Between twists, personal crises, rebellions and a new arrival, “Il Collegio” is back, the docu-reality made in collaboration with Banijay Italia, broadcast tomorrow at 21.20 on Rai 2. Some collegiate students will be called to take responsibility for their actions and will begin to have the first repercussions for the harsh discipline and study that are imposed. Not everyone seems to be able to do it: tears and tensions follow one another. Someone will find refuge in friendship, or who knows maybe in something more. The two classes continue to live their rivalry, committed to obtaining the coveted prize that is granted to the section with the best performance. But a figure in the faculty will make the task more difficult for everyone: the holder of the chair of History and Geography is on the way, and it will be a surprise that will leave anyone speechless. Some collegiate will not lose the desire to joke, however, but not everyone will be able to understand when the joke is no longer the case. Others will succumb to the temptation of rebellion, and a college girl will really go further. Between screenplays on black and white TV, typing lessons with Professor Zilli and exciting encounters in the background of Hemingway’s literature, sometimes the boys will not always be able to overcome boredom, but for many there will be the opportunity to open their hearts as it has never happened to him before.

Receiving the Pope in the living room: this is what happened on February 20, 2021 to the Hungarian-born writer Edith Bruck.

The bodies of the victims, unrecognizable, are those of Antonino Saetta, aged 65, president of the first section of the Court of Assizes of Appeal of Palermo, and of his son Stefano, thirty-five.

The same one who, that night of full moon, was found with his father’s body lying on him. Perhaps, Antonino’s last and last attempt to save his life, in the last embrace.
