  • Ciao bella, a story of the modern/traditional italian family with star Claudia Ferri as successful business woman Elena Batista. Elena is trying as hard as she can to not relive her parents lives but life in little Italy isn't all it's cracked up to be.moreless

    Ciao Bella. Possibly the greatest depiction of real life since the footage of 9/11. The traditional Italian family, loud, nosey and huge. These qualities relate straight back to Ciao Bella. A mother and a father, two daughters, a son in law and all the rest of little Italy are part of the family Batista. Elena, played by Claudia Ferri (Mambo Italiano) is the main character playing an accountant working for her uncle's construction company (Nunzio Construction). After his 2 year absence, Elena’s friend since nursery school Elio Lanza (Peter Miller) comes back from Toronto and Elena falls head over heels for his new sophisticated look. With the amazing acting of Claudia Ferri, Ellen David, Tony Calabretta, Jessica Heafey, Peter Miller and the gorgeous Johnny Falcone as Maurizio the show is sure to be a major hit. Directors Jean-François Asselin and Patrice Sauvé along with writer Steve Galluccio have made the show a hit with Canadian audiences. Sure to be all the Italian family you’ll need all week.
