Rome in 2011, with the government in danger of falling, the Vatican in crisis and the squares of the city in flames: it is the theater of Suburraeterna, the TV series that expands the universe of Suburra with the new original story produced by Cattleya - part of ITV Studios. It will premiere at the Rome Film Fest, with the first two episodes, and from November 14 will be on Netflix.
The cast includes Giacomo Ferrara as Spadino and Filippo Nigroin as Amedeo Cinaglia, while Carlotta Antonelli and Federica Sabatini return to play Angelica and Nadia respectively. The series is written by Ezio Abbate and Fabrizio Bettelli (head writers), Andrea Nobile, Camilla Buizza, MarcoSani and Giulia Forgione. Ciro D'Emilio directs the first four episodes, while Alessandro Tonda directs the last four.
The series is based on the literary work Suburra (Einaudi) written by Giancarlo De Cataldo and Carlo Bonini who also take care of the story editing.
We return to the 'middle' world where Cinaglia (Nigro) has tried to collect the legacy of Samurai and, together with Badali (Emmanuele Aita), continues to manage the criminal affairs of the city, with the help of Adelaide (Paola Sotgiu) and Angelica (Antonelli), who remained at the head of the Anacleti, and Nadia (Sabatini), who helps them manage the squares of Ostia.
Spadino "has changed, matured has made decisive personal choices, he has understood who he wants to be, but the call of Suburra is strong and will bring him home" explained Giacomo Ferrara at the presentation of Italian productions for Netflix. "Suburra is eternal - adds Ferrara - because the three dominant powers continue their coexistence". But there are those who no longer accept this system. The balance jumps and so begins a revolution that, from the Church to the Capitol and up to the beaches of Ostia, quickly expands to erase everything that represents the past. Spadino (Ferrara) will have to prevent his family from being endangered along with everything else, and to look for new allies, even where he never thought he would find them, with control of Rome at stake.
