Program Description

Subject: La Dolce Vita / Sweet Life Is life that sweet, just like the protagonist’s life in the movie? Is it living by extravagant parties with celebrities every night? Or is it hypocrisy or immorality to be practiced at work? Or is it being aware of the facts about life but denying them all? Is it better to live like a spoiled snob despite falling down into a deepless well? Would you rather ascend to the sky leaving all the burden behind? Truly, what makes life sweet?
