Carla Bruni. Giorgio Armani. Luciano Pavarotti. Giada De Laurentiis. Sophia Loren. The Leonardos (Da Vinci e DiCaprio). From fettucine to fashion and back again, nobody does La Bella Vita like the Italians. Whether preparing a meal or sculpting the David, singing an aria or seducing a lover, Italians take their time, and do it right-adagio! In this bellissimo primer, Romans Aminda Leigh and Pietro Pesce show you how to achieve that sensual perfection in everything you do, leading you on a smolderingly hot journey through each of the five senses: -Sight (vista): Toss the shabby, shapeless clothes and dress up! Italians take meticulous care of their appearance and are always fashionable. -Sound (udito): Act like an Italian and emphasize the positive whenever possible. -Touch (tatto): Touch like all Italians do-double-kiss, hold hands, touch other people's arms, and gesticulate! -Smell (olfatto): Take a ride on an Italian motorbike and pay attention to the scents of your environment-the sea air, a coffee shop, a flower garden... -Taste (gusto): Forget inhaling a heavy dinner-eat like Italians and savor a long, leisurely home-cooked meal! From fashion and film to food and language, this book is the crash course in Italian living every Italophile should indulge in, pronto!
