The long-awaited sequel to Tre metri sopra il cielo is published in 2006. Because a love story never really ends. Sometimes a story grows and becomes something you would never have imagined. Step went away but now he is coming back. He’s about to discover that nothing stays the same, once you have left it. Or at least, compared to your memory of what it was. Thus, everything changes and shows its true colours. Step, riding his motorbike around the streets of Rome, runs into the Budokani gang. They’ve grown up and are somehow different. Schello, Lucone and the others are as rebellious as ever, even if a little more conscientious.
Pain leaves its scars inside of you, more so than on your skin. Babi will find some answers, too. Step will learn that in love nobody knows exactly what they want. Even when you think you’re sure. We will discover that respectability is just a vain attempt to try and change somethingimperfect into perfect. The Gervasi family will come to understand it as well, to their own expense. We will discover that a broken relationship between a mother and a son can have an unexpected development. And if everything explodes and goes wrong, there’s got to be some room for a smile and the will to start again.
Federico Moccia is back with his direct and intense style to show us that present and past are always tightly intertwined, even as they grow into our future. An unpredictable future. Just like love is always unpredictable, too.
Babi and Step are back. They’re back because distance only makes sense only if two people can look each other in the eye again. And although they have found some answers, thousands of new questions are still to come. Babi, Step, Pallina, Daniela, Raffaella, Paolo… all names we know well. They’re now back to mix with other brand new names. Because the wheel of life doesn’t stop. It can’t be stopped. And love has its own rules, beautiful and different from the ones you dreamed of.
