MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE 
NEW TEASERS AND POSTER FOR RICHARD MADDEN SERIES
Your Sunday bliss for today comes in the form of the gorgeous first poster and two new teasers for RAI's upcoming new historical saga MEDICI: MASTERS OF FLORENCE (also known as Kingdom of Gold) which is beginning its eight episodes launch over in Italy October 17th! The teasers are in Italian, but they will give you a glimpse into the visual splendour of our latest period set TV obsession starring everybody's favourite prince charming Richard Madden as the young prince of the political dynasty and their enterprising son, with Dustin Hoffman playing the patriarch Giovanni de Medici, as they ascend from simple merchants to power brokers. The series has already been sold to Germany, Japan, Australia, many European countries, Latin America. The premiere screening will be held in Florence at the Palazzo Vecchio on Oct. 14 and RAI has already ordered the second season!

KINGDOM OF GOLD
 The Medici family suffers a great loss with the death of its patriarch Giovanni (Dustin Hoffman). When the designated heir Cosimo (Richard Madden) discovers that his father was poisoned, he decides to keep the news to himself and tries to get on the assassin’s trail. Cosimo, who has long abandoned his dream of becoming an artist, then takes his father’s place as head of the bank and of the Signoria, where he needs to defend himself against the hostility of the noble families. When the Duke of Milan annexes the city of Lucca away from Florentine dominion, Cosimo must decide whether to side with the nobility, as Giovanni would have done, or to free himself from his father’s shadow! Click to read more on the series in our previous premium spotlight! Billy Campbell will play Bernardo Guadagni, Gonfaloniere of the Signoria – the ‘speaker of the house’. Stuart Martin is Cosimo's brother Lorenzo! Ben Starr, Steven Waddington, David Bradley will all guest star as well.

    1. You should watch him in Klondike too, if you haven't already, he was amazing in that series as well. He is always a great lead!

  4. Whenever I hear Dustin Hoffman, I can never pull a picture of him in my mind. Then when I see him, I think, 'oh, the guy from meet the fockers."

  5. Looks like it will be interesting, but I always think of Dustin Hoffman doing a bit of comedy with his performances.
