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 their private club. Opera used to be the same until Pavarotti brought it to the masses by giving free concerts so the ordinary man in the street could hear and appreciate Classical Music.Andrew does exactly the same thing with art.Georgio is a chef and together they explore the beautiful island of Sicilly.
A great programme makes you want to go there and this is what this series does.From the most amazing Ice Cream shop , a wonderful bread shop and the very moving 'Vasa Vasa' religious procession they make you ache to go and retrace their footsteps.
Andrew and Georgio bounce off each other and are the perfect example of a genuine
You will not be disappointed with this DVD and its a must watch if you are plannning to visit the island.
10 out of 10
Can't wait for 'ITALY UNPACKED '
