Nineties nostalgia is set to take Italy this September with National Geographic Channel Italy’s upcoming series The 90s in Italy, hosted by Wired Italia journalist Matteo Bordone (pictured) and based on the original series The ’90s: The Decade That Connected Us.

The series – produced by Rome-based indie Stand By Me – features interviews with Italian celebrities, politicians, musicians and athletes, and will explore a decade marked by technological innovation as well as significant political, social and cultural shifts.

September will also bring the Italian premiere of the original The ’90s: The Decade That Connected Us, Nat Geo’s recent follow-up to last year’s The ’80s: The Decade That Made Us.

“This all-Italian product enriches the series The ’90s thanks to the participation of personalities who marked that decade in our country,” says Alberto Rossini, VP of entertainment and factual channels at Fox International Channels Italy. “Once again, National Geographic Channel responds to the challenge of recounting the world around us with an entertaining tone of voice and unique, original content.”
