William Shakespeare wrote: “Some rise with sin, some fall with virtue”. In the small universe of Città-Palazzo the struggle between good and evil puts a strain on Christianthe “holy thug” played by Edoardo Pesce, protagonist of the supernatural-crime drama produced by Sky Studios and Lucky Red in collaboration with Newen Connect (THE SPECIAL), from Friday 7 April with the two final episodes exclusively on Sky and streaming only on NOW. The last episodes, fifth and sixth, also available on demand from tomorrow, will go on Sky Atlantic tomorrow evening from 21.15.
Holding the reins of a situation now out of control becomes increasingly difficult for Christian (Edoardo Pesce), who faces the internal war going on in the City – Palace with the few means he has left. While Christian’s Friends grotesquely patrol the streets, defending an increasingly fragile kingdom, Matteo (Claudio Santamaria) continues his work and chooses Rachele (Silvia d’Amico) as his next target. It’s time to come to terms with good and evil, with Biondo (Giulio Beranek) and Black (Laura Morante), with violence and compromise. No one seems ready to face the consequences of what has now become a divine struggle. It will be Christian and Matteo who will have to face each other in a final clash, between themselves and with themselves, to find their way back and finally understand what really is the will of a God who seems to have abandoned the City-Palace by now.

The cast: Edoardo Pesce plays Christian, the protagonist who gives the series its name, alongside Claudio Santamaria in the role of Matteo, a Vatican postulator with unorthodox methods.
