About this author

Barry Frangipane, a native of Florida, hosts luxury vacations to Italy. While he has read many Pulitzer Prize winning novels, The Venice Experiment is his first attempt at writing one. He is very proud that his new book exemplifies the writing style of Ernest Hemingway, in that they have each written books which contain multiple words combined to form sentences, and occasionally even paragraphs. He knows Italian, French, and the names of many other languages.

The son of middle-class Italian immigrants, Barry has lived in Venice, Italy, Paris, France, and Boulder, Colorado. As creator of Savory Adventures, he hosted luxury vacations to Italy with his wife, Chef Dolce Debbie. His entertaining stories of Italy gave their guests the inside scoop
