Cassandra Campbell narrates this love story to all things Italian with emotion, precision, and skill. Her clear voice and crisp delivery combine with her fine musical ear to capture the romance of the language and the people. A dedicated Italophile, author Hales guides the listener through the country's history using the theme of passion to identify what makes Italian contributions to the world so extraordinary. She does so with dozens of profiles. Armani, Caravaggio, Dante, da Vinci, Fellini, Ferragamo, Ferrari, Loren, Michelangelo, Puccini, Valentino, and others are deftly portrayed. This enjoyable audiobook celebrates cuisine, design, film, and wine. It marches from the Caesars through Christianity and the Renaissance, covers the rise of the "Made in Italy" label, and ends with an appreciation of the humble but ubiquitous pizza.
