Some brief overview of book

From the bestselling author whose memoirs Under the Tuscan Sun and Bella Tuscany have captured the voluptuousness of Italian life in sensuous and evocative prose, comes a celebration of Tuscanys people, food, landscapes, and art, as well as the abundant pleasures of Italian life as it is lived at home, at festivals, feasts, restaurants, and markets, in the kitchen and on the piazza, and in the vineyards, fields, and olive groves. Combining all-new essays by Frances Mayes with contributions by her husband, poet Edward Mayes, In Tuscany is divided into five sections, each celebrating an aspect of Tuscan life La Piazza - the locus of the Italian village. Mayes reveals the life of the piazza in her town of Cortona as well as less-traveled places such as Volterra, Asciano, Monte San Savino, and Poppi.

La Festa - the celebration. In essays of feasts and celebrations, such as the Christmas dinner for twenty-seven at a neighbors house and a donkey race around the church near Montepulciano, illustrate how the Tuscans celebrate the seasons their open ways of friendship, their connection to nature, and most of all, their sense of abundance. Il Campo - the field.

Here Edward Mayes evokes the deep sense of the shift of seasons as he hunts for mushrooms and picks olives before heading off to the olive oil mill and enjoying the first bruschetta with the new oil. La Bellezza - the beauty. From the quality of the light falling on sublime landscapes in different seasons and Tuscan faces in moments of laughter, to a silhouette of cypress trees in the early evening and a pile of marmalade cats asleep, In Tuscany features views of beauty that reveal the singular splendor of one of the worlds best-loved and most visited regions.
