  1. You need to be in Hollywood. The music with Guiseppe, your narration, just the whole execution of your videos made me fall in love. I don’t wait to see celebrities pass but I think it makes it easier to accept death. Thank u🙋🏽‍♀️

  2. Bravissimo! Another splendid tour. So calming, informative, educational and respectful. I learn so much more about these past artists through your charming narrative. Thank you for including the Non Catholic Cemetary, one of my favorite spots to visit in Rome. Grazie!

  3. I scour my subscription for new things from you. I admire your work so much. Thanks for showing us all these beautiful places. No doubt you are truly enjoying being able to travel the world. Come back safe.

  4. What a GREAT! episode I visited Italy myself not too long ago and it was incredible. I actually bought a poster that collaged together a bunch of different famous Italian films. Their posters were always the best.

  5. Ennio Morricone's score for John Carpenter's The Thing is one of the greatest ever written for a horror movie and showcased his amazing musical subtlety in a way that his more famous works had difficulty doing. Requiescat En Pace, Maestro!

  6. Well another amazing video Arthur loved every minute of it thankyou can't wait for Part 2. Pity you never came to visit Edinburgh Greyfriers Cemetery

  7. Thanks for another great video. I’m so glad you were able to go to Italy despite all of the covid restrictions. My favorite vacation of my life was when I went to Italy with your mom. What a wonderful country!!!!

  8. Is there a story behind the flashing lights/flashing candles on all the graves? From my North American eyes, it just looks like Vegas or a Carnival to me, so I wonder if there is a specific meaning to them?
