“Who loves is betrayed” reads the official poster of Fidelity (you can see it at the bottom of the article), the new original Italian TV series by Netflix which thus promises to subvert everything we think we know about love. The drama of 6 episodes, based on the novel of the same name by Marco Missiroli and streaming on February 14, is revealed today in official trailer, which you see below and which anticipates the unpublished piece Verosimile interpreted by Arisa, part of the series soundtrack. The song is written by Stefano Cipani, also director of the series, by Arisa and Mario Fanizzi, who also produced it.
The plot of Fidelity
Described as a story of jealousy, obsession, and insecurity that creep into a marriage when the doubt of betrayal is instilled, Fidelity is about two spouses exploring desire and betrayal, trust and passion. Carlo (Michele Riondino), part-time professor of creative writing, and Margherita (Lucrezia Guidone), architect turned real estate agent, are in love, but it happens that their desires stray away from the confines of their bedroom. Carlo craves the quiet beauty of one of his students, Sofia (Caroline Hall); Margherita fantasizes about her physiotherapist Andrea (Leonardo Pazzagli). The dream of a new apartment in the heart of Milan could be just what Carlo and Margherita need to strengthen their relationship which becomes a symbol and expression of fidelity, not only as a couple, but also towards themselves.
