About this title


Ever since the Goths swept down over the Alps, Italy has been prone to invasion by armies, by poets and painters in search of inspiration, by archaeologists seeking to resurrect the classical past, and by millions of tourists bewitched by a somewhat vague picture at the back of their minds by an amalgam of sun, fun and Chianti. Luigi Barzini's book touches on nearly every aspect of Italian life; it examines Italy's many faces, landscapes, cities and peoples, it studies the Italians' habits, vices, virtues, hopes, failures and achievements, past, present and future. Doctor Barzini shows us Italy through the eyes of foreigners and through the eyes of Italians. Most important of all, he shows us Italy from his own highly original point of view.

About the Author:

Luigi Barzini, was born in Milan, Italy, in 1908. After completing his studies in Italy and at Columbia University, he worked for two New York newspapers. He returned to Italy in 1930 to become a correspondent for Corriere della Sera. In 1940 he was confined by the Fascists. With the Allied liberation he returned to publishing and founded Il Globo. Subsequently he served as the chief editor of several newspapers and magazines. His books include Americans Are Alone in the World (1958), From Caesar to the Mafia (1971), and Peking to Paris (1973). He died in 1984.
