Synopsis

There are places in Italy where nothing has been left to chance. Where everything that is visible still holds the memories of unsettling facts and secret messages, unknown even to inhabitants themselves.

Esoteric Turin, steeped in symbols and obscure meanings, in a constant opposition between good and evil. The hidden tomb of Vlad, the legendary Count Dracula, researched for years and maybe concealed by an enigmatic gravestone in Naples. Science and magic at the Gonzaga court. A jump back in time in Renaissance Mantua, imagining the alchemical laboratories of duke Ferdinand I. Nails fixed within the skulls, cut-off legs and tortured bodies. A disquieting necropolis emerged during excavations for the high-speed train station in Bologna. In Florence of '800 an eclectic character disrupted science of the time. Girolamo Segato, the man who petrified bodies.

From science to religion, from history to archaeology: all areas of mystery will be involved in this intriguing series.
Each episode (10 in total) will talk about 3 cases. From Lombardy to Puglia, from big cities to smaller and charming towns, “Mysterious cities” (original title: “Città misteriose”) will reveal the most secret and never seen face of Italy.
