Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for THE WORLD FROM ITALY: FOOTBALL, FOOD AND POLITICS by George Negus.

"A colourful and thought provoking book, which offers a far better insight into Italy than 10 travel guides."
- Sun-Herald review:

"In early 1999 Australian television personality George Negus signed off from Australia to spend a 'working sabbatical' in Italy with his partner and two sons. Residing in a poky apartment in San Giovanni Valdarno, a Tuscan town south of Florence, Negus and his family absorbed themselves completely in the rhythms of Italian life. On one of their forays into the bustling daily market, they came across a T-shirt bearing the words: 'Football is life; all the rest is mere detail'. So began Negus's journey into the heart and soul of Italian life and the holy trinity of passions: football, food and politics. THE WORLD FROM ITALY offers a thought-provoking and challenging insight into how the world works today, how it could work, and how, despite the mad global rush to nowhere in particular, the Italians still manage to go their own wonderful way."
