Editorial Reviews

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.

Beautifully realized. Having spent so much time in Italy with my family there I find this rich and rewarding and satisfying an oft needed revisiting when feeling homesick. A very nice way to return to Iyaly.

With a tremendous desire to travel to Italy myself, I watch any dvd about Italy that I can get my hands on! I bought this dvd on sale at Amazon for approx. $8, and for the price, I would say I got my money's worth. I would have been highly disappointed if I had paid full price, however, which is why I only gave it 3 stars. The cinematography was VERY well done and the narrator did a fine job, but it left me longing for details. I liken this dvd to a wonderful coffee table book. If that is what you are looking for, then I highly recommend this dvd. If not, then I recommend watching Samantha Brown's dvds on Italy - they make you feel like you are right there!

Poor choice as the videos, while beautiful, are highly repetitive through the 3 separate stories. The narration is poorly written and surprisingly unemotional reading from Paul Sorvino. After 30 minutes we shut this off as it was boring and poorly organized.Lots of fly over shots.

Although coming from Europe, having been in Rome many times and loving most of what Italy has to offer (a.o. history and food), for some reason this DVD did not impress me very much. It is difficult to say what the reason might be. Maybe the high percentage of aerial views, maybe some repetition here and there, difficult to pinpoint. If you do not know anything about Italy, it might be a start, but....., after having viewed this one, you might want to learn more about this fascinating country and rightfully so.

How could anyone not like this wonderful documentary! I would recommend it in a heart beat to anyone planning a trip to Italy, or someone who can only dream of going. The usual tourist places and out of the way unheard of places were presented beautifully....the foods, arts, music and history. An added plus was the soothing voice of Paul Sorvino, and a few clips of Francis Ford Coppola..
