Michelle Damiani - Il Bel Centro: A Year in the Beautiful Center
Il Bel Centro: A Year in the Beautiful Center
Fall under the spell of an Italian village through the eyes of an American family.
When Michelle Damiani dreamed of living in Italy, she imagined her family as it was in Virginia—her husband filling every moment with work, her teenage son experimenting with sarcasm, her daughter smiling at the scent of lilacs, her baby-cheeked son methodically clicking Legos together, and herself hovering over the happiness of them all—only surrounded by ancient cobblestone alleys and the sound of ringing Italian.
What she didn’t know was how Italy would work to change them all.
Immerse yourself in authentic village life and live vicariously through hilarious moments, joyful discoveries, dramatic upheavals, embarrassing miscommunications, and mouth-watering meals.
At once uplifting and enchanting, this spellbinding journey feeds the soul as it sweeps readers into the heart of Italy.
Il Bel Centro: A Year in the Beautiful Center includes recipes for delicious Umbrian dishes as well as professional-quality photographs.
