Who knows how the now ex-young Roman Communists (who later became the leaders of the Italian left for thirty years) will take it who, Nanni Moretti once said, “were watching Happy Days, Fonzie every afternoon. This is their formation: cultural, moral politics ». The news is that Henry Winkler is auctioning the Arthur Fonzarelli memorabilia.

The American actor who for 11 seasons – from January 15, 1974 to July 19, 1984 – stepped into the role of ‘Fonzie’ in the iconic television sitcom ‘Happy Days’, sells a treasure trove of costumes, props and other memorabilia from his career. The appointment is for Wednesday 8 December in the halls of the Bonhams auction house in Los Angeles, where the sale renamed ‘”TCM Presents … Hollywood Cool” will be held, which can also be followed online, reports CNN explaining that the TMC is part of the Warner Media group, the parent company of the same US broadcaster. One of the highlights will be the ‘Fonzie’ outfit, which includes a pair of Levi’s jeans, a white T-shirt, a pair of black boots and of course his leather jacket – a lot Bonhams says should sell for between 50,000 and 70,000. dollars (44,000-62,000 euros). The jacket is one of at least seven used on the show, explains the auction house on its website: one is in one of the museums of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington. And could not miss the silver Triumph motorcycle that ‘The Fonz’ rode throughout the TV series aired on ABC, which should be sold for 80,000-120,000 dollars. “I will never say goodbye because it is always in my heart and always in my mind. It was the show that launched me into the world and I will always be grateful to him, ”Winkler told CNN affiliate KABC. “Separating from an object in no way diminishes the enormity of that experience,” he added.
