Learn Italian with the News

Episode 8 - 19 August 2020


In early August a tourist broke the toes off a plaster cast by the great sculptor Antonio Canova. This fueled the discussion on "good" and "bad" tourism, and on the consequences of mass tourism. But many beautiful places in Italy are actually underrated and don't get the appreciation they deserve. From North to South, let's see some examples of Italian destinations that are not overcrowded and overpriced! English captions available.

After this presentation in slow Italian, Anna explains and translates some key words and phrases with additional examples. Lots of interesting adjectives in this video: INCAUTO, RILASSATO, OSPITALE, and many others.
