  • Randal White

    An absolutely wonderful book! The author has written a series of fascinating short essays about Italy. Divided into an "A to Z" format, these are tidbits you would never get in the run-of-the-mill tour guides or history books. It covers subjects ranging from Gelato to Venus's Navel. Loads of insights into the Italian food and drink you love, as well as fun historical tidbits. It's the kind of book that you can pick up and read a couple of the entries, then set back down until you find some more

    An absolutely wonderful book! The author has written a series of fascinating short essays about Italy. Divided into an "A to Z" format, these are tidbits you would never get in the run-of-the-mill tour guides or history books. It covers subjects ranging from Gelato to Venus's Navel. Loads of insights into the Italian food and drink you love, as well as fun historical tidbits. It's the kind of book that you can pick up and read a couple of the entries, then set back down until you find some more time. You can't get lost. Or, you can be like me, and just devour the book!

    As a personal note, my wife and I have been blessed to have the most wonderful foreign exchange students live with us. One of our favorites, an Italian girl, has had her family "adopt" us. We visit them, they visit us, plus we talk all the time. I brought up several of these little stories to them, and they were amazed that I, an American, would know such things! It was really fun!

    If you have any interest in Italian life and culture, take a break from the "I bought a villa in Italy" books, and give this one a chance. You will be amazed!
