A film, television and stage actor, Stanley Tucci has an impressive 136 parts to his credit in a career that has spanned nearly 40 years. He’s also dabbled as a producer, director and voice actor on his way to three Emmy Awards and nominations for an Oscar, a Tony and a Grammy.

Friends and I had small criticisms of the series here and there. Why, for example, did Tucci talk at length about cholera in Naples while overlooking the 17th-century plague that wiped out nearly half of Florence, leading to the creation of the wine windows Tucci spotlighted. And why did he visit a vandalized bookstore in the Roman neighborhood Centocelle, an isolated incident that happened two years ago, while ignoring Cinecittà and the city’s rich cinematic history?
