Speak the Culture Italy
BE FLUENT IN ITALIAN LIFE AND CULTURE

Speak the Culture: Italy reveals the cultural forces
and figures that have shaped Italy and the Italians.

The Italian character is complex,
contradictory, alluring and infinitely
variable: the heirs to the greatest
empire of the Ancient world but
supposedly ungovernable; the
guardians of the Catholic Church
and exemplars of la dolce vita; the
maestros of modern design, so
immersed in tradition.

And then there are the idols of
Italian culture: Dante, Michelangelo,
Verdi, Fellini – who were they and
what made them so special, so
Italian? Easily read and beautifully
illustrated, Speak the Culture: Italy
makes sense of it all.
