Description

Deirdre Pirro guides us on a journey through 40 characters of contemporary Italy, showing the italico ingenuity within the historical and social context. “Italian sketches” tells a nation whose cultural remains largely unknown to outsiders, even the most passionate of the bel paese. The eloquent prose of Pirro, with illustrations of Campbell, they capture with great simplicity and strength the lives of those who were in the limelight, giving due importance to many lesser known personalities but whose ingenuity or sacrifice cannot be ignored. Clear and enjoyable, this intriguing collection of short biographies shows a country whose shades can be revealed only with a portrait at a time but whose total value can be appreciated only with this portrait.
