Throughout history, Genova, home to Christopher Columbus, has always been known as a pretty port town playing host to mariners with an open, edgy, and transient lifestyle. Today is known as the Amsterdam of Italy, where anything goes! David meets a group of singers who have created a chorus to entire all the people of the neighbourhood - including those whose professions may raise an eyebrow within the community - to sing, eat and celebrate diversity. David also gets a tour of the city’s great street food and learns the secret to making one of the world’s favourite pasta sauces… pesto!
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.
