She will also look at the history of the region including visiting Michelangelo’s masterpiece, David, and one of the world’s great museums, the Uffizi Gallery. She’ll also talk with Clet, an artist who plasters street signs with stickers.

Lee Cowan reports on the true tale of Pinocchio. Rita Braver talks with author Frances Mayes, who in 1990 bought a house in Tuscany, and whose story would become the basis for the bestselling book – and movie – “Under the Tuscan Sun.”
