Skam Italy: What is it about?
Born as an experiment, Skam has met with great success especially for the its social language which fits perfectly with the topicality of the target to which it refers. A teen and young series whose format was born in Northern Europe, in Norway, to then have its all-Italian version, set in Rome. Julie Andem’s original idea has also found a winning formula in our country with an audience that has felt involved in the stories of the protagonists led by Ludovico Bassegato and Alice Urciuolo. Since its inception in 2018, Skam is now a successful production that Netflix has conquered by also taking over as producer. In relation to the idea of Skam 6, Bassegato had declared in an interview: “The most important thing is not to look for formulas, what matters is the story that we would eventually like to tell and based on the type of story we will understand how to tell it, without establishing percentages of new and old characters. What will always count will always be the story”.
