Do you like to travel? Learn a foreign language? Find out how to make your way through a foreign country—such as Italy? Or just go on an imaginary trip by following the author and her sister-in-law during their fourth stay in Italy? Whichever is your interest, you will find joy in reading this latest account and following these two from the tiny town of Riva Trigoso on the Italian Riviera to Genova, Roma, Venezia and Milano. Since 2001, they have made life-long Italian friends who help to make these journeys possible and unforgettable. Bella Italia will help you fall in love with Italy and the Italians while learning important phrases and protocol in their country. The author has studied Italian language and culture at Nazareth College’s Casa Italiana, in Rochester, New York since 2001 which enables her to connect with the people she meets on her journeys throughout Italy.
Sixteen beautiful color photos taken by the author of Riva Trigoso, Genova, Roma, Venezia and Milano are included in this book. Jean has had her photos published in two books, America at the Millennium, Best photos of the Century, and Meadows of Memories by The International Library of Photography.
