Màkari is an Italian television series that struck me a lot, it struck me because in addition to being very interesting it is also very funny, this is based on the stories and novels of Gaetano Savatteri starring the journalist and investigator Saverio Lamanna. The series is produced by Palomar and Rai Fiction, directed by Michele Soavi and written by Francesco Bruni, Salvatore De Mola, Leonardo Marini and Attilio Caselli.
Although it was originally created as a miniseries, thanks to the huge success it brought to television, it is being renewed for a second season.
Saverio Lamanna is a journalist who has become the spokesperson for an influential politician in the government, he is fired after committing imprudence at work. Defeated both emotionally and professionally, Saverio then decides to leave Rome and return to Màkari, his native town in Sicily, in the Trapani area: here he rediscovers a great passion that has remained hidden for years, that of the writer. Driven by the curiosity that characterizes him, Saverio decides to improvise himself as an investigator and to investigate the various local cases, forming an unlikely trio together with the eccentric and light-hearted friend Peppe Piccionello and the determined architecture student Suleima.
