Back in June I spent a couple of weeks working (as make up artist) on a new UK TV series based in South Italy. I can't write more about it until the programmes have aired, so more on that in September. But one of the things we had to film was Italy's aperitivo time. The place we had organized to film in turned out to be a rather empty piazza apart from a couple of old men sitting outside a bar playing cards. We ended up piling into the crew minivans and making a mad dash for the nearest big city, whilst furiously typing onto our phones asking for recommendations of where to film from various expat communities in Italy. At the time more than one of us thought what a shame it was that we were too far away from the Amalfi Coast to film the segment there.
La Brezza, the Buca di Bacco and the new Paradise Bar are the main choices.
This is all done straight from the beach by the way. No fancy clothes, beach hair is the norm and barefoot is fine too.
