Spending time with a few socially minded Roman chefs and entrepreneurs, David learns how they have opened their kitchens and restaurants to give training and jobs to the influx of immigrants who now call the city their home, as well as supporting the children of these migrants with social programs encouraging them to learn music, dance and cooking. Outside the city, a project has been set up in Italy’s largest women’s jail, training inmates in making cheeses, and giving a new hope and skillset to these reformed criminals.
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.
