Description: 'When Elvis smiled the sun started to shine.' Thus expressed Joe Esposito. The importance of a smile. Like the one, one of the last, that Elvis did during the interpretation of the song Unchained Melody on June 21, 1977 and which impressed Antonella Santovincenzo so much. The smile of a tired and suffering man, still capable, however, of creating indissoluble bonds in space and time. It is precisely by chasing this smile that Antonella leads us to discover the Elvis as a man, beyond the myth, drawing an extremely private, almost intimate portrait of him. Retracing the places where the artist lived, and visited by the author, the book manages to probe all the character aspects of Elvis: loneliness, generosity, insecurity, versatility, moods, charisma, intelligence, ambition, aesthetic sense, talent, patriotism, spirituality. The second part of the book is dedicated to the traveling exhibition curated by the Author, in collaboration with other Presley admirers, aimed at discovering the private Elvis, his passions, the relationship with his mother and family of origin. The book includes 24-pages with photographs. English title: 'Elvis Aaron Presley. The man behind the myth'.
