Great comeback on TV: from 28 June, "Il Lunch è Servito" will arrive on Rai 1, a historic game show that will be hosted by Flavio Insinna.
Big news arriving on Rai 1. After 28 years from the last episode aired, starting from June 28th at 2.00 pm Il Lunch is Served is back, the historic game show that debuted in 1982 on Canale 5. At the helm of program, one of the most popular faces on state television, Flavio Insinna.
This is certainly explosive news, as after almost thirty years one of the most popular containers of all time is back on TV and has marked its history. The first edition, as mentioned, was broadcast from 1982 to 1990 on Canale 5 with the conduction of Corrado, the historic anchor man who irreversibly marked the television narrative.
The first edition of Il Lunch è Servito, provided for the participation of two competitors who challenged each other in different tests, a quiz. The goal was to complete a board depicting the five traditional courses of lunch, namely: first course, second course, cheese, dessert and fruit.
The pilot episode was recorded in the now distant April 1982 in the Cinepalace studio in Rome. The essential scenography included a blue and white checked tablecloth, a plate-shaped wheel complete with cutlery on the sides and a hole at the top in the center.
The game show aired continuously for eight years with the conduction of Corrado. In 1990, however, the face of Mediaset had to leave the program due to a delicate lung surgery: in its place came Claudio Lippi, who carried on the show for two consecutive years. The last presenter was Davide Mengacci, who took the reins of the program for only one year: unfortunately, ratings became increasingly low and on June 26, 1993 what was the last episode was broadcast.
Now it is up to Flavio Insinna to take over the reins of Il cena è Servito, giving it a new luster. Expectations are certainly high, as well as the desire to bring back one of the programs that have marked the story and the story on TV.
The program will be broadcast after the 1.30pm edition of Tg1 and, once finished, it will be the turn of some fiction and Summer Live. An appointment not to be missed.
