Luigi is the protagonist of this series from RAI Fiction and Wildside. He's forty years old with a wife, a little girl, and another child on the way, when he suddenly finds himself having to spend a lot of time in the oncology unit of a hospital. Although La linea Verticale (the vertical line) is a work of fiction, it's based on a real story, and we are able to see, through Luigi's eyes, what daily life in an Italian hospital is like.
