Cnn Style launched its new series Cnn Style Italy, a three-episode documentary to discover the Italian cultural heritage in Venice and Palermo through the eye and the interviews by Derek Blasberg.

The journey starts with the world’s most important gathering of contemporary art, the Venice Biennale, featuring interviews to Ai Weiwei and Mark Bradford. The second and third episodes will take us to discover the church of San Sebastiano (Venice) and the runaway show of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (Palermo).

“We decided to make a documentary to describe the influence that Italian art, design, and fashion still have on the world – explained Francesca Church, producer of CNN Style – Cnn Style is an international channel which aims to explore the concept of “style” for an international and high-level audience, so it’s the ideal place to demonstrate it”.
