BELLA! ITALIA - I BORGHI
In this new edition of Bella! Italia. I borghi, first published to great acclaim in 2012, Stefano Zuffi expands his exploration of Italy’s small towns and all that they have to offer. This new edition contains even more information about the history and art of Italy, and offers brand-new text and splendid new images. Zuffi’s gaze travels from the Alps down to the island of Sicily. With insightful text that offers copious information, yet also imparts a sense of place, the author takes readers to both well-traveled areas in Tuscany and Liguria and hundreds of lesser known locations in Val d’Aosta and the Veneto, Lombardy and Piedmont, Apulia and Sicily. The past lives on in these places, miraculously untouched for centuries, their original layouts preserved. Here, visitors and readers feel as though past and future co-exist, and modern life unfolds against a backdrop that remains as it was centuries ago. These towns offer sights and stories that rival those of larger and seemingly more advanced cities. Italy is a country of endless charm. It combines history and progress like no other. It stands rooted in the past, but it looks to the future and welcomes the surprises it may bring. A set of maps is included so that readers can locate even the most remote towns and visit them both on paper and in person.
