I was thinking it might be nice to have a thread where we can chat about this scorching hot, tall, dark, over-the-top handsome, blue-eyed Italian studmuffin (and actor)! Maybe link to your favorite Giulio videos, post pictures, or help me decipher parts of "La Figlia di Elisa" so we can figure out exactly what the heck happened.

Hope to see you (and Giulio) soon!
K2

KarenH | 121 comments Greetings class. I think we should skip all the niceties and get right down to the most important subject - Giulio's anatomy. :D Which part(s) do you like? Being the sweet & innocent *cough cough* girl I am, I'll just say I love his kissable-looking lips. Have you ever seen a more seductive set of smackers?

 Lady Jayne *~*The Beach Bandida*~* (ladyjayne) | 400 comments OMG! I could totally drown in his eyes and I just want to nibble on those extremely kissable lips. Oops! Sorry. Did I say that out loud? *giggles*

OMG, OMG, OMG!!!! I am so glad for this! I will be back later to post all my favorites of this GOD with the BOD!

For now I will answer...yes, his eyes are TO DIE FOR and that wicked mouth, I know he could even more wicked things with it!!! AND his hair...yes, his hair, being a female barber, I usualy do not like long hair on men...however, what I would do to run my finger thru that mane. Holy shit, especially if it was wet! (did I just say wet?)

Ok, I need to go find my hubby,(blush) it is his birthday after all!


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

I also need to add that I'm gonna guess that there are parts of him that I've not seen that I'd be more that willing to check out and I am certain I would be thrilled with those parts!!(((wicked chuckle)))

KarenH | 121 comments I love those videos, Heidi. The first one I've watched so many times I finally just downloaded it onto my desktop for convenience. The second video is gaining on the first for most times watched. The third one is just like Auntee said...*sigh* It's all about the wetness. :)

This is the video that is currently causing me emotional distress:

Did he really do the Princess??? Say it ain't so!


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

I watched this entire mini series and it insinuates that something did happen between them, but I like to just think it didn't unless I was her of course, then it would have been fine! LOL

If you haven't watched the mini series, you must! even if you can't understand what they are saying it VERY emotional. I cried my eyes out toward the end and my hubby asked me if I was gonna be ok. It was absolutely heart wrenching at one point! Best movie I have ever seen hands down!


message 22: by KarenH (new)

KarenH | 121 comments I'm watching it now for the second time. K says Andrea slept with the princess when he and Agnese were apart but, like you, I'm trying to convince myself they didn't. At times like this it would've been nice to know what was being said. IMO the most heart-wrenching parts were 1. when she saw him kissing & he told her they were totally finished (from the vid I posted above) and 2. when he was imprisoned and saw her leaving with Loya. I totally agree with you...bar none, it's the best movie I've ever seen!

I think since Agnese's brother was the one that killed his mom, he didn't want anything to do with her either. That's why he was trying to forget her, but the day of her wedding, he realized his love for Agnese was stronger than his need to avenge his mother's death.

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 469 comments anyone know what (if any) novel this is based on? and was it ever published in english?


message 29: by KarenH (new)

KarenH | 121 comments Yay!! Good news! I translated Wikipedia's page on Giulio and this is what it says he will be working on for television in 2010:

# Angels and diamonds, directed by Raffaele Mertes - Mini-TV - Channel 5 (2010)
# The daughter of Elisa - Ritorno a Rivombrosa Parte Seconda, directed by Stefano Alleva - Miniseries TV - Channel 5 (2010) - Role: Casalegno Andrea Van Necker


A new miniseries AND part 2 of La Figlia?

message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

OMG, a part 2? I'm so excited! I can't wait!


Cyn Mistress Kitty (beachlover) I didn't understand either that he wanted nothing to do with Agnese blaming her for his mothers death. Didn't they explain that his mother was trying to stab Agnese and her brother was protecting her? That was very confusing.
Also, this sounds stupid but did his mother kill both of Agnese's parents. I am just starting to watch the mini series about Elise and I love that couple. How very sad that they didn't have much of a HEA.
I wonder what Part 2 is going to be about?

Regarding Andrea blaming Agnese, I think he blamed her brother and she was simply guilty by association. I mean really...look how many times Andrea was shunned/set down by Martino simply because he was Lucretia's son. I think Lucretia killed Fabrizio because supposedly she loved him for years but couldn't have him. Her confession to that murder (as well as her plan to kill Agnese because she was his daughter) was the document that the servant had buried with Lucretia and was subsequently dug up by Andrea. K. is the resident expert on the original series so I'm sure she will be able to explain everything whenever she pops in.

You're right, Fabrizio & Elisa didn't have much of a HEA in their series but they've got one in real life...and a little girl as well!

Cyn Mistress Kitty (beachlover) Thanks. I love this thread. It will answer a lot of questions.

Shel | 11 comments I thought his mother was Elisa. I haven't watched it yet and haven't watched the ending of EDR yet since I think it ends bad.
I also translated an article about the pair, Fabrisio and Elisa and she said something like they are working things out, don't know what that means. He should just marry her since they already have a daughter, then I could finish watching EDR. I think they are a beautiful couple:)


message 36: by Shel (new)

Shel | 11 comments We need someone to explain everything in detail, someone who knows Italian/Spanish.


message 37: by [deleted user] (last edited Feb 16, 2010 04:01PM) (new)

I took 5 years of Spanish(in school... way back) and understood most of what was being said....I really need to watch it again and pay more attention rather than just drooling of Giullio!

LMAO. Yup...why I'm on round 2. Thing is...the drooling continues because it can't be helped, but the 2nd time thru you can piece together much more of the story. Like now I see how he was flirting with the Princess at the first ball, so damn he must've been doing her before Agnese arrived.

I think the line is forming, ladies.

MY GOD! WHO WOULD'VE THOUGHT.....????


Cyn Mistress Kitty (beachlover) Isn't that the truth. In the movie, I thought he wasn't very hansom but in this picture he looks mighty fine.


message 47: by [deleted user] (new)

I know, in the movie, I was like "PUKE"...but that picture has me thinking!

Holly (velvetsun) | 144 comments Wow...talk about looking completely different in real life...

Of course, it's next to impossible for me to notice another man when Giulio is around. ;)

Heidi: The Princess and Andrea had some kind of "relationship" BEFORE he met Agnese (not sure if it was a consumated relationship - but it alludes to it - it's just never "stated"). But no, nothing "happened" between Andrea and the Princess during Andrea and Agnese's separation. Andrea went for a booty call because he wanted to forget Agnese, but both of them realized he couldn't get over her. When the Princess finds him in the wine cellar drunk, he asks her to drink with him. Although she is in love with Andrea, she has enough self-respect to not chase him (she even later goes to Agnese and tells Agnese that nothing happened between them and that Agnese is the only woman Andrea wants). She says to Andrea that she knows he's still totally in love with Agnese. He tells her that one can't help whom one falls in love with (basically).

So you can ALL sigh with relief - Andrea never cheats on Agnese! :)

K2: We must have gotten our wires crossed on this one. I meant that I believed they slept together at some point PRIOR to his meeting Agnese . . . not during their separation. (EEEK - No, that would have been a disaster!! ;)

BTW -- Thanks for pointing me to this thread K!!!! I can't believe you left ME out of this loop for SO MANY days! *sob* What a WONDERFUL idea. We can all gush our hearts out with one another over this man and this series!

I'm a bit nuts over Fabrezio as well now that I've watched the Elisa de Rivombrosa series. He's got the most wonderful "bedroom" eyes, and he's VERY macho . . . just couldn't help falling for him!
