Includes all new video footage, shot on location in Italy, which is integrated with the main text through the Videoteca section of each chapter. (It is the same video program as Prego 6e). The video presents the vocabulary and grammar of each chapter in a series of real-life situations. Students follow the adventures of Roberto, an Italian-American journalist from Boston. Roberto is in Florence to write a series of articles on Italy and Italians for an online newspaper. He has enlisted Giuliana, an old family friend who now works for the Ufficio Informazioni Turistiche, to help him while he is in Italy. Each segment includes a functional conversation and beautiful theme-related cultural footage. Because the video was shot for Prego!, it includes two additional chapters that students may wish to watch to see the end of the story. The video is accompanied by pre- and post-viewing activities in the Videoteca section of the main text. Additional information on using the video in the classroom and a complete videoscript are included in the Instructor’s Manual, on the Instructor’s Resource CD-ROM, and as part of the Instructor Edition of the Online Learning Center to accompany In giro per l’Italia (www.mhhe.com/ingiro2).
