In "Young Pope" miniseries there is a scene where Tonino Pettola gets surprised in his house by a visit from the pope and his cardinals. Upon noticing them he asks:
"A cosa devo il motivo di questa visita?"
Is 'il motivo' really necessary in this sentence? Wouldn't it be enough to ask "A cosa devo questa visita?" This seemed a bit redundant to me and I was wondering if maybe this was just a way of characterizing this Tonino Pettola person?
