She has decided to show herself without filters and without make-up to tell of the suffering she has experienced due to acne, a problem that characterizes her and for which she has offered herself to the network on an empathetic and supportive level.

This also contributes to making her much loved by the public and by the people of the network, who find enormous comfort in her example.

The TV series about Lidia Poët
The TV show coming to Netflix tells the story of the first woman to join the bar. It will be halfway between a historical portrait and a genre thriller legal.
Lidia Poët’s law is set in Turin at the end of the 1800s.
A ruling by the Court of Appeal of Turin declares her enrollment in the register of lawyers illegitimate, which prevents Lidia Poët from practicing her profession.
The reason why his registration would be illegitimate is linked only to the sex of the lawyer in question: she is a woman, therefore she cannot.
Lidia meanwhile tries to make ends meet by getting a job at her brother Enrico’s law firm. In the meantime, you are preparing the appeal against the sentence of the Court of Appeal of Turin.
The mysterious journalist Jacopo Barberis, who is Lidia’s brother-in-law, passes important information under the table, guiding her into the recondite and hidden meanders of the city of Turin.
In addition to Matilda De Angelis (protagonist in the title role of Lidia Poët), the cast includes Eduardo Scarpetta as the journalist Jacopo Barberis; Pier Luigi Pasino in those of Enrico Poët, brother of Lidia; Sara Lazzaro and Sinéad Thornhill, respectively Teresa Barberis, wife of Enrico, and Marianna Poët, daughter of Enrico and Marianna. Dario Aita instead is Andrea Caracciolo.
The series is directed by Matteo Rovere, the director to whom we owe Matilda De Angelis’ debut on the big screen, namely Fast as the wind (2016), and by Letizia Lamartire.
Lidia Poët’s law is written by Guido Iuculano, Davide Orsini, Elisa Dondi, Daniela Gambaro and Paolo Piccirillo.
