A new season of Sky Original family drama A Casa Tutti Bene – La serie is about to begin. Winner of the 2022 Nastro d’Argento as best series of the year with the first season, A Casa Tutti Bene - La Serie returns on May 5 on Sky (and available to stream on NOW) with the highly anticipated eight new episodes.
Produced by Sky Studios and Andrea and Raffaella Leone for Lotus Production - a Leone Film Group company, the second season was written by Barbara Petronio (head writer and creative producer), Camilla Buizza, Gabriele Galli, Andrea Nobile, and Gabriele Muccino, the great author and director who has brought hugely successful family stories on film for about 20 years and who has chosen Sky as the home of his first TV project. He will also be the artistic supervisor of the second season of the series reboot of his blockbuster film of the same name.
The new season sees Carlo as he reconciles family life with entrepreneurial projects, while Paul continues his legal battle against Olivia, Sara rediscovers love, and Alba, now without secrets, rebuilds her life. Yet once again, the past comes to disrupt the cards. At the centre of the story is always family: Carlo, Paolo, Sara, Riccardo, Diego and Ginevra face unexpected trials, each driven by their own desire. New loves and torments inflame their lives, and, as unfair as it may seem, parents' faults always fall on their children. Thus, the protagonists meet an inescapable fate: happiness is an illusion impossible to grasp, especially for them.
A large choral cast plays the members of the large family at the center of the story. Laura Morante (Lacci, Ciliegine, Ricordati di me) leads the cast as Alba Ristuccia, following the death of her husband (in the first season played by Francesco Acquaroli) who became the owner of the San Pietro restaurant, in Rome, and Carlo's mother, Sara and Paolo Ristuccia, played respectively by Francesco Scianna (Baarìa, La mafia uccide solo d'estate, Latin Lover), Silvia D'Amico (The Place, Hotel Gagarin, Christian) and Simone Liberati (La profezia dell'armadillo, Suburra).
Euridice Axen (Gli Infedeli, Loro, Il Processo) is Elettra, Carlo's ex-wife, while Sveva Mariani plays Luna, the couple's daughter. In the role of Ginevra, Carlo's current partner, is Laura Adriani (Tutta colpa di Freud, Non c'è più religione). Antonio Folletto (Gomorra - The Series, Capri-Revolution, I bastardi di Pizzofalcone), on the other hand, is Sara's partner, Diego.
Then the Mariani family, who by the will of the head of the family Pietro Ristuccia have inherited an important share of the family restaurant: Paola Sotgiu (Suburra - the series) is Maria Mariani, Pietro's sister and mother of Sandro and Riccardo Mariani, played respectively by Valerio Aprea (Boris, Figli, Smetto quando voglio) and Alessio Moneta (1992, Baciami ancora). Emma Marrone (Gli anni più belli) plays Riccardo's companion Luana, while Milena Mancini (La terra dell'abbastanza, A mano disarmata) is Beatrice, Sandro's partner.
Also returning to the cast are Maria Chiara Centorami (Come saltano i pesci, Universitari - Molto più che amici) and Mariana Falace (Gli anni più belli, Si vive una volta sola). And with Eugenia Costantini again in the recurring role of Olivia, Paolo's former companion and mother of his son Giovanni, played by the very young Federico Ielapi (Pinocchio, Quo vado?, Tutti per 1 - 1 per tutti), and Marco Rossetti (Il Cacciatore, Speravo de morì prima, 7 donne e un mistero) again as Maurizio Mandolesi, Carlo's friend and business partner.
Several absolute debuts in the cast of the second season: French singer-songwriter and actor Tom Leeb (Cyrano, mon amour, 8 Rue de l'Humanité) will play a charismatic successful chef courted by many restaurants, in Italy and abroad, with an ambitious project for San Pietro; Camilla Semino Favro (Survivors, My Mother, Diaz - Don't Clean Up This Blood) will be Rebecca Baldini, a successful lawyer and Sara's old friend; Yan Tual (Liaison, Outlander, Rifkin's Festival) will play Olivia's new partner, Pierrick; Filippo Valle (Elisa di Rivombrosa, Don Matteo 7, Woman Detective) will take on the role of Giuseppe, a new character related to Beatrice.
