Trivia

Throughout the series, Cardinal Voiello is depicted as a supporter of the Napoli soccer team and a huge fan of star player Gonzalo Higuaín. This detail proved humorous to Italian viewers, as Higuain left Napoli for Juventus a few weeks before the series premiered at the 2016 Venice Film Festival. See more »

An eccentric extravagant BEAUTIFUL project
17 November 2016 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

To tell the truth, when heard about the TV series of a young pope, I was absolutely sure it is a documentary one so I did not do any search beforehand. Well then, after I saw the first episode, I immediately wikipedied and googled PiusXIII, only to discover he has never existed (yet). To tell the truth again, I wanted to stop watching the series because usually i do not like something blown up out of the blue, like The Walking dead, f.e. But, captured of the very good quality of acting, nice music and extremely eccentric character of the Pope, I watched the second episode, then the third...and you know what? IT GOES better and better!!! I am fully immersed with my head and heart in these TV series. So far I am in love with 4th and 8th episode. Especially when the Pope gives his speech on peace. It is more than touching, it is perfect. On the whole, the project is fully in line with the Sorrentino's oscared movie "Grande Bellezza", touching music, knife-sharp changes in the editing pieces of the film, smart dialogues, and much more...so that corruption of everyone, low or high, just goes in the background. Highly recommended!
