Francesco da Mosto, the charismatic presenter, author and architect takes us on a sweeping tour of the art, history and beauty of Italy. Francesco leaves Venice, his birthplace and home, and heads south to Sicily in an open-top Alfa Romeo. From the romantic north, through the beautiful cities of Florence, Sienna and Assisi to Rome and Naples at theheart of the country, Francesco gives us a true insider's guide to the land he loves. and, when he reaches the south, Francesco’s journey becomes persona l- his family lived here for over 500 years. Along the way Francesco explores Italy’s well-known treasures as well as its secret side: a visit to Romeo and Juliet’s balcony in Verona follows a trip to the Fiat Factory in Turin; the landscape gardens of Tuscany sit alongside the prima donnas of La Scala; the ruins of Pompeii are juxtaposed with Gracie Fields’ hideaway on Capri and the underground world of Naples contrasts with the beautiful chapel of St. Severo.
