Program Description
Full of wild beauty and captivating traditions in its 23 hamlets, this is an undiscovered gem for many tourists. In Castelli, Alessandra meets a father and son maintaining the Maiolic ceramic tradition that dates back to the 16th century then arrives in Chieti in time for preparations for the stunning Good Friday procession featuring more than 100 musicians and a choir of 160 alongside hundreds of mournful townspeople. On the Adriatic coast, Alessandra introduces viewers to the son of seafarers who has rebuilt one of the distinctive wood structures called trabocchi used for fishing since the 15th century for modern times. Viewers also discover the lifestyle of artisans crafting in copper, wrought iron and stone, carrying on familial traditions inspired by nature and moved not by profit but by the passion for their craft.
