"Those who have never been fans of Bud Spencer have some problems. He was in fact the first superhero together with Terence Hill. Whether they were outlaws or policemen, they were always on the side of the weakest, they were the modern Batman and Superman. And for us guys seeing those films full of fights and laughter was something unforgettable" This is how Salvatore Esposito in Naples on the set of the Sky Original series, Piedone, talks about his character as a police inspector, spiritual heir of Inspector Rizzo, made immortal by Bud Spencer with Piedone The Cop, a 1973 film directed by the great Steno.


    The scene being filmed in the Joia nightclub in Sant'Antimo, where a wrestling gym has been set up, sees the challenge of two wrestlers: Flatfoot and Zeppelin.

When the first takes off his mask, we discover that he is Vincenzo Palmieri (Esposito), a police inspector who comes from the street just like his mentor, Inspector Rizzo, the mythological Piedone, from whom he learned everything.

An irregular, undisciplined, grumpy inspector who believes in justice but in his own way, and does not fail to fight as he is a champion wrestler.


    In the series in four eighty-minute episodes directed by Alessio Maria Federici, Silvia D'Amico plays Commissioner Sonia Ascarelli, head of the police detachment at the port of Naples who believes in those rules and procedures that are so strict in Palmieri.

Fabio Balsamo, on the other hand, is the deputy inspector Michele Noviello, an expert in medieval history, but who ended up working in the police.


    And Esposito says again on the set in Naples: "We wanted to pay homage to Piedone with a sequel, fifty years later, because he is a character who represents the positive values ​​of Naples well and who is close to the weak. The beauty of the series is that there is a lot of humanity and feeling, but also crime and action. Ten years after the first season of Gomorrah - underlines the actor -, I return to Naples grown up, more mature and it's nice to find myself with family."


    Piedone is a Sky Studios, Wildside and Titanus production and will soon be on Sky and streaming on NOW.
