Shooting the first trailer for South of Somewhere

See the Video Trailer: South of Somewhere (part 1), on the Sorrento peninsula south of Naples

It’s so easy to fall in love with parts of Southern Italy

Here we shot the first trailer for South of Somewhere (just hot off the video editing dock) focusing on southern Italy as a place of renewal and life return for me over the last 50 years.

The trailer begins with the stunner of a panorama that is my maternal ancestral town of Vico Equense and its Bay of Naples waterfront. Then it moves on the other side of the Lattari mountains to the Amalfi Coast and Furore, with footage from the Hostaria di Bacco and the dramatically heroic vineyards of Cantine Marisa Cuomo perched on terraces above the Med.

The finale returns to Vico waterfront, where you’ll see my cousin Vittoria Aiello at her famous restaurant – Torre Del Saracino—she runs with chef Gennaro Esposito.

I hope you find it almost as delicious to watch as it was to make. Look for parts 2 and 3 in the coming weeks of summer.
