How to Live Like An Italian
A User's Guide to La Dolce VitaBook - 2008
We are fascinated by the Italians; their style, politics, diet, sex lives and cars, not to mention their incredibly beautiful country, to which many thousands of us flock year after year. Annalisa Coppolaro-Nowell gives us the skinny on what makes Italians tick. Why are they healthy and slim in spite of their carb-rich food? Why do they dress up for every occasion, even if it''s a trip to the market? Why do young Italians stay at home with mamma until well into their thirties? How can a country that produced Botticelli also produce Berlusconi? Taking a close look at all aspects of life in Il Bel Paese, this book is the essential companion for the curious and the committed Italophile.
