Curiosities and production of the second season
Summertime’s second season was an even more challenging challenge for Cattleya than the previous one. It was creatively, in telling a world that made viewers dream in the throes of a global pandemic. It was productive, in finding continuous solutions for the security needs that that same pandemic made indispensable.
The series this year is stratifying and growing, exploring new avenues together with its characters. A year has passed since last summer and life has gone fast, as it only happens at that age. Some loves have strengthened, some have just been born, others have passed away or have simply changed shape. Each of the protagonists is looking for their own path, discovering who they are and who they want to become.
We like to imagine that the kids who reflect themselves more closely in this story can in a certain sense grow together with the characters, as only happens with the serial story. But that is not all. The success of the first season told us that Summertime manages to speak to a much wider audience.
Older generations who find in the stories of our protagonists the meaning of those summers spent looking at the sun, imagining the future, looking for themselves while looking for someone who makes our heart beat faster.
Another element that makes this season even more original than the previous one is the adrenaline. The first season touched in a tangent way the story of the world of motorcycles. A story that this year becomes full and decisive, becoming even more representative. The challenge was to bring this sporting arena to the screen in a realistic way and to do so, the collaboration with the
The Romagna Riviera still remains the backdrop with its beaches and small urban centers that have welcomed the return of production with open arms, despite the needs amplified by the anti-Covid measures, which daily required an effort of collaboration and support.
And those beaches, those small urban centers, are still all there, enhanced by that photograph that was one of the creative cornerstones of the first season. A photograph that this year flexes and expands, contaminating engines and loves to enhance their contrasts.
Among the great news of this second season, Summertime is also set in Spain, and more precisely in Barcelona, where one of the narrative lines of the story develops. The Spanish world brings with it new characters and to expand the cast in fact there is the very young Amparo Piñero Guirao, a talent who arrived thanks to one of the biggest bets this year: the virtual casting.
In Italy, the cast has been enriched by great personalities such as Lucrezia Guidone, Giovanni Anzaldo and Marina Massironi, who have joined the young protagonists bringing great professionalism and energy in the new stories that will excite the audience of this second season.
