With the announcement of the release date of the new season, a press release was released with the official synopsis.

Professor Dante Balestra is now an essential presence in the lives of his students, including his son Simone. The beating heart of the series remains the Leonardo Da Vinci high school with the class attended by Simone and Manuel (Anita’s son) where Dante, with his usual non-conformist and brilliant attitude, uses philosophy to help the kids solve their problems, including loves complicated, intrusive parents, daydreams and dashed hopes.

In the cheerful chaos of the class, boys we know answer the call – Luna, Matteo, Laura – but also new faces, like Nina, a girl of Slavic origins who hides a complicated life path, Rayan, a promising footballer who arrived from Africa and more interested in football than in studying, Viola, a disabled girl with an impossible character, and finally Mimmo, Dante’s former student who ended up in juvenile prison, who the professor managed to have entrusted in semi-freedom to the Leonardo Da Vinci library, and who will become friends with Simone.


If the boys’ problems and adventures are many and compelling, Dante’s are no less, especially in his private life.

The relationship between the professor and Anita is going swimmingly, to the delight of his children Simone and Manuel: they have recently all gone to live together in the large villa on the outskirts of Rome. But this apparent balance is soon broken by a series of events. First Dante’s ex-wife, Floriana, decides to return to Rome and re-establish herself at the villa, forcing him into an uncomfortable three-way cohabitation with Anita. Then Nicola reappears in Anita’s life, a charismatic and charming manager who – in addition to being Viola’s father – will also turn out to be Manuel’s biological father.

Two unexpected entrances which, with their secrets, will force Dante and Anita to deal with their mutual feelings. As if that wasn’t enough, Dante finds himself having to deal with a dramatic news, which undermines all his certainties.

How does A Professor end season one?

It ends with the twelfth episode, “Nietzsche”, the first season of the Rai fiction on the exciting story of Dante Balestra (Alessandro Gassmann). During the last episode the prof. he discovers the truth about his son Simone (Nicolas Maupas): Finds himself in danger after teaming up with Bar (Loris Loddi).

In the meantime, Dante is also accused of having handed over the keys to his son guilty of organizing the secret party at school. The man’s goal was to get closer to the boy who was still offended by the secret kept hidden from him for a long time: Dante has another son, Jacopo.

Later, understanding Simone’s discomfort, Anita (Claudia Pandolfi) finally decides to tell Manuel the truth about her brother: the child was Simone’s twin who died when he was three years old. At first, however, the truth pushes the protagonists of this story to close ties with each other. Later, however, suffering and loneliness pushes them to want to find each other again, seeking comfort in each other.

In the end, in fact, after recovering from a bad accident, Simone accepts the truth about his brother and goes to his grave together with Manuel, now always by his side. In the meantime too Dante puts negativity aside by finding the courage to ask Anita to start dating for real. The season then ends with a nice passionate kiss.
