Maria Chiara Giannetta in the role of Blanca

Over 5.6 million spectators for the Rai1 crime drama starring Maria Chiara Giannetta in the role of an aspiring blind criminologist

Genoa – Good premiere, as they say in cinematic jargon. “Blanca”, the detective fiction produced by Lux Vide, set in Genoa and directed by Jan Maria Michelini and Giacomo Martelli starring Maria Chiara Giannetta as an aspiring and stubborn criminologist who was blinded after an accident and Giuseppe Zeno as the inspector Michele Liguori, conquer the listening podium on Monday evening with 5,672,000 spectators and a share of 25.97 percent, the highest result of the season, excluding football matches.

Yet another satisfaction for Rai, which must be given the credit for having had the courage to leave the comfort zone typical of some fiction, for talk about the theme of disability, beyond any stereotype, without falling into forms of victimhood or pietism. “The public loved a character who brings together the fundamental motivations of the story that makes up our Fabbrica delle Storie. ‘Blanca’ is an example of the positivity and enthusiasm with which one can face life by reversing a difficulty into an incomparable talent ”, underlines Maria Pia Ammirati, director of Rai Fiction.

A result also welcomed with pride by Stefano Coletta, director of Rai1: “Blanca conveys the code of inclusion managing to make the life of a visually impaired woman normal, which makes its diversity an added value, its strength, its specialty, enhancing the talent of actors such as Maria Chiara Giannetta, Giuseppe Zeno and Pierpaolo Spollon ”. A success that is measured with Auditel data but also on social networks, in particular with interactions on Twitter, where the hashtag #Blanca has dominated for hours in the trend topic ranking. In addition to the plot, the detailed attention to photographs, lights and music that highlighted the unconventional beauty of Genoa, from the picturesque alleys to the Porto Antico, and that of Camogli, was particularly appreciated by the public.
