At the end of October, the well-known actor Stanley Tucci was “spotted” walking around the markets of the historic center of Orvieto, engaged in his new project for American TV. The last Hollywood star to be roaming around Umbria
It’s called “Searching for Italy” and it’s the CNN series dedicated to Italian regional cuisine starring the multi-award-winning American actor Stanley Tucci (winner of two Golden Globes and Oscar nominated for Best Supporting Actor for “Amabili Resti”).
On 28 October, the well-known Hollywood star arrived in Orvieto to visit the Duomo and the underground city.
Then, he was entertained among the stalls of the characteristic city market in Piazza del Popolo, to reveal Orvieto’s excellent food and wines. And, finally, a stop at some of the restaurants in the historic center, to taste the typical dishes of the area (WATCH THE VIDEO).
The episode starring “La Rupe” will be broadcast on CNN in the spring of 2022.
Stanley Tucci is just the latest Hollywood star sighted “walking” around Umbria. In fact, last summer the green heart of Italy was elected the favorite holiday destination by many American VIPS.
From Anthony Hopkins, who immortalized his Italian holidays in the name of cooking and relaxation on his social networks, to Robert Downey Jr. who chose Umbria for his holidays, spending a few days between Norcia and Assisi.
But Umbria is also the Italian region where international movie stars have bought dream properties.
Like the famous director George Lucas who bought and restored a 16th century monastery in Passignano Sul Trasimeno. A magnificent estate in which, the father of Star Wars, often hosts his VIP friends, from Steven Spielberg to Robert De Niro, passing through Francis Ford Coppola, also a lover of the Bel Paese.
In addition to Hollywood stars, Umbria is also inhabited by many other VIPs, international and otherwise.
