Virgil Asoltanei was born in Romania into a traditional, popular family. His journey begins with a childhood full of emotions, then his military service, up to building the beautiful family, made up of his wife Ana Asoltanei and his daughter Marinella Asoltanei.

Together they decide to make a radical change regarding the working side and so they decide to go abroad, destination Italy. Once he arrived in Italy, Virgil, together with his family, built his building company with many sacrifices and hard work, becoming a very good entrepreneur. After some time, Virgil is not well and unfortunately, after the tests and analyzes carried out, he was diagnosed with cancer which completely upsets his life and that of his entire family. Virgil is very ill, the doctors give him a few months to live … The family members think the worst and, according to the orthodox tradition, even begin to prepare and organize his funeral. But just when the situation was dramatic, Virgil has an illumination of a new life path, completely new, he sees this “supernatural divine entity” as he defines it, a Guardian Angel, who helps him by totally changing the direction of the facts.

He calls it “my miracle of visions”. Virgil recovers quickly, stronger than before, to the point of building a Memorial Plaque (located in Montalto di Castro), dedicated to the Romanians who fell on Italian territory in the First World War, on which occasion he was awarded as “Knight of Honor” by Military Officers from Romania. In Italy, which has now become his second home, having lived for more than 20 years, Virgil proudly promotes and spreads, together with his beloved wife Ana, singer and actress, and daughter Marinella, photo model, actress and singer, teachings popular folklore and traditions of the Romanian people. But Virgil is also something else; an actor (playing various roles in films in Italy), radio presenter, songwriter, several television participations in Mediaset and Rai up to being a film director.

In one day, Virgil decides to create his own film, with his ideas putting directing into practice. He chooses an important Italian-Romanian cast, a cast which includes one of the greatest and most famous Italian actors, Joseph Cascella. Thus was born his thriller and action film, a struggle between good and evil “Leon” (March-April 2022), a film inspired by his life and where he plays the main role as a legionnaire, a very important uniform for him. The first scenes were shot in Romania, then continuing in August 2022 on Italian territory; a true model of union between the two countries, Italy and Romania.
