Blanca has received the “DQ Craft Drama Award” as most innovative Tv series in 2021
Vanity Fair (23.11.2021)
“Blanca, RAI takes a risk and scores. With new and captivating visual language right from the opening credits and decidedly unconventional ideas for RAI1 – such as the use of a very saturated color palette and scenes cleverly orchestrated like the reconstruction of space in a soundstage as black as Blanca’s vision – the series hits the mark, thanks to the sensitivity of its theme and its unprecedented and decidedly original style”
