Maybe, like me, you are dreaming of an Italian vacation in the fall. And along with the terrific food and wine, cultural experiences, and history surrounding you, Italy has plentiful shopping, with its own specialties you can take home as reminders of your treasured travel memories.
Shopping overseas can feel risky. Is the cameo a phony? Is the leather price a rip-off? Is that blown glass really from Murano? Laura Morelli has help for you, in her newly updated (2019) 3rd Edition of Made in Italy. You can check it out here on Laura’s website, or order from your favorite retailer.
Don’t want to haul a book around with you? Get the e-reader version, and you can have the book on your phone, an easy reference while you’re out shopping.
I met Laura at a Historical Novel Society conference a few years ago, and we share a love of Italy and historical fiction. We still cross paths occasionally, whether in the online world or in person, and I’m always happy to hear about her travels and writing successes. Take a look at Made in Italy.
And enjoy your Italian travels!
