Inspector Montalbano (Italian: Il commissario Montalbano [il kommisˈsaːrjo montalˈbaːno]) is an Italian police procedural television series based on the detective novels of Andrea Camilleri. The protagonist is commissario Salvo Montalbano, and the stories are set in the imaginary town of Vigàta, Sicily. The music for the soundtrack was composed by Franco Piersanti.

Inspector Montalbano has been produced and broadcast by RAI since 1999 to critical acclaim.[1] It originally premiered on Rai 2, and later on Rai 1 since the fourth season. Over 65 countries have broadcast the series, including on BBC Four in the United Kingdom, MHz WorldView in the United States and SBS in Australia.[2] In 2012, the series generated a spin-off, The Young Montalbano.

Synopsis[edit]

Montalbano's police station (Scicli)

Inspector Salvo Montalbano is in charge of the state police station in Vigàta, a fictional town in the fictional province of Montelusa based on the Province of Ragusa in Sicily, Southern Italy. Montalbano investigates criminal acts which he always manages to solve by reconstruction thanks to his intelligence and the help of his team which includes his deputy, Domenico 'Mimì' Augello, Giuseppe Fazio, Galluzzo, and Agatino Catarella.

“Il metodo Catalanotti” was filmed in 2019 and will be shown in 2021.[18] “Il metodo Catalanotti” will appear in English as "The Sicilian Method" by Andrea Camilleri, (S. Sartarelli, trans.), published 6 October 2020 by Penguin Books: New York.

Production[edit]

Given the success of the Andrea Camilleri novels, published by Sellerio (Palermo), RAI with Palomar [it], commissioned a television series, in co-operation with Sweden's SVT, Sveriges Television, of most of the novels and short stories. Each closely follows the plot of the novels, in some cases joining several short stories. Alberto Sironi, who died suddenly in early August 2019, had directed the entire series up till then. He was taken ill during the filming of three new episodes in 2019 and Luca Zingaretti took over the direction. Camilleri was teaching at the same time as when Zingaretti was studying at the Accademia Nazionale di Arte Drammatica Silvio D'Amico. Luca Zingaretti had to adjust his accent to Sicilian having been born in Rome. Inspector Montalbano was initially launched on Rai 2. It moved to Rai 1 after the second series.

Austrian actress Katharina Böhm, then Lina Perned, both dubbed by Claudia Catani, and now Sonia Bergamasco plays his girlfriend, Livia. Cesare Bocci plays his deputy and Peppino Mazzotta plays his most trusted detective Fazio.

Filming[edit]

The museum is inside the lighthouse in Scoglitti

Although Camilleri set his books in a fictionalised province of Agrigento, much of the series is filmed in the province of Ragusa. The exteriors of de la Mànnara (Fornace Penna) were filmed in Sampieri. Montalbano's offices are in Scicli, as are the offices of Commissioner Bonetti-Alderighi (actually those of the mayor). Filming is in Ragusa Ibla, Modica, Donnafugata Castle and the Donnalucata, Pozzallo and Scoglitti ports, Marina di Ragusa, Comiso, Santa Croce Camerina, and other places in south-eastern Sicily. The opening shots in the series include the Guerrieri Viaduct in Modica. The Coast Guard office in Scoglitti, in reality, is the small lighthouse museum.[19][20]

List of main locations[edit]

International transmission[edit]

In the Nordic countries the first 18 films are available as Box 1 (1–6), Box 2 (7–12) and Box 3 (13–18). All were released in 2009 (labelled 1999, the start date of the series) with Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish subtitles. They were released by AtlanticFilms AB on license from RAI Trade.

In Spain, there is a confusing situation where episodes are dubbed in Spanish, as well as Italian with Spanish subtitles being available in both box sets containing six episodes each and overlapping mini box sets containing two films each. Both are labelled, Colección Montalbano in identical boxes just to add to the confusion. Distribution is by Track Media SL.
