Product Description
<DIV><DIV><DIV><P>Casting off a northern winter and an orderly life, a family decides to sell everything and go to Italy--to search for art and its meanings, for freedom from routine, for a different path into the future. Their three-month journey around the Italy of Raphael and rented villas, the Piero della Francesca trail and the tourist furnaces of Amalfi, the simple glories of pasta and gelato. Through the lens of Italian culture, landscape, and cuisine, Rachel Cusk reconsiders our impulses toward indulgence and escape, inspiration and succor, creativity and domestic life.</P></DIV></DIV></DIV>
