Publisher Comments:

Richly painted maiolica ceramics from Tuscany. Supple Florentine leather. The cameos of Torre del Greco, carved from seashells. Parmigiano-Reggiano, the king of cheeses. Jaw-dropping glass from the island of Murano. The sweet and tart liqueur, limoncello, made from the giant lemons of Sorrento. Each year, millions of travelers flock to Italy in search of rich Old World cultural traditions and handmade crafts. In this revised edition, now expanded by popular demand to include a new section on leather clothing, author Laura Morelli revisits Italys best shops and craftsmen to provide a thorough shoppers guide to Italys best local traditions.
