Rome has always been a multicultural city, and that’s apparent now, more than ever. David spends a few days with members of the world-renowned musical group, L’Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio, a band mostly of immigrants, that has achieved international success. He speaks with Piccola Orchestra di Tor Pignaterra, a smaller youth group, which has nurtured the children of migrants from lower-class neighbourhoods and allowed them to express their creativity through music, while breaking down cultural barriers and stereotypes.

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.
