It is not the first time that the series created by Álex Pina pays homage to Italian music. It all started with Hello beautifulthe song of the Italian partisans during the Second World War borrowed from the first season of The paper house by the Professor and his men as a symbol of resistance and has become, more generally, a symbol of the series itself. But, later, we also listened I love you by Umberto Tozzi sung by Pedro Alonso during his character’s wedding in a scene of Part 4. To this performance was also added that of Permanent center of gravity by Franco Battiato in the second episode of Part 4, danced and sung by the protagonists again during Andrés and Tatiana’s wedding.

But now he seems really comfortable with him and seems to have taken a liking to it. We can’t wait to find out more and await the new series with curiosity.
