Don Matteo 12, tonight’s previews. Who are the most loved priests and nuns on TV?

Thursday 23 Junein prime time on Rai 1, returns Don Matthew 12. The repeat episodes started a few weeks ago (we told you about it here) following the success achieved by thirteenth season which saw the departure of Terence Hill to make room for Raul Bova.

Waiting therefore for the fourteenth season (of the rumors whether it will be realized or not, we had collected some testimony here) Rai Fiction has decided to re-propose the adventures of the twelfth season and tonight we will see the fourth episode.

It’s called Honor your father and mother the fourth episode aired Thursday 23 June and it opens with the arrival of a mysterious man who shows up at the rectory. His name is Manlius and it is the father who Natalina he never knew. The two, of course, have some initial difficulty in speaking to each other but after the first hurdle they get closer and closer.

Don MatteoHowever, he doesn’t completely trust him and is convinced that the man has a secret he doesn’t want to reveal. Meanwhile Ines finds moral support with the PM, who has become his legal guardian, while Anne and Mark I’m struggling to find a common point to move forward without counting that she decides to ask Sergius help to repair your Beetle. Will it be a second chance?

For the twelfth season, the writers had opted to leave several references to the characters in each episode Ten Commandments. About that Terence Hill had initially shown some concern for such a “strong” choice ea Tv Smiles and Songs had leaked some initial uncertainty. “I have to admit that when I first heard about it, I was a little worried. I was afraid that Don Matteo became too serious, even boring. Instead it was very nice because the Commandment was there, but you had to go and look for it in history».

Even this choice to tell the adventures of Don Matteo has rewarded with very high ratings during the television broadcast. The point of view on this incredible and continuous public interest in fiction has always been explained by Terence Hill. The actor has a theory: «I think because he doesn’t follow trends. And then because, although it does not arise directly from a book, as happens for example with Montalbano, it still has a literary reference. The series was born thinking about Chestertonthe Protestant-turned-Catholic writer who created the character of Father Brown, the detective priest. He used to say that between the policeman and the priest it is the latter who always gets to the solution of the cases first because he knows the soul of the people. Just like Don Matteo”.

The concept of the TV series Don Matteo takes up a narrative linked to the church that starts from the now classic Don Camillo (the character born from the mind of Giovannino Guareschi) whose relationship with the communist Peppone it was a constant source of bickering in the small town of Brescello in the province of Reggio Emilia. A reality that showed the different visions of life united, however, by a deep friendship that went beyond politics.

The examples involving the clerical environment widen in the following years and also include stories with nuns: from the comedy Sister Act with Whoopi Goldberg until Elena Sofia Ricci who plays Sister Angela, a nun and a pop detective in fiction God help us.

Even the Oscar winner Paolo Sorrentino he let himself be tempted by spirituality involving international actors such as Jude Law and John Malkovich (and several Italian actors including Maurice Lombardi who we had interviewed here) into The Young Pope and the sequel The New Pope.
