5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC DVD
I watched the series on TV and it was wonderful
Andrew is a wonderful art historian and instead of the usual gobbledegook and BS he speaks from his heart with genuine passion which allows people like me to see art and appreciate it as never before. So many ' art experts ' speak another language and its almost as if they dont want to allow us 'Un educated ones ' into...

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful
Terrible idea for a prog, two totally un-connected individuals going on a jolly to Sicily to talk at each other while not really engaging the viewer. AGD appears drunk for half the show while Locatelli tries to maintain his interest with some rather uninspired recipes.

Features random musings on what makes Sicily and Sicilians tick (hardly any of which have any...

5.0 out of 5 stars My Guide Book To Sicily, 21 Mar 2013

If you're going to Sicily, watch this. Lovely Oratorio Santa Cita in Palermo with all the putti mimicking the stucco they framed, the chocolate shop in Modica where the shop assistant was still swooning over Georgio. All visited, and made all the more interesting by having watched the expert musings of these enthusiastic Siciliophiles! A joy.

Having watched the series on television, I was hoping it would come out on DVD. Have so far bought three copies - two as gifts.
Just the thing to cheer the long winter evenings, and probably do much to help tourism in Sicily.
A wonderful balance on passions with the presenters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great food, great art!, 7 Jun 2013

This review is from: Sicily Unpacked [DVD] (DVD)
TV art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon and Michelin starred chef Giorgio Locatelli take us on a delightful journey around their beloved Sicily. Sharing a passion for all things Sicilian they make the perfect travel partners. We accompany them to the heart of the island as they introduce each other to the things they love most. Exploring the island through each other s eyes and hearts, they reveal how the layers of history have created a unique blend of art and architecture. As well as the pleasures of an intense and vibrant culture, they experience the sadness the island has come through and the strength of the Sicilian people as they rose up and challenged the Mafia. Together they document how the various conquering forces and the rich variety of different heritages have helped to shape both the food and the culture of this beautiful Mediterranean island.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Delicious!, 27 July 2013

This review is from: Sicily Unpacked [DVD] (DVD)
What tremendous teamwork - an absolutely absorbing mixture of Food, Social History and Artistic Heritage.
These two work seamlessly and engagingly together together, truly enjoying each others contributions to the whole - I loved every minute, finding the sections as digestible as the courses of Giorgio's Italian table - Andrew's artistic contributions unpretentious and informative - a perfect feast served up to us with gusto!!
I want to visit Sicily!
