Synopsis:
You Don't Have To Be A Genius To Be Italian . . . But You Do Need To Know Manicotti From Armani . . . Who was Luigi Pirandello? How about Giorgio Vasari? What are the ingredients in risotto? Is Jack Nicholson Italian? The truth is, being Italian means being an heir to a rich, sprawling culture that goes back thousands of years, encompassing ancient mythology, modern cinema, religion, fashion, science, and most of all-the world's most beloved cuisine. This book is a fun, fact-filled guide to everything Italian, from how to make focaccia to discovering the Italian heritage of your favorite celebrities. Composed entirely in an easy-to-read question-and-answer format, this book contains such amusing, thought-provoking, and fascinating queries as: Which Roman god stands watch over the Trevi Fountain in the center of Rome? What is the largest church in Venice? Who lived in Italy before the Roman Empire? Where was Frank Sinatra born and raised? What famous rock stars are Italian? (You'd be surprised) For the first time, here is a compendium of everything you ever wanted to know about being Italian-plus a whole lot more you never would have asked! Stephen J. Spignesi is the best-selling author of thirty books, including What's Your Red, White, and Blue IQ0, Catastrophe: The 100 Greatest Disasters of All Time, The Italian 100, The Lost Work of Stephen King, The UFO Book of Lists, and The Complete Titanic. He lives in East Haven, Connecticut.
