Italy Now is a richly illustrated visual tour that captures the unique charm ofItaly. Kelly Barber's candid glimpses of Florence, Rome, Siena and many otherbeautiful Italian destinations reveal an unusual and arresting view of this wellphotographedcountry. From brilliant red post boxes against a burnt ochrewall in the evening sun to a mosaic of painted tiles embedded in a Sorrentopavement, Italy Now is a jewel box of surprises. With beautifully layered images, loosely grouped by place, we follow Barberon her discovery of Italy. Her gentle narration traces her experiences of theculture, landscape and locals and evokes all of the senses - from her feeling ofbewilderment in getting off the plane in Rome to crowded, chaotic streets anda wall of Italian voices, to the absolute joy she feels when sailing the turquoisewaters around Sicily, inhaling the salty Tyrrhenian Sea. Barber's eye captures both the incidental and the obvious in a refreshing newlight, and her observations and reflections move us to laughter and tears as sheshares her personal journey through this enchanting country.
