The New Italian Job (Foreign Correspondent)



The old is new. Ditching conventional careers, a generation of hip young Italians is rediscovering the grand tradition of “Made in Italy”. Hamish Macdonald takes an exhilarating road trip to meet them. Not even a big recession could take the fizz out of La Dolce Vita, Italy’s beloved good life. Just the opposite, it seems. Bleak career prospects are nudging an army of educated young Italians to go back to their roots and turn a euro out of home and hearth, food and culture. This program explores a hipster revolution led by young Italians who are finding beauty as they re-embrace tradition.
