"Leaving the company, Rossano returned to Rome, but as soon as it reached the ears of Gioacchino Forzano that the young man was free of his engagements, he hired him for a presentation of «Caesar». The critics regarded as a revelation the new actor in the part of Brutus, a role he accented with a lot of virility. This was followed by an invitation from Renato Simoni, who entrusted to him, aware of his value, the role of the protagonist in «Aminta», with a group of famous actors like: Gino Cervi, la Paganini, Ninchi and la Morelli. It was a stupendous success for the Garden of Boboli in Florence!! Every doubt had by now faded away and Rossano was considered one of the best hopes of our theater."
