Show synopsis From the natural splendors of the Bel Paese--beautiful country--to the manmade treasures of art and architecture, this oversize, exquisitely illustrated volume captures the irresistible magic of Italia. Generously-sized photographs showcase the incredible variety of Italy's landscapes: the fertile fields of Tuscany and the Po Valley; the wild beauty of the south with its volcanoes; the majesty and might of some of the highest mountains in Europe; the vitality of the islands and coastlines. Visit the coastal villages of Liguria, the hilltop hamlets of Umbria, the fashion and culture capitals of Milan and Rome, and the ancient routes trodden by the Romans, barbarians, medieval pilgrims, and Renaissance armies. Whether displaying the fishing town and seaside resort of Terracina, nestled at the feet of the Ausoni Mountains and at the edge of deep blue waters, or the remarkable towers of San Gimignano, every gorgeous page is alluring.
