Plot[edit]

In the town of Cesenatico, Summer and Ale are two people with opposite lifestyles. Summer is a very introverted young woman; she hates the summer and decides to find a job at The Grand Hotel Cesenatico to financially support her mother as her jazz musician father has left for the summer to work abroad. Summer has two best friends, Sofia and Edo, and a younger sister named Blue. Ale is a young man originally from Rome who is a famous motorcyclist. He has taken a break from competing with his racing team for the summer after a dangerous racing accident nearly kills him. His father is his greatest supporter and wants him to go back to racing once the summer is over; however, Ale has lost his interest in racing. Ale's mother, Laura, is the manager of hotel where Summer works. Ale falls in love with Summer and tries to woo her.
