Vanilla Beans and Brodo: Real Life in the Hills of Tuscany

Vanilla Beans and Brodo: Real Life in the Hills of Tuscany Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Isabella Dusi, a native Australian, settled in Montalcino, a beautiful mountain eyrie famous for its wine and the proud nature of its inhabitants. Her acceptance into this close-knit community was a hard-won thing and has inspired Isabella to capture the true spirit of Montalcino. Vanilla Beans & Brodo tells of the violent history of this medieval village, which has lefts its mark on the character traits of the Montalcinese, and also offers a rare insight into the anxiety, joy, fun, and pressure of daily life as it unfolds with the seasons. An evocative story of the rivalry between village neighborhoods, of football fever and festival pageantry, Isabella Dusi destroys the myth that Tuscan villages are tranquil places, and instead reveals a life infinitely rich and full of dramas.

Synopsis:

Isabella Dusi came from Australia to settle in Montalcino, a Tuscan mountain eyrie famous for its wine. This text is her account of life there, offering a rare insight into the anxiety, joy, fun and pressure of inhabiting this medieval village.
