Description - Francesco's Venice by Francesco Da Mosto

Following his enormously successful TV series and book, FRANCESCO S VENICE, Francesco da Mosta extends his exploration, this time taking in the whole country. He celbrates the art and beauty of Italy - its cathedrals, churches, palaces, opera houses, paintings, sculpture and music. This is a story of the Italy we all know and love, enhanced by the secret side of the country that only an insider can know about. RANCESCO S ITALY, like the series it accompanies, reveals the full glories of Renaissance Italy and the astonishing cultural diversity of a country that was only recently unified under one flag. ublihed in the same format and style of FRANCESCO S VENICE, and illustrated with John Parker s stunning photographs, this new book provides a detailed description of Francesco s cultural and artistic journey through Italy. Born into an old and distinguished family, with a Venetian father and a Sicilian mother, what better guide could there be than one who knows and loves this magnificent country?
