There are many visions of Italy: One seen by foreigners, one seen by us Italians, and eventually, behind it all, there is the true Italy. In this book I would like to reveal to readers, through Aline’s inspiring photos, my Italy, and I hope readers will discover an Italy as true for them as it is true for me.
