Rome, 30 April 1993: A crowd throws coins at Italian prime minister Bettino Craxi – as if the Civil War has begun. It is the setting of 1993 (8 hours, “1992”: 10 hours), the highly ambitious series about corruption, the mani pulite bribery investigations, the collapse of a political system and the chance for new powers to rise out of the ashes.
1993 is written by the creator trio Alessandro Fabbri, Ludovica Rampoldi and Stefano Sardo, who were also responsible for the first season. The show is based on an idea of Stefano Accorsi, who is taking the lead as well. Also starring are Miriam Leone, Guido Caprino, Domenico Diele and Tea Falco; Giuseppe Gagliardi directs. 1993 is a Sky Italia production realized by Wildside (“The Young Pope”).
