North of Naples, south of Rome
St. Martin's Press,
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.
