“Step by step and also through his investigations – Ricciardi – discovering the hearts of others – somehow manages to find the keys to be able to open, to afford to open his own”
Before we get into it Commissioner Ricciardi 2in this interview with Lino Guanciale, we investigate how the character has renounced love so as not to pass on his curse to possible children. In the second season there will be moments where he wavers on this choice and will question it again. The actor who plays him confirms it. “Yes, in the sense that all of this second season is played on this shot”. Then she explains even better.
“On one side, Ricciardi is perfectly aware and firm on the reasons that led him to behave in this way up to that point in his life” and does not deny it. On the contrary, “it can be said that formed his life on this sort of self-imposed moral diktat”, but not all the rules we set ourselves have the grip to resist. Indeed“there is one strength that – by now – has manifested itself within him and which – evidently – is a more consistent motive – let’s say – which pushes him to trivially look for what we are all looking for, that is a little happiness e you recognition from the person we love” it is Commissioner Ricciardi 2as Lino Guanciale argues in this interview.

It follows a “push and pull” That “it doesn’t stop creating friction until the end.” Looking to Commissioner Ricciardi 2in this interview Lino Guanciale has his say: “The fun and the beautiful, in my opinion, is to see how – step by step and also through his investigations – Ricciardi – discovering the hearts of others – somehow manages to find the keys to be able to open, to afford to open his own.”
In the second season, Commissioner Ricciardi shares the “weight of his pain”
The character of Enrica will be courted by Manfred. How will he react Ricciardi in seeing a woman he loved before another man? Before you think about Commissioner Ricciardi 2, in this interview Lino Guanciale restarts from the finale of the first season. Indeed, “season 1 closed with a close-up of the total dismay and of Ricciardi’s complete unarmedness in the face of this very painful spectacle, also because what happens before his eyes, there in Ischia, at the end of the sixth episode of the first season, is perfectly legitimate.” Luigi Alfredo Ricciardi, “up to that point, he gave no signs of a Enrica to be there. He has given a sign of loving her – without a doubt – but not of wanting to take steps with her also in terms of planning and relationships. So he reacts badly, badly, in the sense that suffers to death.”
There is no way around it. “He suffers like hell, but it is also true that – in these four episodes (of the second season, Editor’s note) we will see many of Ricciardi’s steps forward in – as I said before – also afford to share with someone else – and it is not said that it is only Enrica – the weight of her pain”. So continues the actor arguing what happens in the second season.

Since the fiction is based on the books of Maurice DeGiovanni, from whose pen the character of Ricciardi was born, it is obvious that those who have read them have a sort of advantage. Thinking about Commissioner Ricciardi 2in this interview, Lino Guanciale knows the readers of novels “they know well what history exists between Ricciardi and Enrica and what are the other shores that, in some way, teach Ricciardi to allow himself to love.”
In general, “the beauty is also seeing the path that Enrica takes this season, which is truly remarkable in terms of emotional maturation, at every level.”
Why Commissioner Ricciardi it can be extremely topical
The fiction is set in the Thirtiesbut in what way, Commissario Ricciardi – especially in this second season – can prove to be current?
Looking to Commissioner Ricciardi 2in this interview, Lino Guanciale explains that there are two levels of topicality. “The first degree of interest, topical, without particular political references from which I try to escape, in short, is that the further you go in the literary series and – therefore – also in the television series, the more you enter an extremely “mined” territory , for our national consciousness, with the thirties of the full twenty years of fascism. In this second season he gives more presence to what fascism became present – even architecturally – in those yearseven in a city like Naples, which is one of the last to be inhabited – so to speak, in its historicity, almost immobile, of Renaissance and Baroque beauty – by fascist architecture.”

Consequentially, “the historical settingtherefore, I think it is truly one of the most current moments of attraction, because that is a period that we tend to remove, with which we do not tend to come to terms with ease.”
The second level of actuality, however, is “an interest in a story of emotional education, not only sentimental, which – I believe – can be beautiful to follow, not only for a mature audience, but also for a young audience. It can be said that Ricciardi, from a relational point of view, wanted – precisely to protect others from himself – stopping almost at an adolescent stage. It has many things to discover. It takes courage – as much – to face certain historical injustices as to decide to open up to the world.”
