One of the world's most visited countries stand’s empty of tourists - the statue of David is deserted, Colosseum is clear, Venice is vacant. Yet, some of the most talented artisans continue producing their art and Italian culture continues to thrive… notably without any outside commotion. With exclusive access to film Italy like never before, this series is a once in a century opportunity. In a world where most products are mass produced, we're showcasing the incredible artisans who still create amazing things by hand. The precision, the customization, the delicate perfection, the love for the art - all this combined provides a unique perspective into what keeps traditions alive. We travel throughout Italy to meet some of the country's most remarkable makers as they teach the next generation of apprentices the skills that can't be written or taught in a classroom. From glass blowing in Venice, olive oil making in Tuscany, silk spinning in Como, and the culinary traditions of Emilia Romagna. Each episode helps us appreciate the exceptional eye, the discerning palate, the distinct finesse and, most of all, the love of the craft this work requires. ‘Italy Made With Love’ offers an intimate look into Italian culture, where we find the hidden treasures in each unique region and let the locals share their stories, heritage and culture, as only they can.
