La Bella Vita: Live and Love the Italian Way

La Bella Vita: Live and Love the Italian Way by Leigh Aminda and Pietro Pesce is a definitive guide to the Italian life style.

I am not entirely sure about the difference between la bella vita and la dolce vita. People outside of Italy seem to think that every one in that country has a carefree life (la dolce vita proper). I’m sure that’s the goal, anyway. But perhaps la bella vita is doing la dolce vita right? Whatever it is, the book has “chapters covering each of the five senses: vista (sight), udito (hearing), tatto (touch), olfatto (smell), and gusto (taste).”
