Yes, pagella is a extreme case but when you use bold text the vertical spacing is also messed up. You can avoid this when you use a fixed lineheight (e.g. \setupinterlinespace[line=14pt]) because the default distance is font dependant (default: 2.8 * ex-height).
```or one can play with these parameters, that default to:

\setupinterlinespace
[height=.72,
depth=.28]

(maybe we should have recomended values for specific fonts)
```
```
I had similar problems in the past and got to
2.9ex for Alegreya

(Just tried, didn’t calculate anything.)
```
```
How would this help for the original problem?
```
Some fonts have a different ratio (I forgot what font i did .7 / .3) but indeed an all-bold or whatever style change sometimes demands a local \setupinterlinespace (no argument).
```
```
I know there are cases where changing the height/depth ration can help but in this case the problem is caused by \strut which is bigger for the italic font.
```
```
A way to fix the wrong spacing here is to add a strut option to \setuplist (or use always the upright font to set the strut values).
```
```
Of course one could also tweak the ht/dp of a specific style using one of the pseudo features.
```
```
Also possible because the larger value for the ex-height of the italic font causes the bigger strut dimensions.
