5.0 out of 5 stars Eccellente!, 24 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: La Bella Lingua: My Love Affair with Italian, the World's Most Enchanting Language (Kindle Edition)
This is a truly wonderful book for anyone who loves Italy and all things Italian!

I can hardly believe that there is only one other review so far for this fabulous work.

I bought my copy as a Kindle download, but I sent a hard copy to a friend (we are both learning Italian, although that's not a prerequisite by any means).

Hales takes you on a journey of discovery of `all' things Italian via the birth and development of the language itself, visiting Dante, The Divine Comedy, Complete, Illustrated
Michelangelo, Machiavelli, The Prince and Fellini - I mention a handful only, because her text is teeming with history and modernity, and is beautifully written with passion, head and heart. The book is subtitled `My Love Affair with Italian, the World's Most Enchanting Language' - the author proves the latter many times during her journey of discovery. `Penso che fosse bellissima'
