ACB: I did think that my work on The Idol would result in a sort of very modest work: I had many ideas in my head, but I had insufficient time to obtain that I wanted, and find the right mood ... maybe because am I unsympathetic with idols? Who knows! But in the end, the tenacity of Antonio and Alberto gave my cover some better face ... in fact, at first, so ghostly.
