It is a story of the Italy we all know and love, enhanced by the secret side of the country that only an insider can tell us. Francesco reveals the full glories of Renaissance Italy and the country's astonishing cultural diversity, which was only recently unified under one flag. he accompanying book, following the same format and style of its hardback predecessor, and illustrated with John Parker's stunning photographs, provides a detailed description of Francesco's cultural and artistic journey through Italy. Born into a distinguished family, with a Venetian father and a Sicilian mother, what better guide could there be than one who knows and loves this magnificent country?
