The plot

Maccioverse tells about Maccio, which we see here as a 2.0 worker. Incorporated in the technological tools that on the one hand are very useful but on the other turn out to be destructive, the protagonist is stuck in a continuous flow of work calls, screen freezes, back pain from a sedentary lifestyle and side effects caused by this lifestyle. (which now unites almost all of us).

Maccio will find himself grappling with a challenge: trying to extricate himself between the virtual and real world to face an adventure that is a bit like the adventure of all mankind in the New Millennium.
Set in Rome in a dystopian future à la Black Mirror, Maccioverse speaks of today (and – unfortunately – also of tomorrow). The series tells how society’s tastes, habits and even feelings will change due to technology. The latter is a double-edged sword, something redeeming on the one hand but also what makes us slaves.
