Tributes on social media:
Many tributes are being shared on social media on the sad demise of Dario Penne;
Cinematographe.it has shared a tribute on facebook post:
“It’s not like there’s a lot of time to study when you’re dubbing. I mean, very often you don’t even see the movie first, once you do. #InnocentSilence showed me this before, but it rarely happens anymore. Often you arrive in the room without even knowing what to do and you find the movie in front of you. The important thing though is that the director is good, professional, prepared and knows how to explain well what happens before, after and during, to get you into the character.” Farewell to the voice actor #DarioPenne who passed away today at the age of 84 🙏
