In putting together How to Live in Italy, a delightful collection of articles and essays written during her past ten years of living in Italy, Rebecca Helm-Ropelato has chosen 25 pieces that offer a wide-ranging view of Italy, its culture, its people, and its food. Included also are reflections on her own sometimes clumsy adaptation to learning how to live in a country known to many of its own as paradise. Sometimes serious, sometimes bemused, and at times funny, How to Live in Italy is a vivid account of an ex-pat's world. Helm-Ropelato is a former longtime resident of California. She moved to Italy in 2001.
