Read in August, 2007

Iris Origo's diary paints a vivid picture of Italian life in the mid-40s. We read this book prior to a trip to Tuscany and we were able to visit her home at La Foce. It was so awesome to see it in person. The only thing I did not appreciate were the few instances of racial prejudice in her diary. Otherwise, this is a compelling read for anyone interested in Italy during the war.
