Autumn drapes the beautiful Tuscan village of Sant'Angelo D'Asso when Renato Tizzoni's life falls apart. He agonizes that his world has lost its taste, its zest, when a startling dream prompts him to go to Rome to shake the hand of the Pope to change his luck. With brisk presentation, Edward Lewis captures the hopes, the worries, the tragedies within the small town, and elicits a profound empathetic desire of renewal for Renato and the other townspeople. Just as water symbolically ripples through this tale, Lewis smoothly draws the listener into the pace of their lives. Nuances of vocalization clearly depict the village characters, with touches of Italian blended deftly into the tale. The talents of Shapiro and Lewis combine to create an authentic Italian experience. F.L.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
