Searching for Italy 2022 episode 8 – Liguria: Stanley Tucci visits one of the most famous and frequented regions of Italy, the Italian Riviera, for the glitz and glamour of Portofino and the stunning picture-perfect fishing villages of the Cinque Terre. Liguria is a thin strip of mountainous land, sandwiched between the Alps and the Apennines and lined with rugged scenery and stunning coastal views. Its capital, Genoa, was once a wealthy merchant empire, and now offers such rich cuisine as personalised stamped pasta and its most internationally acclaimed export, Genoese pesto.
