Q: What is the this special about?

A: Dream of Italy: Travel, Transform and Thrive explores how Italy can change your life – whether adapting to the Italian lifestyle at home, traveling to Italy in a more meaningful way or deciding to move there. Dream of Italy host Kathy McCabe explores the 11 essential elements of the Italian lifestyle – the land, food, family, art & culture, beauty, pace of life, passion, movement, community, celebrations and sense of home– through the stories of full- and part-time expats Sting & Trudie Styler, Francis Ford Coppola, Under the Tuscan Sun author Frances Mayes, best-selling financial author David Bach, retiree Sally Carrocino and interior designer Arlene Antoinette Gibbs.

Q: How do I view the Dream of Italy: Travel, Transform and Thrive Special?

A: Dream of Italy: Travel, Transform and Thrive Special will be premiering on PBS stations and Create TV in June! A few stations will even begin airing it the last week of May. Americans are currently the only viewers who can see the special as its premiering on PBS stations and Create TV. For international viewers, there will be more options to watch online in 2022.

There are two versions of the special:

The pledge version which is 90 minutes and is the regular 60 minute special plus 30 minutes of breaks co-hosted by actor Joe Mantegna. This is a great opportunity to give to your local PBS station and get amazing premiums including a companion book, Rosetta Stone Italian lessons, jewelry and more (see below). This version will be airing heavily, especially in early June.
The regular version which is 60 minutes and doesn’t include the pledge opportunity. This will air most often on Create TV

You can find out more about your local air dates here, with more added everyday and there is a big primetime airing across most of the country on Saturday, June 26 at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on the PBS channel Create TV.
