The main characters play a pivotal role in portraying the values and traditions of Rome, which is one of the most critical themes in the series. It will take you back to the 1960s, where you will be able to witness the glamour, extravagance, romance and magic that the Italian city exudes.

The trailer presented a view of Rome that was genuinely absurd because the series shows an inevitable reality that does not exist. In addition to the story around the world of Rome and Luna Park, it also focuses on political themes and characters. Netflix has publicized it as a period drama, but it will be a real work of magic. Leonardo D’Agostini and Anna Negri direct it.

The series was written by Tsabella Aguilar, who is a master of moods and atmospheres. His previous work has been chiefly focused on depicting human relationships, and he is now introducing Roman aristocracy into his work. This is not the first time the director has explored the world of nobility in the Renaissance era. This series is expected to be a big hit in Italy because it depicts everything that Italians want to see: good humour, good music and the nightlife of the city they live in.

It is essential to understand the historical background of the fascist regime, the use of Luna Park as a propaganda tool to distract people from their misery, and how this theme was told through the story of Nora and Rosa.

The colours of the costumes, accessories, sets, and props will take us back to an era in which everyone was dressed up and ready to go out. But also a time in which women were still under the tutelage of their guardians, and that even at the age of sixteen, they were forbidden from leaving home without a chaperone to accompany them.

Incredible Portrayal of Aguilar’s Writing-Luna Park is an Unforgettable Experience

The theatre introduced the characters of Luna Park. This Italian television series is one of its kind. It is something different from the other shows that are staged in Italy. And this is because it is a fantasy show that tells about the magic of Luna Park as Nora witnesses all things of the future.
