More about the book: This comprehensive book on Italian heritage contains 20 encyclopedic chapters on every subject, from the arts and sciences to sports and entertainment celebrities. The author's ability to blend facts with humor and personal anecdotes makes this book educational and a delight to read. The book covers the wonders of ancient Rome, Renaissance Italy, as well as, modern contributions by Italians and Italian-Americans. The book is illustrated and contains an amazing collection of inventions and accomplishments. For example, Italians invented the piano, violin, opera, ballet, battery, telescope, radio, telephone (on Staten Island in NYC before Alexander Bell) and split the atom first. Did you know that the Lincoln memorial in Washington D.C. was carved in NYC by Italians, and that most of the world's most famous fairy tales were written by Italians, for example, Cinderella, Snow White, Pinocchio, etc. This book is a must for anyone's library and a great gift idea.
