Francesco da Mosto takes a look at Italy as the land of adventure and ambition. Beginning in Venice with actor Ciaran Hinds, he considers how the town struck Shakespeare as the perfect setting for The Merchant of Venice . In Rome, Francesco discovers how Shakespeare used the city as a smokescreen to address the burning political issues of his day while avoiding trouble with Elizabethan censors. Francesco meets Shakespearean actor Mark Rylance, and visits the Globe to understand modern Italy's fascination with the English Bard. Finally he travels from Naples to the Island of Stromboli, the setting for Shakespeare's final great masterpiece - The Tempest .
