I first heard tracks from this CD being played in a local cafe renown for its good taste in world music. After getting the details of the CD I bought it. If you want to create an atmosphere of Italy this is a great CD for the job. Great for Italian Festas if you are learning Italian and your group meets socially as well as a class. Like some CDs there are one or two tracks which could be a little annoying, but on the whole I think it does create an atmosphere of Italia.
