Maccioverse: the plot of the series
At the center of the story is Maccio, a worker 2.0 which is stuck in a prodigious and risky technological tool. The protagonist finds himself living in a perennial job call and will have to extricate himself between the real world and the virtual one. The series is set in a Dystopian Rome and takes a look at how technology can change our lives in the future and in part it is already doing so, with the usual irony that distinguishes Maccio Capatonda.
The comedian presented his work at the FeST, the TV Series Festival which was held on Saturday 24 September in Milan, with a panel dedicated to the series. On Sunday 25 September a premiere of the project was broadcast, projected entirely in the metaverse thanks to the work of the Czech company Dream Space. A unique experience, which in its own way represents a historic point for TV series.
