Romanzo Criminale was a huge success in it’s native Italy. As a foreign drama we couldn’t use any actors dialogue in the launch promo so we concentrated instead on getting across that this show is based on the story of of the beginnings of modern Mafia. It all centres around a bloodthirsty family in Italy who were responsible for some of the most violent crimes the country had ever seen. This was one of the highest rating series launches for Sky Arts.
