“Ulisse, il piacere della scoperta” (Ulysses, the pleasure of discovery) is a famous Italian cultural TV programme hosted by Alberto Angela. Most episodes are about Italy, each episode focuses on a city or a particular topic.
I recommend you to Google him or his father Piero Angela to discover plenty of videos about Italian history, culture, art and science!
This time I present you a fragment of an episode of the series. In this scene it is explained how and when pizza was created, why the most famous pizza is called “Margherita” and you will also have a peep into the historical heart of one of the richest cities in Italy in terms of culture, Naples.
