    Close to the border where Umbria meets Tuscany and Lazio, the city of Orvieto and the western corner of Umbria occupy a stunning and uncontaminated countryside that ranges from basalt and tufa precipices in the volcanic hinterland to rolling hills and alluvial plains of the Paglia and Tiber rivers, both of which are now regional parks. It is a history-rich... more...

  • Florence, Italyby Emma Jones

    Hunter Publishing 2013; US$ 3.99

    Visitors have been drawn to Florence's architectural and artistic treasures for centuries - and for good reason. But, with an historical center of only half a square-mile, it can be hard to see the sights through the crowds. The throng on the Duomo steps, the lines for the Uffizi and the jostling for photos on Piazzale Michelangelo all require... more...

  • Unter dem Vesuvby Holger Sonnabend

    Primus Verlag 2011; US$ 28.51

    Für die Betroffenen war es eine Katastrophe, für die Nachwelt ein Glücksfall. Am 24. August 79 n. Chr. brach völlig unerwartet der Vesuv aus und bedeckte die malerisch am Golf von Neapel gelegene Stadt Pompeji mit einer dicken Schicht aus Asche und Vulkangestein. Als die Archäologen später die versunkene Welt von Pompeji wieder ans Tageslicht beförderten,... more...

  • Adventure Guide to Venice & the Venetoby Marissa Fabris

    Hunter Publishing 2006; US$ 15.00

    This guidebook does a good job of presenting its information in a concise, meaningful way. You can easily flip through its well-marked sections and feel as if you are taking a trip all over Virginia! I like that each section (History, Shopping) starts with a quick intro, telling you the overall feel of that area. It's not afraid to tell you that one... more...

    Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 35.00

    Four generations of the aristocratic Barberini family and its "vassals" clashed over how the early modern Roman countryside should be governed. Villagers cultivated noble interference, but they frequently resisted it through the strategies of adversarial literacy, and political ways of reading and writing, that challenged the noble hegemony. more...
