For lovers of Italy, anyone interested in experiencing--vicariously or personally--the unique intersection of food, culture, and architecture in Italy's countryside, and for foodies enamored of Italian farms and agricultural producers, For the Love of Italy presents beautiful photographs and textual portraits (with travel information!) of 25 very special farms in Italy that double as small hotels.
For the Love of Italy celebrates Italy's countryside and its own farm-to-table movement with vivid profiles and luscious photography of the most exclusive family-owned farming estates. Tourists can experience romantic Italian country life in luxury, whether on a Tuscan Renaissance estate that produces Pecorino cheeses, at one of the largest family-owned wineries in Europe, or in a medieval castle completely surrounded by olive groves. Marella Caracciolo, an "editor on all things Italian and beautiful," has curated only the best Italian agriturismi and, with Oberto Gili's gorgeous photography, shares the stories behind the farms and what it's like to enjoy their artisanal crafts, whether by spending an afternoon sipping famous Brunello wine or learning to make pasta the way centuries of Italians have done.
