ITALIAN LESSONS Fifty Things We Know About Life Now

by | Read by Edoardo Ballerini

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Inspired by Italy's response to the Covid pandemic, this audiobook, narrated by AUDIOFILE Golden Voice Edoardo Ballerini, offers historical anecdotes, cautionary tales, and stereotype-busting assertions and affirmations that highlight the character of Italians. Ballerini delivers its passionate descriptions of the Italian core personality--in particular, a love of poetry, music, and food--with respect and delicacy. When he practically sings a list of names of sumptuous Italian dishes, mouths will water. Severgnini credits Italy's successes to its good national health system, the importance of family in its social structures, and the Italian unwillingness to fail, even in the face of Covid. Ballerini's flawless delivery of Italian words and an Italian accent make the listening experience feel especially authentic. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
