Ciao! The Victory Garden embarks on a six week tour of the both the majestic and intimate gardens of Italy. The first giardino that international correspondent Adrian Bloom tours is the Tuscan garden of Paul Gervais, author of the charming novel, "A Garden in Lucca: Finding Paradise in Tuscany." The story he shares with Adrian is about making a contemporary garden, inspired by and set within the structure of an old, half-abandoned one.

Chef Marian learns how to prepare a classic Tuscan fall dish that celebrates the late harvest, “Pomodoro e Uva,” green tomatoes and grapes, with Chef Carlo Cioni of Ristorante Da Delfina in Artimino, near Florence.
