Sabrina and Impiatore e Simona Tabascowho charmed Americans (and us too) with their performances in the second season of The White Lotus, received an Emmy nomination, the most important awards on American TV. The two actresses, respectively interpreters of Valentina and Lucia in the second chapter of the anthological series of Mike White set in Sicily, they will compete for the statuette in the category Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.
