Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The editors collect 30 fellow travelers' tales (some of which were published between 1999 and 2006), contending that: "Italy is a cultural homeland for all of us in the Western world...." A map situates the stories which explore the range of the country's regional delights (e.g., with "Under the Tuscan Sun" author Frances Mayes) and quirks ("The Pasta Nazi" in Rome). Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

With its wealth of natural attractions, pervasive sense of history, brilliant cuisine and wines, and warm and inviting people, Italy has always held a special place in the hearts of travelers. But Italy offers so much more than its must-see attractions. In this exciting collection, captivating storytellers reveal the possibilities of a long-term stay, covering both the much-loved sites and lesser-known places that unveil the countrys heart and soul. Learn what its like to live with a rural Italian family. Be led behind the scenes of the artisan studios in Florence. Meet Frances Mayes in Cortona and a godfather in Sicily. Discover the glories of a meal that is “only fish” in a Mediterranean village. With its story-a-day format, 30 Days in Italy creates a compelling composite portrait of the distinctive pleasures of this enchanting country.
