A mystery that from 1990 reaches the present day, when a body is unexpectedly found. Arianna’s, Elio’s desperate love. Who is the main suspect in his murder, 30 years later. Trying to find out what really happened to Arianna and to exonerate himself from the accusation of being the one who killed her, Elio will have to carry out an investigation between past and present which for him perhaps also hides the hope of being able to change things and save her.. .
The soundtrack on Spotify
The soundtrack of the series is also markedly nostalgic, which alongside the original music composed by Michele Braga includes many hits from the 80s and 90s, for an unmissable playlist – curated by Valerio Errico and Marco De Angelis and now available on Spotify – which is a real dive into the past and lists many of the wonderful hits of the summers of those years: from “Bette Davis Eyes” by Kim Carnes to a-Ha’s “Take on me”, Depeche Mode’s ” Enjoy the Silence”, the Tears for Fears of “Shout”. And again, among others, “The Power of Love” by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, “Amore Desperato” by Nada, “Un’estate italiana” by Edoardo Bennato and Gianna Nannini and, obviously, “Un’estate fa”. Of the famous song by Franco Califano which gives the title to the Sky Original series, in One Summer Ago both Mina’s beloved version and a surprising unreleased cover created especially for the series by Francesca Michielin (feat. Altarboy) find space. She said: «Reinterpreting this great classic of Italian music was fun and stimulating. “Un’estate fa” has been revived in many versions and this one, so fresh and with an 80s flavour, I particularly like. Collaborating with Altarboy – he continues – was a great honor for me, I love their productions. I’m really happy to have taken part in this project, a beautiful series with a wonderful cast.”
