It’s hard to imagine a better life than Stanley Tucci‘s.
As a CNN host Stanley Tucci: in search of Italywhich is currently in the middle of its second season, the Oscar-nominated actor travels the country in hopes of finding the best stories, the best cultures and, of course, the best food.
During his travels – which took Tucci from Milan to Tuscany and from Umbria to Puglia – the 61-year-old actor visited some of the most beautiful places on Earth, which only served to validate this which he always believed to be true about his family’s homeland.
“It more than confirmed my suspicions and my belief that the regions of Italy are different from each other,” Tucci exclusively told E! News, “and that Italian culture is still very much ingrained in that person, and they appreciate that. That’s partly one of the reasons Italy has had so many governments over the past few years. It’s really cemented those suspicions.”
