What a pity
26 June 2018 | by giudici76See all my reviews

I watched this show because everyone says it's one of the best tvshow that Rai has produced over the last years. I'm really disappointed. The story is interesting, the character of Adriano Olivetti is amazing because he saw a future that only after decades became real and good. How many of you have listen to the "ping pong tables" or the "relax area" in Google offices or in other modern companies? Well, he did all of this (and even more) in the 50s. Do you know Steve Jobs and the coloured Imac? Well, he did the same 50 years before with the "lettera 22". And there are a lot of other aspects of his life that could be told. But, and that's the pity, all of these stuff have been trashed to be focus on an irrelevant spy story and everything is just sketched. It's a complete lost chance. I give you an example: Adriano is with a girl and she asked how he had written his book, His answer: "Because I can't type". And the woman: "What? You created the best typewriter in the world and you're not able to use it?". Everything lasts 2 minutes, a couple of smiles and stop. This story is quite similar to the one in "Steve Jobs" by Danny Boyle when Woznyak accused Jobs to have created a computer even if he doesn't know technology or coding and so on. His answer? "Because I'm like an Orchestra director. I don't have to know how to play instruments, I must play the full orchestra". Applause! Same message, a completely different way to use it.

I really hope that someone else abroad (or even in Italy where there are a lot of talentful directors) has learned the story of Olivetti and that could do a better job.
