Synopsis:

It wasn't humorist Beppe Severgnini's first trip to the States. But when he and his wife arrived in Washington, D.C., in the spring of 1994, they agreed to stay for an entire year, renting a creaky house in Georgetown and seeing if they could stand a full four seasons in Uncle Sam's backyard. The result is this delightful, insightful glimpse at America--and the nation's capitol--through the eyes of a fiercely funny guest. Capturing the odd sights and scents of Severgnini's destination, CIAO, AMERICA! is a tale of quirky discoveries in a country obsessed with ice cubes, air-conditioning, recliner chairs, and after-dinner cappuccinos. From their first encounters with cryptic rental listings to their back-to-Europe yard sale twelve months later, the Severgninis explore their new territory with the self-described patience of mildly inappropriate beachcombers. Succumbing to their surroundings day by day, they find themselves developing a taste for Klondike bars and Samuel Adams beer, and even enrolling in a frequent flier program. By the end of his visit, Severgnini has unearthed a new take on the States, and written a laugh-out-loud yet affectionate tribute to it.
