The Thule Academy is mentioned in the plot as being the center of the new crime ring. Though no direct reference is made to the Thule Society, formed in Munich in 1918 as a Middle East religious cult, and transformed into a Nazi activist group dedicated to destabilizing the Weimar Republic, the plot hints at a revival of that Nazi secret society behind the sophisticated computer-crimes and money-laundering of the present time.

as beginning.because it is return to the source. and last exercise to present organized crime more than dark mist. good occasion for Raul Bova to do a nice character and for Silvia Conti to discover real sense of justice. and sure, few images of places who becomes reflections of emotions. La Piovra is not a lesson or documentary. it is only a special picture of every society of our time. honest, cruel and far from clichés. good work, almost remarkable. that is all. a homage to Italian heroes in war against mafia. remember of relation between crime and policy. and short note about sense of ideals and force of sacrifice. each = explanation for great success of series. and for art to transform legend in reality.
