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, Siena and Assisi to Rome and Naples at the heart 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 personal - his family lived here for over 500 years. Along the way Francesco explores Italy's well-known trwasure as well as its secret side: a visit to Romeo ad 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; in Rome, Bernini's Baroque sculptures are juxtaposed with the modernist architecture of the Palazzo degli Uffici, and the underground world of Naples contrasts with the beautiful Chapel of St. Severo.
