Francesco da Mosto:
[on the Easter flagellants of southern Italy]
To smell the blood, to see the face of the little boy; it's a day I will not forget. It makes me feel like a foreigner in my own country.

I have just finished watching Francesco's series "Italy - Top to Toe" and I just felt I had to comment on it! It was an absolute joy from start to finish and has made me want to get on the next plane to Italy! I've visited Italy many times but not all of the places shown in the series. Francesco was a marvellous host - so enthusiastic, so charming, so Italian in fact! The Italian Tourist Board should offer him a job immediately as I'm sure after watching this, the number of visitors to Italy will increase! I especially enjoyed the last episode as it contained so much - tragedy, breathtaking scenery, joy, laughter and that wonderful surprise family reunion to end with! I hope that this series is repeated and even more that Francesco will be doing another series very soon. I have given it 10 out of 10 and would have given it 11 but for the fact that the series was far too short...Italy is worth more than 4 episodes surely!!
