Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ten Fascinating Books about Living in a Foreign Country"-- Huffington Post, August 2016.
"If you can't get yourself to Italy for an extended stay, Il Bel Centro is a worthy substitute. Highly recommended." --Michelle Fabio, Bleeding Espresso, reviewing for Spring 2016 issue of Ambassador, the magazine of the National Italian American Foundation (NIAF)
"For those with small children who want to livein Italy, 'Il Bel Centro' is a must read. ...'Il Bel Centro' reads in many wayslike a romance novel. In this case it is the author who falls in love with acountry and way of life...It is a grand book..."-- PRIMO magazine, October, 2016
"Nine books about living in central Italy" --Martha's Italy, August, 2016

About the Author

Michelle Damiani is a freelance writer, clinical psychologist, and food lover currently living in Charlottesville, VA. Her heart, however, is in Spello, Italy, where she and her family spent a year growing accustomed to being fish out of water, grappling with the hardships of parenting on foreign soil, and ultimately cleaving into the soul of Italian village life. Before that year abroad, Michelle wrote short fiction--one of her stories was recently awarded first place in the Hook Short Fiction contest, juried by author John Grisham. While in Italy, she used the time that her children were in Italian public schools to write a blog about their experiences. The blog, Il Bel Centro, was awarded the bronze award for best Italian blog by Expatsblog. Once back in Charlottesville, she transformed the blog into a book, Il Bel Centro: a Year in the Beautiful Center, now available in print and e-book.
