Francis Mayes - See You in the Piazza
With vibrant descriptions, Mayes finds the Italy that is never obvious—little-known villages in Marche, a Trentino hideaway with no cars, a Sardinian island with hidden coves, and enchanting places in Tuscany that you’ve never heard of. She savors sbrisolona, the crumbly, nutty dessert of Emilia Romagna; succulent fish from the Catania market; regional cheeses; dark chocolates of Torino; and in every location, the brilliant local wines. As Mayes zigzags around the country, she visits each town’s artistic treasures—castles in Le Langhe, Puglia’s Romanesque rose windows, the palaces of Genoa, and the elegant baptistry of Parma. Throughout See You in the Piazza, Mayes conjures the enchantment of the backstreets, the hubbub of markets, and the dreamlike wonder of that space between lunch and dinner when a city invites us to wander its nooks and crannies or lose ourselves in the pages of a delicious book. We’re invited along for the ride.
