About The Book
The witty and perceptive companion to Italian Pride — a beautiful gift book that celebrates the most notable figures and words to the wise from one of the world’s richest cultures. Through their breathtaking art, exquisite cuisine, and unparalleled works of literature, the Italian people have proven that they know how to live and appreciate life to its fullest. And their influence on modern culture is stronger than ever. Italian Americans are now one of America’s larges ethnic groups, with a population of 16 million. Americans of Italian extraction continue to leave an indelible mark on the world, particularly in the fields of sports, music, philosophy, and cuisine. In The Book of Italian Wisdom, some of Italy’s most successful and sage sons and daughters impart their insights on every aspect of life — from love to money. From the serious to the seriously outrageous, these pithy, sometimes mordant, sometimes witty, and always wise words include thoughts on success, God, the meaning of life, family and friends, and much more. With quotes from Italian luminaries in every field, from rock stars (Frank Zappa and Madonna) to racecar drivers (Mario Andretti) and from screen sirens (Sophia Loren) to sports figures (Yogi Berra), this rich compendium is the perfect gift for everyone who seeks a true understanding of a remarkable people.
