Mare fuori is a series that tells the story of various inmates and staff members of the imaginary IPM - juvenile penitentiary institution - in Naples.
The fiction is set in an imaginary juvenile prison, inspired by the really existing Penal Institute for Minors and located on the island of Nisida in Naples.
In reality, however, the scenes are shot at Molo San Vincenzo, the naval base of the Naples Navy.
Rosa Ricci and Totò in real life, the cameras off: Maria Esposito and Antonio Orefice, are engaged and their story began while they were shooting the second season.
Another couple in life, but with a different bond are: Nicolò and Domenico Galasso, who play Gaetano Sannino (Louse) and his father and they are father and son in real life, which is why they are very similar.
Salvatore Ricci, the father of Rosa and Ciro, is actually the lead singer of the Almamegretta, one of the most famous bands on the Neapolitan scene.
His real name is Gennaro Della Volpe but he is known by the stage name Raiz.
With Almamegretta he has released 9 albums, he has also released 4 as a soloist and has collaborated with Italian artists, including Pino Daniele.
Many of the songs in the episodes of Mare fuori are written by him or by the band he belongs to.
The song 'O mar for has become a true symbol of the spirit of the series, it was written by Matteo Paolillo, who plays Edoardo Conte.
L'attore è anche un cantante, nome d'arte Icaro, ospite anche a San Remo.
