How to Be Italian
by Maria Pasquale

This beautiful book is a stylish celebration of all things Italian.
An education in drinking to savour the moment, travelling indulgently, and cherishing food and culture. A lesson in the dolce far niente: the sweetness of doing nothing. We may not all live in the Bel Paese, but anyone can learn from the rich tapestry of life on the boot.
