These powerful and intimate portraits of countries use up-to-date information and full-color photography. Presented in a mini series format, three books per country ensures thorough coverage of all the important aspects. It also allows more students to work on different projects at the same time.

-- the people... unique customs, customs we share, problems faced by minority groups and women

-- the culture... modern festivals, ancient processions, food, games, and more

A rich connection between the people and art is at the core of the many traditions of Italy. Italy the Culture explores the religious history of the country, the festivals, the art, architecture, and language and literature of Italy.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Italy's rich culture Italy has one of the richest cultures in the world. The history, arts, customs, and beliefs of its people stretch back to ancient times. Since before the Roman Empire, which ruled Italy 2,000 years ago, powerful leaders have encouraged painters, sculptors, musicians, poets, and other artists to create masterpieces. For about 1,600 years, Italy has also been home to one of the world's major religions, Roman Catholicism.
