Editorial Reviews

Northern TuscanyAn artisan knife maker in the walled town of Scarperia; Lucca's Roman amphitheater; a unique spa located in a steamy grotto; the marble mountains of Carrara, which have yielded white marble for more than 2,000 years; and a school for marble carvers.In our final episode, we start by visiting Villa Pitiana, a massive villa overlooking the Val d'Arno and cook wild boar and lamb with the talented local chef. Then, we visit the walled town of Scarperia, famous as the home of knife craftsmen for over 600 years. We visit a workshop and are taken through every step of the process of making these beautiful knives. Next we travel west to Grotta Giusti, a spa that is built around a humid underground cave thought to cure ailments. From there we go to the genteel city of Lucca, touring its small streets by bike and visiting the remnant of a Roman Coliseum. Entering the northwest corner of Tuscany, the hills turn to mountains, and the marble quarries of Carrara beckon. Source of Michelangelo's David's white marble, these strangely beautiful quarries are still producing marble more than 2000 years after the Romans first discovered them. The small artisan town of Pietrasanta on the coast is home to dozens of marble studios, and we visit a school of marble carving. Finally we stop at Capezzana for the olive harvest and watch as the black and green beauties are transformed into luscious olive oil. Series Description: These programs take an insider's look at the rich rural culture of Tuscany. With exclusive access to the workshops, kitchens, and homes of the Tuscan people, the series is a journey into one of the world's most beautiful places. Each episode shows viewers how the Tuscans themselves really live, visiting master craftsmen and country cooks, ancient farmhouses and rustic cheesemakers, while soaking up the singularly beautiful landscape. Camille Abbe hosts.

Format: DVD
As "armchair" tourists, as well as occasional travellers to Italy, my wife and I have viewed (and viewed again) the fine productions offered by Rudi Maxa, Burt Wolfe, Rick Steves and Samantha Brown. They focus mostly on cities and hilltowns and do a fine job of interesting and orienting the traveller in their subjects. Camille Abbe is lesser known but she and her producer/husband, Dekkan Abbe, offer a series of shows with equal production values and fine photography with the focus being on the Tuscan countryside. Camille is an endearing on-screen presence, projecting a bit of naivety and plenty of engagement with her subject. The series gets "close to the ground" and covers lots of "stories" and places not seen on other material. Even if you also have other videos of Tuscany, this is well-worth adding to your collection. Highly recommended!
