The old Venice is no more. The rising sea-level, overabundance of tourists and high cost of living has caused most of the Venetians to flee the once grand city. But for those Venetians who have stayed behind, there is now a struggle to hold on to their heritage, culture, and way of life. David sets out to find the Venice that tourists don’t often see and is slowly disappearing. A city of rich tradition and deep roots, and that’s more than just gondolas and Carnivale.
David returns to his beloved Italy, but this time to experience cities he’s never been to. The northern cities of Milan, Verona, Venice, Cinque Terre, Bologna and Italia’s capital Roma act as main characters in this series. Join David as he explores these famous locations in ways that have never been seen before, where the people and their stories run parallel to the art, history, music and food of these great cities. This series captures the way the Italians celebrate life and live their very own Dolce Vita: with good food, humour, passion and spontaneity.
