Prime Video revealed the following information:
From the sunny shores of Sicily to the snow-capped mountains of the Alps, Italy is one of James’ favorite countries in the world – a place brimming with style, beautiful cars, Nutella and over two millennia of culture.
It is also a land of contradictions, simultaneously at the forefront – of science, of fashion, of engineering – and yet its crumbling infrastructure, endemic corruption and crushing public debt describe, on paper, a country and a society that seem on the verge of failure.
“Reminds me of a Garibaldi cookie,” James says. “It shouldn’t work and yet it’s a triumph.”
