Reno Italiano

We had the chance to watch a great new program on HG TV called Reno Italiano. It is as you guessed about renovating homes in Italy. We were tipped off to the pilot by @girlinflorence (Georgette Jupe). A wonderful person who fills my twitter and instagram feed with pictures of beautiful Firenze. The host of the show is @arleneagibbs (Arlene A Gibbs) a LA transplant to Italy. She has a great upbeat personality and works well as the host. She is also an amazing decorator and renovation specialist. She seems to apply a lot of practical knowledge to the renovation and doesn’t seem like she’s one of those “unrealistic” renovators…yes, we are looking at you Hillary from love-it or list-it.

The production company @luckydogfilms (Lucky Dog Films) is a superb job at condensing the story of a multi-month reno into the span of 24 or so minutes. I think they did a really good job of the herculean task of widdling down the probably 100’s of hours of video into a cohesive story. I really hope that this show gets a full season and we can see other great stories that can inspire us to to move and start our own reno italiano.


About No Kids, Will Travel

In the eyes of their friends and family, Amanda and Zeke are a young jet setting couple without any real responsibility. In real life, the stress of work and raising a kitten push them to flee reality at every opportunity. The "lack of obligation" gives them the chance to explore the world.
