Gomorrah season two
After Ciro Di Marzio (Marco D’Amore), the young, right-hand man of Don Pietro Savastano (Fortunato Cerlino) rose in the ranks of the clan in the first season, Don Pietro and Genny Savastano (Salvatore Esposito) find that the young prodigy is now their fierce opposition to reclaim their prestige over north Naples.
The gritty series, based on Roberto Saviano’s infamous account of the “Camorra” syndicate, stars Fortunato Cerlino, Marco D’Amore and Salvatore Esposito.
Exploring more from Saviano’s account, as previously depicted in Matteo Garrone’s Grand Jury Prize-winning film at Cannes in 2008, this acclaimed serial penetrates the familiar representation of mob culture by cutting straight to the core. Gomorrah - the series lets us get to know this medley of antiheroes and villains better, as they toil to maintain a status quo in a scandalous hierarchy of historical infamy.
