Why do series fascinate us in such an increasingly visceral way? What do we find so interesting about the main characters and their stories? How come that some specific and particular stories are so relevant to a large audience, and sometimes even question us deeply? A great American author and showrunner, one of the leading ones in this industry, will be in conversation with one of the greatest Italian scholars. They will both try to help us better understand a world that is increasingly part of our lives and our imagination.
