>>>ANSA/ Excitement high for Gomorra's return to screens

Series 3 broadens gaze to include peripheries of Europe

>>>ANSA/ Excitement high for Gomorra's return to screens

(by Angela Majoli). Rome, November 14 - Gomorra, the Italian language-Neapolitan dialect series dealing with organised crime in the suburbs of Naples, returns to prime-time television for its third series on November 17. It also debuts at the cinema, where the first few episodes of the series inspired by the novel by anti-mafia author Roberto Saviano will be screened as a preview in over 300 movie theatres on November 14 and 15. Ciro 'the immortal one', played by Marco D'Amore, is now a shadow of his former self, while Genny, played by Salvatore Esposito, has become the new clan leader and is wrestling with the isolation and suspicion that inevitably accompany his new responsibility. "Burying a child is a dramatic moment, a point of no return: this is why Ciro appears much more tired, with a long beard... his flight (to Bulgaria) derives from the desire to throw everything away and start over, but the past cannot be wiped out," says D'Amore, whose character had his daughter murdered in the second series. This is why his proverbial "immortality becomes a sentence: he goes through life, but perhaps he strongly wants to die." This "desire for death" connects him to Genny. "My character continues his descent into hell: now he is accompanied by Azzurra (Ivana Lotito) and the young Pietro and has chosen to become the head of the family that relegated him to the role of simple Mafioso: but for this reason the number of enemies has grown and the number of people he can trust has dwindled," says Esposito. "He has made a new ruthless pact with Ciro, we'll see how it goes." The new series has been written by Leonardo Fasoli, Maddalena Ravagli and Ludovica Rampoldi and directed by Claudio Cupellini and Francesca Comencini. It "broadens its gaze to include the Scampias of Europe, the outlying suburbs that all experience the same dimension: and Gomorra interprets the grammar of violence, of business, of profit," explains author Saviano. "The hope is precisely in the storytelling, in the possibility that Italy, by telling its own story, has managed to find a model of analysis of power, also on an international level." The cast once again strongly rejects the idea that Gomorra is a negative model carrying risks of emulation. "Why don't we talk about the acting schools that attracted young people after the series?" asks Esposito. "Art doesn't teach, it doesn't soften, it isn't benevolent: art divides," says D'Amore. "In a reality in which politicians, administrators, people who count make serious claims against minority groups, against women, also with apparently stupid jokes that however leave their mark, we present a cross-section of our country." This time in order to do this D'Amore had to learn Bulgarian. "I picked it up easily during a month's filming in Sofia, a beautiful city. Eastern Europe is a marvellous place, which is also imbued with suffering and devastation, but with bursts of infinite beauty."
