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?

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.

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.
