"At first, the idea of a group of seven worried me, it was not obvious to create the necessary harmony – confessed Fotinì Peluso, who plays Barbara -. Yet it is there, it is not fiction. I have never had such a close-knit group, I realized this year, with the pandemic, how important it is to be able to count on solid friends. Just as I rediscovered the power of music. I'm a bit of the black sheep of the group, I didn't go to the conservatory but I studied piano since I was a child. Playing made me feel good ”.

We shot concert scenes while the industry was down. An auspice ". Filming had been blocked last February due to the pandemic, but luckily it has resumed and the creators ensure that the story will be even more fascinating and engaging.
