    In this episode, Cassandra and Laura discuss simple ways to stay connected and immerse yourself in the Italian culture. Whether you are traveling Italy or dreaming from afar there is always a way to connect on a personal and more meaningful level. The hosts share some of the people, cities and sites that have made them feel one with the country. And how well-known authors Frances Mayes, Ondine Cohane and Nicky Pellegrino; New York City pizzaioli, and even those in the world of music such as Andrea Bocelli and Davide Napoleone have inspired them to embrace the Italian culture in a different way than before.
