Grande Fratello
 
Season 1 (2000)

The first season of Grande Fratello kicked off on 14 September 2000, and ended on 21 December 2000. The idea was spawned from George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, and the Italian version inspired by the original Big Brother series in the Netherlands.

Concept[edit]

Every two Weeks the Housemates were called to the Confessional to Nominate, choosing two Housemates each that they wish to see face the Public Vote. The two or more Housemates with the most Nominations will face the Public Vote, and the least popular Housemate is Evicted from the House.

Viewership[edit]

Grande Fratello started with 5 million viewers of the launch show. But viewing figures insreased fast, with 10 million viewers watching the eighth episode. It reached 16 million viewers at season finale.

Housemates[edit]

Ten Housemates moved into the House on Day One, each hoping to emerge from the House as the eventual winner of the prize fund.

Cristina[edit]

Cristina Plevani was born on 17 June 1972. She was the winner of first series of Grande Fratello a has won £250,000,000 cash prize.

Francesca[edit]

Francesca Piri, born on 15 May 1976. Frencesca moved around a lot, staying in many Universities, but being excluded from all of them. In the House she struggled to adapt and fit in with her fellow Housemates, and was eventually the first Housemate to be Evicted.

Lorenzo[edit]

Lorenzo Battistello was born on 13 November 1973 in Vicenza. In the House he became known as the House chef, and since leaving the House has opened a successful restaurant in Milan. In the House he was romantically linked with Marina.

Maria Antonietta[edit]

Maria Antonietta Tilloca, a painter and artist, born in Alghero on May 27, 1973, paints mainly in red and black, according to her interpretation of red expressing love, pain and emotion, while black represents the unknown. In the House she was seen as a peace-maker and very diplomatic, whilst also overcoming personal difficulties in her real life; breaking up with her current boyfriend live on television.

Marina[edit]

Marina La Rosa was born on 21 January 1977. Marina was eventually evicted over Cristina with 83% of the vote, in which over one million people voted.

Pietro[edit]

Pietro Taricone (1975–2010) born in Italy, on 4 February 1975, was a Law Student at the prestigious Faculty of Law, but did not finish his studies after dropping out. Pietro was a very extroverted in the House, which led to enormous popularity with the Italian Public. He died on 29 June 2010 due to a parachuting accident, making him the first Italian ex-housemate to have died from the Grande Fratello.

Roberta[edit]

Robeta Beta, born on 22 August 1965, worked as a PR. During her stay in the House she proved very unpopular, on one occasion receiving unanimous Nominations from all her fellow Housemates.

Rocco[edit]

Rocco Casalino, born on 1 July 1972, lived for sixteen years in Germany and has a degree in electrical engineering. In the House Rocco was seen as being vain and attentive to the aesthetic side of his appearance, but also as being very well educated. In the House he was a very volatile character, often being very sensitive and telling stories of his alcoholic father's death and other difficulties with his family, but at other times being very argumentative and aggressive, arguing with Lorenzo, Salvo, Peter and, in particular, Marina.

Salvo[edit]

Salvo Veneziano, born on 4 April 1975, is a married man with one child, a girl called Laura. Salvo was considered to be the House comedian. Since leaving the House Salvo has opened a chain of pizzerias.

Sergio[edit]

Sergio Volpini, born on 20 June 1975 in Ancona. Sergio was very self-confident of his own appearance and was often considered to be conceited. His bizarre but hilarious rants often took centre stage during the shows highlights and he proved very popular.
