After much anticipation season one of the praised Italian crime series Romanzo Criminale is now available to own on DVD from Monday 14th September.
The series explores the connections between an organized crime gang of drug dealers as they begin to regulate the heroin trade in Rome, Italy. Gang members Libanese (Francesco Montanari)< Freddo (Vincio Marchioni) and Dandi (Alessandro Roja) come to grips with the trade as well as each other; not to mention other organized mobsters in the city.
Romanzo Criminale is based on the bestselling novel by former judge Giancarlo De Cataldo who served in a Roman court since the 1970s. Inspired by the Banda della Magliana case that occurred between the late 1970s until the early 1990s, the novel recounts the relationship between the prolific gang members and the organized crime that surrounded Italy.
The series originally aired on the UK digital Sky Arts and received critical praise for its acting and subject matter.
