On the Spine of Italy: A Year in the Abruzzi

by Harry Clifton

The author and his wife became the first outsiders to live for a year as part of this small Italian community. They became embroiled in the politics of village life, learning about modern Italy, the relationships with Church and State, emigration effects, and how an old way of life is under constant threat from encroaching towns.
