Disney has announced a brand new Italian Original documentary series, “Raffa”, which is going to be released on Disney+ in Italy on 27th December 2023.
The series is about Raffaella Carrà, who is one of the most famous and best-loved Italian star abroad and shares a look behind the 60 million records sold, the television hits, the films and international tours.
A symbol of freedom and gender equality in the 1970s, the queen of public TV in the 1980s and an LGBTQ+ icon in the 1990s, Raffaella is a legend that transcends all cultural and generational barriers and that audiences all over the world have loved for over 50 years.
Yet Raffaella is also a mystery to which no one holds the key. Reserved person by nature and very jealous of her private life, Raffaella is a woman who has to fight to assert herself in a world of men, but also one who has loved and suffered.

A poster for the documentary series has also been released:
The docuseries will retrace the artist’s public and private life, starting from her childhood in Romagna, marked by her father abandoning her, and then her “front cover” flirt with Frank Sinatra, her two great loves, her regret for a missed motherhood, her many triumphs and the odd failure, her crises and rebirths.
The documentary series consists of three one-hour episodes and has been produced by Fremantle. It has been directed by Daniele Luchetti and written by Cristiana Farina alongside Barbara Boncompagni.
While no international release for the documentary has been announced yet, as with most international Disney+ originals, most are made available worldwide.
