Everyone knows the great Italian cities, everyone has heard of Tuscany and Umbria, everyone yearns to hear Pavarotti or drive a Ferrari or wear a dress by Valentino. Everyone fears the mafia. But who knows Lazio? And who on earth has heard of Avea? This is a story of discovery of a village and through it a whole country, that hidden Italy which lies behind the familiar stereotypes. Together they lived Italy's delights and its frustrations, its agonies and its beauty. And they grew to love the country in a way that is too often denied the foreigner - for what it really is rather than for what the world perceives it to be. There is instead the true story of how two foreigners learned to eat the Italian way, drive the Italian way, survive the Italian way . . . and even to have a child the Italian way . . . and how in doing it they came to love this hidden corner of the most visited and least understood country in Europe.
