Sabina Guzzanti is a product of leftist TV propaganda, but rather differently from other political activists, she happens to be very talented: in some ways, her political affiliations probably thwarted a career which could have seen her becoming a prime actress. She chose to follow a different path and abandoned pure art in name of propaganda. Many people like her and find her work amusing: she was definitely very smart in finding a place in the public eye, especially in cinema, where her docu/films are successful at the box office, and culturally appreciated by leftist intellectuals. A memorable imitation is also the one of Left leader and former Prime Minister, Massimo D'Alema, whose feature and expressions are perfectly reproduced by Guzzanti. Sabina has indeed a particular talent for impersonations and, in the case of D'Alema, the similarities are truly remarkable. Capable of doing both Berlusconi and D'Alema, Sabina created some very funny sketches. She also wore the clothes of Argentinean left hero "Che" Guevara and even there, the results were hilarious.

Sabina Guzzanti's collaboration with the pseudo-intellectual world of Italian leftists continues, albeit she did much credibility from an artistic point of view: she has been accused of creating second-rate satire, of being a little talented left-wing puppet. She appears to be, at least when it comes to her career, a typical case where artistic talent has been overwhelmed by political interests. Isn't it true? Sometimes, artists should just try to be artists.
In 2012, she came back on the Italian screens with her own show, Uno Due Tre Stella, on La7, one of Italy's major private networks.
