Short Synopsis
Michelle Damiani brings fresh perspective to the American-abroad story in Il Bel Centro: A Year in the Beautiful Center.

Full Synopsis
When Michelle Damiani dreamed of living in Italy, she imagined her family as it was in Virginia—her husband filling every moment with work, her teenage son experimenting with sarcasm, her daughter smiling at the scent of lilacs, her baby-cheeked son methodically clicking Legos together, and herself hovering over the happiness of them all—only surrounded by ancient cobblestone alleys and the sound of ringing Italian.

What she didn't know was how Italy would work to change them all.
