Passion Italy


Season 1, Episode 2 of 6

A journey covering known tourist favorites but with special access to the artisans whose passion shapes this extraordinary vacation destination in unique ways. In Altamura, known as the 'city of bread, ' Alessandra speaks to a bread maker as he explains the 24-hour process that has been followed for generations and meets a cheesemaker making his name beyond this small strip of land between two seas with a fresh take on family tradition. Viewers will also watch as some of the area's most skilled artisans work, including a stone mason assembling a spiraling dome for one of the Itria Valley's distinctive white stone houses or trulli; a master glass craftsman whose lampshades use light to reflect the heart and soul of Puglia; and a luthier making instruments using nearly lost techniques.
