For their part, from Amazon Originals in Italy they were “delighted” to give life to a production that “will experiment like never before with perspective and narration.”

“We will bring viewers in Italy and around the world the story of a woman and an artist who has combined her empathy, creativity and extraordinary talent to create something extraordinary,” they said.
