Summary
  • Brian Sewell follows the footsteps of young 18th century British aristocrats undertaking a grand tour through Italy, exploring art, architecture, manners and mores with erudition and wit. He journeys through Rome, Florence, Venice, Naples, Siena, and Milan showcasing cathedrals, palazzos, paintings and sculptures while giving insight into the travels and travails of tourists past
  • Episode 7. Pasteum, Tod, and Urbino. After musing over Greek ruins at Paestum, Grand Tourists braved bandit country en route to Venice. Urbino preserves the Renaissance style perfectly particularly in the inlaid cabinet doors of the Ducal Palace, which give the illusion of revealing the cupboards' contents. Episode 8. Rimini, Ferrara, and Mantua. In the 15th century, Sigismondo Pandolfo Malatesta, a member of the ruling family of Rimini, turned a Franciscan church into a personal, pagan-style temple, complete with elephant motif. Upon his ouster, it reverted to a church. Visiting an olive press, Sewell learns that "extra virgin" olive oil contains no more than 0.8 percent oleic acid. In 16th-century Mantua, Giulio Romano designed and decorated the Palazzo del Te as a monument to the pleasures of the flesh, in honor of Federico Gonzaga's mistress
