Title: Das andere Italien

Publisher: Edition Axel Menges Gmbh Okt 2010

Publication Date: 2010

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu

Description:

Neuware - The 'other Italy', that is the rural Italy, far from the bustle of the cities. It is the Italy of the Apennines, its natural scenery, its remote villages, churches and religious communities, its farmers, charcoal burners, shepherds and fishermen even if these old professions are now dwindling away. The author has travelled hundreds of kilometres through this rural Italy on foot, and travelled thousands of kilometres through it by car. Al-though he was acting in a professional capacity as a geologist, his interests went beyond this wonderful countrys geology to embrace everything it had to offer. In the year 1959, he embarked on ten years working in Liguria (north of Genoa) and twenty years in Calabria, on the toe of the Italian 'boot', on the flank of the Aspro-monte facing the Ionic Sea. Further visits to both areas up to the present day have contributed to his fifty-year relationship with Italy, and a body of Italian experiences which was simply begging to be set down with accompanying pictures. Eight stories tell of the land and the people, of the wild landscape of Calabria and its mafia, of rural festivals, Christmas customs, Italian food, abandoned farms and of 'Nonno', a grand-father. A wealth of photographs, mainly in colour, join with the stories in encouraging the reader to forsake bathing holidays and art tourism and take a trip to a near and yet distant land. 167 pp. Englisch, Deutsch.
