At just 23 years old, born in Florence but with his heart in Rome, Costantino Seghi has woven his life into a seamless blend of passion and talent for acting. His cinematic debut came with a far from simple role in “L’ombra del giorno” in 2022, where he starred alongside luminaries such as Benedetta Porcaroli and Riccardo Scamarcio, whom he reunited with on the set of “2 Win” directed by Stefano Mordini.

He later featured among the leads in the new series “Yet we fall happy,” available for streaming on RaiPlay. A young actor with a penchant for the piano, Costantino Seghi is emerging as a promising star in the realm of Italian cinema. His versatility and magnetic presence on screen set him apart, infusing freshness and depth into the characters he adeptly brings to life. His commitment and dedication are evidenced by his collaborations with established talents and his performances that captivate audience attention. With his innate charisma and a constant drive to hone his artistic skills, Costantino Seghi stands as one of the exciting new talents in Italian cinema. With a burgeoning career filled with successes and compelling projects, the future looks bright for this young actor who continues to surprise and inspire with his unique and genuine talent. Read below our exclusive interview with Costantino Seghi for Vanity Teen:

In addition to your commitments in cinema and television, have you had experience in theater and cinema? How did your childhood influence you as an actor and how did you prepare yourself to branch out into different artistic mediums?

My first time was with cinema, with “L’Ombra del Giorno” directed by Giuseppe Piccioni and it was the most significant and fulfilling experience so far, I continued with a small role in ‘Race for Glory’ directed by Stefano Mordini, released on March 14th at the cinema in Italy and I am currently shooting my third film for the cinema of which I cannot reveal anything other than that it is a leading role.

As for theatre, I attended a school in Florence giving a show that I still remember fondly today because my voice went away in the second performance, then I had to leave because I started working. As a child I never thought about acting, it was later, towards the end of high school, that I realized I could be an actor. The insecurity of not knowing what to choose after high school led me to make a risky decision but one dictated by passion which I believe is the strongest weapon in the hands of a human being.

He is a character with an enigmatic past and mysterious traits that leave room for multiple interpretations. What tricks did you use to create Lo’s complexity and psychological depth?

On balance, he suffers from schizoaffective disorder and I started from this assumption

build the character, then clearly I also took from the book and the sensations that

they grew as we did the scenes.

In “And yet we fall happy” you take on the role of the mysterious Lo, a character with a dark past, emerging as a central figure in Gioia’s life. Which aspects of Lo struck you the most and how did you work to interpret the complex facets of this enigmatic character?

As I said before, starting from this schizoaffective disorder of Lo I got to explore the characteristics of him that had to be mixed with the fact that he is still a teenager who has a crush on a girl and thinks he lives by her beliefs. I was struck by the fact that a guy like him gets to do everything he does in the series, positive and negative.

The series intensely reflects the challenges and changes of adolescence, showing the lives of young people struggling with identity, relationships and internal conflicts. How do you describe the process of immersing yourself in the teen world of “And Yet We Fall Happy” and how do you believe these themes can speak to a broad youth audience?

I believe that many teenagers can be reflected in the characters, fortunately I came out of that period but I remember the enormous intensity of everything that happened to me: between love, changes (wanted and unintentional) and the contradictions that they stop being there even now that I’m 23.

The relationship between Lo and Gioia evolves into a complex and engaging dynamic that fuels the emotional heart of the story. How did you approach building this relationship on set and how do you create the chemistry necessary to convey the intensity and complicity between the two characters?

It was great working with Gaja Masciale because we immediately had a good chemistry and she helped me a lot. Chemistry is often there or it isn’t there, but you also help each other by trying to enter each other’s little world in the most disparate ways, sharing some things about yourself with the other.

What has been the most challenging role you have played so far and why? How did you overcome challenges and get closer to the character?

The role of Corrado has certainly been the most beautiful and exciting challenge so far, even if the role I am playing now probably represents the most demanding challenge both in terms of duration and complexity of the character. You approach the character by constantly asking questions and not taking anything for granted, aware that what you discover could be wrong and that you therefore have to start again.

With both film and television experience, you have tackled a variety of roles and artistic projects. How do you balance your experience in different formats and how has your professional and personal preparation contributed to your artistic and interpretative growth?

Since I started I have met several teachers who helped me a lot to become the actor I am now. Now I’m in my second year at Volontè which is among the most important schools in Italy where a lot of phenomenal actors have come out. I really feel the difference between before and after school, also because of the wonderful people I met and who helped me improve.

Is there an actor or director you dream of collaborating with in the future? What traits or opportunities do you think this collaboration could bring to your work and artistic growth?

There are actually quite a few but to name one, working with the D’innocenzo brothers, who make a type of cinema that I really like, they dare and bring something new.

How can art and interpretation be tools to address social issues and raise public awareness of important issues and what are some of the topics that you feel particularly close to and that you would like to cover through your film career?

Art has many times been the standard-bearer of values and themes to raise public awareness and I believe that it is an important aspect, especially for us who make films but we must stay

be careful how you send a message because sometimes the form is more important than the content itself: I’m thinking of intimate and profound concepts that are completely trivialized, the social citationism that constantly destroys the thoughts of poets, the greed of those who necessarily want to communicate something when he has nothing to tell. Making art that lasts is difficult if we also want to include awareness-raising messages, we need to have a considerable artistic tact: talking about ourselves while communicating to the world, not easy. As for me, I would like to talk about many things during my career, but to stay on topic currently I would like to raise people’s awareness about going to vote always and in any case, given that in Italy in the last elections there was a turnout of 63%, which means that 17 million people did not vote, I it seems a serious fact and worthy of some attention, especially for young people, also considering the history of voting in our country and in the world.

What do you look for in the artistic projects you choose to undertake and what motivates you to select certain roles or productions over others? What criteria are important to you when it comes to making professional choices in your career?

I still can’t choose projects but I’m attracted to everything that can transform me.

The work I aim to do now is to constantly change from one project to another, how I speak, my body, the color of my hair, how I move… it’s exactly my favorite part of this job.

Besides acting, have you ever considered exploring other forms of artistic expression or taking on new creative challenges? Is there a specific artistic field you would like to explore in the future?

I’m half a pianist, I love music, I’d like to do something there too one day,

exploring the field of techno jazz, which drives me crazy, but maybe one day I’ll wake up and I decide that I want to become a painter, I’m not ruling anything out!
