Description - Elements Of Italy by Lisa St. Aubin de Teran

Lisa St Aubin conveys the essence of what Italy is by dividing it into the four classical elements of earth, fire, air and water - what it looks, smells, sounds and tastes like. The turnstile into Italy has clicked continually for centuries - Lord Byron loved here and continues to draw romantics in his wake; Stendhal concluded, "The charm of Italy is akin to that of being in love"; Vita Sackville-West grew drunk on her rapture for the country; and Heinrich Heine noted "simply letting yourself live is beautiful in Italy". And yet Italians love their country more than any foreigner ever can. Italians love of art, architecture and life itself is what drew Lisa St Aubin to the country. She explores the work of Italians Dante, Leonardo da Vinci, Goethe, Primo Levi and non-Italians Turner, Shelley, Truman Capote, Cecil Beaton and Keats - who went to Rome to die by the Spanish Steps. She also explores the constitutional impact of the 28 governments since 1945 and the historical implications.
