The Red Door 3, plot previews
It’s been three years since Vanessa (Valentina Romani) went away with Frederick (Carmine Recano) without looking back, leaving Cagliostro (Lino Guanciale) trapped between life and death. Today the girl attends a university in Slovenia, the Center for Studies of Parapsychology.
Cagliostro has broken all relations with her and, when Eleanor (Cecilia Dazzi) asks for his help to free her from the influences of that mysterious place, he refuses. Anna (Gabriella Pession) is about to leave the city, she has won a competition as a judge in Siena and is finally hoping for a new beginning for her and her daughter. The commissioner Paulet (Gaetano Bruno) is facing, at the same time, the problems of the city and an emotional mystery: although their relationship seemed to be booming, Star (Elena Radonicich) asked him for a break and disappeared.
One night, during a protest march against a high environmental impact power station – which also involves Philip (Pierpaolo Spollon)- the city of Trieste plunges into darkness. Among the drawbacks of the great blackout there is also a bad road accident: a vehicle goes off the road and crashes into an embankment.
The person who was driving dies. It is a death destined to change the fortunes of all the characters and lead them – for the last time – to investigate together with dramatic and unpredictable developments. Anna and Paoletto on one side; Vanessa and Cagliostro on the other, but with big news: in this case both could be guilty. They will suspect each other, while trying to figure out what is the invisible but very strong thread that has always linked them. Will they be able to find out, and in the end will Cagliostro be able to cross the Red Door?

La Porta Rossa 3, director and screenwriters
The series is directed by Gianpaolo Tescariwhich takes the baton from Carmine Elijahdirector of the first two seasons. “Inheriting the destinies of a winning series is not easy: it is a challenge and it is a responsibility”he said. “It means interacting with a galaxy of characters already sculpted in character and introducing oneself into the already knotted plots of events, asking to develop one and the other, attesting to coherence with the past and proposing new, unexpected looks together: it means trying to reshape a rich narrative material of references to illuminate corners that may have remained opaque, or simply ready to flourish with further light”.
The serial subject is instead of Sofia Assirelli, Carlo Lucarelli, Giampiero Rigosi. Assirelli and Rigosi are also headwriters and wrote the screenplays with Lucarelli and with David Orsini.
Red Door 3, where was it filmed?
