The Other Side of the Tiber illuminates Italy in an entirely new way, treating the peninsula as a series of distinct places, subjects, histories, and geographies loosely bound together by shared priorities and limits. A subtle and solid image of Italy emerges as does a multi-faceted portrait of the author. Earthquakes and volcanoes; a hundred-year-old man; Siena as a walled city; Keats in Rome; the refugee camp of Manduria; the Slow Food movement realism in Caravaggio; the concept of good and evil; Mary the Madonna as a subject--from these varied angles, Wilde-Menozzi traces a society skeptical about competition and tolerant of contradiction, and suggests the benefits of its long view of time and belief in beauty
