An intimate tour of the Italian way of life
What is it like to live surrounded by beauty, steeped in culture and tradition, immersed in style, creativity, and history?

A second hour-long episode of this public television series has filmed art and history, and often architecture which combines both. We get to see it with the educational narration about the culture and living among such a splendid country. Yet the Italian people balance technology and contemporary change with their unique past. You will see accordions, Murano glass, alabaster, cut glass, oral jewelry and more, up close, being created. And traditional cuisine holds its own against fast food attempts. Pure foods+local wines+talk = the unchangeable Italian dining culture.
The last episode offers the Roman roads to today's Autostrada demonstrating a modern Italy striving to continue the rich heritage left by past inventors and creators. Scenes of today entice viewers to become tourists. An amazing 21st century look at Italian culture. A total of 3 episodes, each about one hour.
