There are no obligations here, James.

James does one thing regarding the car in Our Man in Italy.

The Grand Tour fans would be completely bereft if James May hadn’t filmed at least one car-related episode during James May: Our Man in Italy. After all, Ferrari and Lamborghini are, in fact, Stradivarius of the automotive world.

Fun fact: Ferrari founder Enzo Ferrari himself once insulted a man named Ferruccio. Ferrari said he made the best cars in the world and Ferruccio was just a tractor manufacturer. Ferruccio decided to use the Ferrari insult as fuel and started his own luxury sports car company that bears his name – Lamborghini!

James ran into some technical difficulties by posting a short clip of his visit to the Montese cheese bank on his Twitter page, at one point he stopped and posted a picture of a cute donkey instead. Thanks to the magic of la dolce vita, the cheese clip James tried to post seems heavily embedded on his Twitter.

So what’s so interesting about a room full of cheeses if you don’t like Parmesan?
