Since childhood, Paolo Tullio has returned each summer to his hometown of Gallinaro, to the labyrinthian nest of his relations and to the passionate, warm-hearted people of his valley. North of Naples, South of Rome describes a hilariously chaotic wine competition, samples the Italian cantina, instructs on market day haggling and surreptitious truffle-hunting, and investigates the charms and scams of Naples. It looks with disbelief at a tortuous bureaucracy, informs how to win a local election and roast a pig, observes the Catholic Church's role in daily life, and reflects upon a recent earthquake that saved the valley. Refreshed by a visit to Sinella's bar, the reader tours a carousel of picnics, feste, feasts and fireworks, led by the delightful pen and ink sketches of renowned watercolorist Susan Morley.This warm-hearted tour of a charming, intimate world is as enticing and as original as A Year in Provence.
