Kathy McCabe is back on our screens with Dream of Italy: Travel, Transform and Thrive, a PBS special that concentrates on the transformative power of Italy.

 

 

“I know that just one trip to Italy can be completely life-changing because that’s what happened to me,” said host and executive producer Kathy McCabe, in an interview with Forbes. “Traveling to Italy can change how you live at home, how you see the world, and even what you do for a living.”

The special aired as a pledge special, providing viewers with the opportunity to donate to your local public television station and receive the accompanying book, exclusive extended DVD, Italian lessons and a Tuscan-made sunflower charm.
