David Rocco’s Dolce Vita: Season 5
David Rocco’s Dolce Vita 5 lets viewers experience the heart of Italy through the eyes of its biggest fan. David makes his triumphant return to Florence and the Tuscan region to reconnect with old friends and make new discoveries along the way. Home of cucina povera, Chianti Classico and the birthplace of the Renaissance, Tuscany is where food, art, fashion and culture are part of everyday living. Arguably one of Italy’s most popular regions for tourists, David shows the audience the undiscovered parts of Tuscany, all in search of simple, accessible Italian cuisine.
David experiences all that Tuscany has to offer: fishing the storied lagoons of Orbetello, braving the crowds at the Palio di Siena, celebrating the wheat harvest in the Tuscan countryside and even uncovering Florence’s small but vibrant Indian community. He also explores the birthplaces of some of Italy’s most famous (and delicious) exports: gelato, balsamic vinegar and Parmigiano, only to discover that the food producers are just as interesting as the food itself. The series captures the way i Toscani celebrate life and live their very own Dolce Vita: with passion, humor and spontaneity.
