Actors from the Italian television series La Piovra (The Octopus) take a break after a Mafia assassination scene. La Piovra attracts millions of viewers across the country. Its focus on the relationship between organized crime and politics has in the past brought fiction close to reality, with some episodes uncannily foreshadowing the future. Both Church and Government have previously expressed displeasure with the series.
