Louise Fili’s latest Italian guidebook, “Italianissimo”, is yet another beautiful treasure, like her 2007 classic “The Civilized Shopper’s Guide to Florence”, which showcases the numerous things that Italians do best. This cultural guide once again makes us long for the Italian lifestyle. From the history of pizza to the tale of Pinocchio and its lasting success, or how and when Italians take their espresso, it’s a charming and amusing catalog of all things Italian we love, whether high or low brow. Each spread contains one mini-essay with a gorgeous accompanying image.
