"Secrets of Italy" Book Stack

  • Armchair travelers (aren't we all these days?!) will enjoy a "visit" to Italy through these two books:  

    • The Secrets of Italy  by Gordon Kerr.  Hardcovered, gently used.  Metro Books (2014).   Showcasing Italy in all its glory, this book makes it easy to see why this country is often considered a 'living art gallery'.  From bustling cities to idyllic and isolated hill towns, the best-kept secrets of this unique land are revealed through a collection of specially selected photographs. From the rise of the Roman Empire and the birth of the Renaissance, to the cobbled streets and white-washed houses still occupied in the present day, this book visually explores Italy's turbulent history and vibrant culture. Accompanied by insightful and informative text, the varied scenes of Italy cover iconic landmarks and  secluded churches and tucked-away streets. Whether you have visited Italy many times before, or are a stranger to this beautiful country, this book will delight, with its Renaissance fountains, beautiful Baroque churches, Roman sculptures and rural vistas.
