    4. I have been reading a great many books either about Italy history, biography, travel or using Italy as the locale As travel literature written by women, I especially enjoyed this one It was a wonderful collection of stories about a variety of cities regions in Italy from Tuscany to Sicily, from Milan to Rome Each author s personal recollection and homage was different, but each was really so evocative of the Italy I love.
