After the suspension for a case of Coronavirus, you and I will not be back on the air: the words of Pierluigi Diaco
You and I will not be back on TV. This was announced by Pierluigi Diaco who in an interview with Adnkronos revealed that he will not be on the small screen to greet his audience in what should have been the last episode of the show. "We have not yet received the results of the swab from our collaborator – she said -. We sincerely hope she is negative and we all cheer for her. In the meantime, as it should be, Raiuno and the Rai task force, whom I thank for their meticulous attention, have not authorized us to return to air tomorrow for the latest episode of You and Me ".
Me and You, as is known, was closed a week in advance due to a case of Coronavirus in Pierluigi Diaco's staff. Until the last moment, the conductor had hoped for the possibility of greeting his audience, but it will not be so. "I am grateful to my friend Katia Ricciarelli for the extraordinary work, the cast, the editorial staff and all the production for the commitment and passion – explained the host -. Together we made the 65 episodes of this summer edition ".
"My most moving thanks goes to the audience of 'Me and You' – added Diaco – who became fond of our work and rewarded us with affection: with the 59 episodes of summer 2019 and the 17 of the Saturday night version in the autumn-winter 2019-2020, we broadcast 141 episodes of our broadcast in a year and a half. I am proud of the work done together with the team and I hope to be able to return in 2021 with a new project that I have already presented to Rai. Of course we all regret not having had the opportunity to greet our loyal viewers, but health and safety come first. "
Meanwhile, Me and You has been replaced by a new appointment with La Vita in Diretta Estate. From 7 September, the Today is another day program will start, led by Serena Bortone and created to replace Caterina Balivo's Vieni da Me. Instead, the future of Diaco remains a mystery. "I have not received any communication from Rai1 about my future", he explained a few weeks ago.
