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? With spectacular cinematography, evocative music, and interviews with Francis Ford Coppola and others, this three-part series takes you inside Italy today--a place where everyday life is an art form.
Narrated by award-winning actor Paul Sorvino and broadcast on public television, Brava Italia tours la bella Italia from the streets to the skies, bustling cities to peaceful hill towns, and snowcapped Alps to sun-kissed shores.
INCLUDES THREE PROGRAMS
The Proud Tradition Italy is a country that honors family history and celebrations, local crafts, rituals, and food and wine.
The Beautiful Life The cultural legacy of Italy includes Romanesque cathedrals, the art of Michelangelo, the voyages of Columbus, and a uniquely Italian zest for life.
The Eternal Country As Italy reinvents itself, the skills and spirit of those who have lived before provide a guide to the future.
DVD SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE bonus segments from the program Visions of Italy.
