Everything you need to understand or teach The Italians by Luigi Barzini, Jr..
The Italians by Luigi Barzini is a brief study of the nature and mores of the Italian people. The book addresses the issues of religion, family, history, honor, art and more, which make up the fabric of the people and the country which have attracted the world's attention for centuries.
The author begins the book by posing options for Italy's fatal charm and the elements that draw countless numbers of people from all over the world to visit each year. Some people come for the sunny weather; some come to be educated, and some come merely to get lost in the sensuousness of her food, music and art. Visitors also range in income levels from starving artists to wealthy people looking for tax shelters. Men, in particular, come to Italy to pursue women who are reputedly more gorgeous than anyplace else.
