According to Orson Welles, Eduardo was the best actor in the world: as a matter of fact he had an incredible, almost natural feeling of the stage, and was a perfect embodiment of the Neapolitan character. He was the father of the modern Neapolitan - and Italian - theater, a fantastic person, a wise, composed, generous man, who devoted his entire life to the theater, to the point of rebuilding at his own expense the the Teatro San Ferdinando in Naples after WW2. He is deservedly studied at the university in Italy, and revered by everyone who loves the theatre: on 28 May 2014, 30th anniversary of his death, the Sapienza University of Rome celebrates his achievements with a special event.
