Everything is ready for the new edition of “Dancing with the Stars”, which will be broadcast on Saturday, October 21, in prime time, on Rai1 and Rai Italia.

With his unique and unmistakable style, Palando highlights the unbridled passion of Italians of all ages, social conditions and geographical origins, for pair dancing and more: Italy is a country of dancing, and a program that knows how to tell it from many points of view.

The first of the 2023 edition is Andrea Antonello, a thirty-year-old autistic boy: he accompanies him on this special adventure that will see him experience a performance to the tune of “Vent’Anni” by Massimo Ranieri. His father will be Franco, who will tell his story of resilience, determination but above all a lot of love. The vehicle, in the true sense of the word, for this love is called a motorcycle. In fact, through his passion for two wheels, Franco was able to create a deep, empathetic relationship with his son Andrea, and together they rode a motorcycle and went around the world: 6,200 kilometres, across India from New Delhi to Mumbai and all the way to Kolkata. But they also crossed the United States, still on a motorcycle, and reached Brazil. And even other flights between Italy, Morocco, Greece and the Northern Cape.
