The TV series starring Anna Foglietta and Francesco Acquaroli tells the drama of Vermicino. Here is the release date, plot and cast
Alfredino Rampi fell into that cursed artesian well about 60 meters deep on June 10, 1981. After three days of useless rescue attempts, the child died. The event shook the public opinion enormously, also because the event was, for the first time, at the center of a RAI live broadcast that lasted 18 hours and kept the public glued to the TV with the hope of seeing the child alive again.
The lack of organization and the difficulties of intervention in such situations, then led to the birth of a special body, the Civil Protection. That of Alfredo Rampi is an Italian drama, which is still known as the Vermicino Incident. Sky has decided to make the first product focused on this event so important and tragic chronicle of our country. The title will be Alfredino: an Italian story. In the cast several Italian actors, including Francesco Acquaroli and Anna Foglietta.
