Description

This is an amazing book about Piedmont in Northern Italy! Guide book, history book, cookery book, anthology of short stories - this book is none of those, yet all of those. It is a story of how a passion was gratified, a dream fulfilled. The rest somehow just follows naturally. It is a recollection of how an ambition to own a house in northern Italy came to fruition. From the first sinking feelings in the stomach at seeing an apparent ruin to the transformation to an elegant summer residence - and all the joys and nightmares it entailed. And all the people that were encountered in the process. The Bjorn family did what many non-Italians dream about but very few dare undertake. They bought an old ruin in Piedmont and completely restored it. This book tells their story and offers good advice and tips for how to make that dream come true. Jesper Remo and Erik Bjorn have produced a classic combination of stunning photography and compelling human stories about an area of Italy nestling in the foothills of the Alps. Stories that are haunting in their authenticity, the printed equivalent of a documentary film. The book is 304 pages of which approx. half is beautiful pictures of the landscape, the people, the food and the wine in the area. If you love Italy - and perhaps even daydream about it - you will love this book. If you're planning to go to Piedmont - this book is a must! The book was initially published in Denmark where it has become a bestseller!
