Dream of Italy on PBS - Now on Youtube

In May on PBS, Dream of Italy launched a multi-part series exploring the magical allure of Italy.  The series starts in Tuscany, and features several of our friends that many of you know.  You'll see Matteo and Francesca during last year's olive harvest, Nora Kravis on her Chianti Cashmere goat farm, and Panzano's Dario Cecchini - the maestro of all things flesh.  

But you don't have to wait for your PBS affiliate to air the series.  The Tuscany episode has been uploaded to Youtube and is available here.  Set the video to its highest quality setting for your connection and enjoy!

Dream of Italy - Full Tuscany Episode

 

Dream of Italy - Description of the 1st Episode:  The Tuscany episode starts in the heart of Tuscany - Chianti - with a visit to Castello di Ama to learn how true Chianti wine is made and see the modern art that makes up the estate. The area is also famous for olive oil and we experience the olive harvest at Pornanino. Nearby, the show's host, Kathy, meets the very special cashmere goats that Nora Kravis raises at Chianti Cashmere Farm. Then it is off to Panzano for a  visit with philosophical butcher Dario Cecchini.
