The story is little known, but extraordinary and the miniseries tells, in particular, two years: 1847 and 1849, full of passions, loves, fights, subterfuges, poetic compositions, meetings and political debates. 

Two years in which the history but also the life of Mameli flows from the composition of the "Canto degli Italiani" to the great Oregina demonstration, when for the first time what is now the national team was sung by more than thirty thousand patriots.

“Mameli. The boy who dreamed of Italy” is a Pepito Produzioni production in collaboration with Rai Fiction, with the support of the Ministry of Culture – General Directorate of Cinema and Audiovisual.
