Achille Lauro arrives on Prime Video with the docufilm Ragazzi Madre – The Iliad

From this night the new docu-film “Ragazzi Madre – The Iliad”, which tells the life and story of Achille Lauro, is available on Prime Video.

The docufilm focuses on the artist’s private life, offering an unfiltered and unprecedented portrait of the most intimate aspects of his world, which until now have been extraneous to media narration following the last ten years of his career. An ambitious path from nothing to success, an Iliad of battles on the road that led Achille to his consecration, from urban icon of the extreme Roman suburbs, boy-mother of friends and children of no one to rock star on international stages and successful entrepreneur until arriving at the United Nations Building in New York as a representative of Italian Music, teaching in front of an audience of young students from all over the globe.

At the end, after the credits, we see a red plate with butterflies inside. Are Mother Boys’ eggs hatching to become butterflies?
What if there’s new music and a new tour on the horizon?
