Canada’s Globetrotting Cultural Explorer Returns in the Exclusive Premiere of David Rocco’s Dolce Italia

Sunday, March 8th on TLN Television

Toronto, ON – (February 28, 2020) Rediscover the great cities of Italy and la dolce vita with celebrity chef and TV host, David Rocco, in the new series, David Rocco’s Dolce Italia, premiering Sunday, March 8th at 8pm/et, exclusively on TLN TV.

In his latest 13-episode TV series, David returns to his beloved Italy where the people and their stories run parallel to the art, music and food of the country’s greatest cities. Join him as he creates new experiences in Italy’s most vibrant locations. Explore Milan, Verona, Venice, Cinque Terre, Bologna and Italia’s capital Roma and discover these famous cities’ scarcely known secrets.

From the hip cosmopolitan Milan to Venice’s ancient water canals and down through the Eternal City of Rome, this series captures the way Italians celebrate life and live their very own dolce vita: with good food, humour, passion and spontaneity.

In anticipation of the premiere, an online sneak preview of the series’ first episode is available on tln.ca. Episode one, entitled Lost Venice, features a city rich in tradition but facing great change as David sets out to find the Venice that tourists don’t often see – a city deeply rooted in its history that’s more than just gondolas and Carnavale.
