Filming has started on Vanina Guarrasi, a RTI - Palomar co-production, produced by Palomar, with the support of the Sicilia Film Commission, starring Giusy Buscemi, Giorgio Marchesi, Claudio Castrogiovanni, Orlando Cinque, Corrado Fortuna, Dajana Roncione, Giulio Della Monica, Danilo Arena, Paola Giannini and Alessandro Lui.
Just a few days ago, the first scene was filmed in Catania for the Canale 5 drama directed by Davide Marengo, based on the novels by Cristina Cassar Scalia published by Einaudi and written by Leonardo Marini.
Giusy Buscemi plays Vanina Guarrasi, who, after a brilliant career in the Palermo Anti-Mafia Squad, moves to Catania to embark on a new adventure as deputy superintendent of the Mobile Squad where she brilliantly solves complicated murder cases. Young and full of life, Vanina is on the run from a painful past, linked to the death at the hands of the Mafia of her father, a policeman, and to her relationship with Paolo (Giorgio Marchesi), a magistrate also working in the anti-Mafia squad. Convinced she has left this new love behind, Vanina will discover that this bond is still capable of troubling her heart. Just as another man has entered her life.
