Elsa Morante's Drama La Storia on Rai 1
Beta and Picomedia period drama La Storia will be aired by Rai 1 on Sunday, January 8 at 21:30.
The series was presented during the Rome Film Festival last fall with an International premiere.
The eight-part drama Elsa Morante’s La Storia, labelled by Variety as “Rai’s biggest event series of this year,” is based on Elsa Morante’s iconic bestselling novel. Italian A-list actor Jasmine Trinca (The Gunman) is leading the cast, which also features Asia Argento (xXx – Triple X), Elio Germano (Leopardi), and Valerio Mastandrea (Perfect Strangers). Directed by Francesca Archibugi, the drama follows Ida (Jasmine Trinca), a single mother of two sons, who hides her Jewish heritage and fights against poverty and persecution during the end of WWII and post-war Rome.

La Storia is produced by Roberto Sessa’s Picomedia and Thalie Images, in co-production with Beta Film and in collaboration with RAI Fiction.
