the actor because on his own he has to move on stage and at the same time involve the public. A true trained and experienced actor always succeeds.
Also this year the miracle of the monodrama festival was repeated from the 2 to the 9 June, first in Maliq - with the inauguration of the Libonik reserve at 3 km from the city - and then moved to the city of Korça, at the Cathedral's event hall .
It was impressive to see so many institutions collaborating in the realization and success of the festival: the municipality of Maliq, that of Korça, the Culture Center of Maliq and Korça, the cathedral and the AZÇajupi theater.
The first day was the Greek actress Hara Koliu who played a part of "A man's voice". The second day, on the other hand, the Kosovar theater with the actor Lavderim Dushi, then the theater of Montenegro with the actress Andjelia Rondovic, that of Moscow with the actress Valerya Likhoday, the experimental theater of Tirana with the actor Enver Hyseni, that of Paris with actor Gerald Dumont that of Israel with actor Howard Rypp and in closing still another troupe of Moscow, with Georgi Iobadze.
The last evening in the full hall of the Korça theater, an extraordinary performance of the Russian actor Iobadze enthused the audience and led him to a personal triumph with the first final prize voted by the jury and the public.
An incredible success of the beautiful theater that according to festival director Dhimiter Orgocka, from year to year is bringing to Korça more and more important theater schools.
During their stay in Korça the guests had the opportunity to visit museums, places, business in the area, they participated in the Rose Festival in Pojan etc. Impressed by the Albanian hospitality and hospitality, the actors left for their countries with the promise that they will gladly return to a country where culture is always present in every step you take.
