Description

The icons of contemporary culture finally find a forum in Italian Sketches: the faces of modern Italy, a book that dares to investigate the whos and whys behind one of the world’s most-loved countries. Drawn from Pirro’s column in The Florentine, Tuscany’s English-speaking newspaper, Italian Sketches portrays a nation whose modern cultural landscape remains largely undiscovered. The author’s articulate prose, accompanied by Leo Cardini’s eye-catching illustrations, captures the lives of those used to the limelight and shines a spotlight on many of Italy’s lesser-known masters whose savvy or sacrifice should not be left untold. Both dramatic and surprisingly candid, these intriguing essays reveal a country whose questions can only be answered one sketch at a time.
Deirdre Pirro leads the way through modern Italy’s trials and triumphs, showcasing the country’s ingenious savior-faire and shouldering its inherent social dilemmas.
