This personal travel book about Italy is written by the author of the prize-winning Allegro Postillions and The Strangers' Gallery. The author's travels take him to an Italy of neglected grandeur, hidden beauty and preposterous paradox - where the past lies in wait for the present and where history is never far away. The book looks at a magician's cave in Piedmont, Chinese mummies in Umbria, Tuscan nightingales and bumps in the Venetian night.

Although it can be read in its own right, "Now and Then in Tuscany" is a sequel to "Tuscan Roots" and carries on the story of Anna and Francesco Starnucci with their family in Tuscany. It is a lovingly researched account of young Giuseppe Starnucci at the start of the twentieth century when he accompanies shepherds down to the coast from his village in the Tuscan Apennines. This "transumanza" lasted for five months every winter and encompassed many hardships, including the ever-present threat of malaria, bandits and long separations from family. Giuseppe's adventures are re-lived by his great grandson's family one hundred years later. The two stories are interwoven, each generation on a journey of self-awareness. Along the way, there are trials and dilemmas for both families to deal with in their own way. "Now and Then in Tuscany" is a story of hardship, secrets and passion which brings to light the customs and people of rural Tuscany. The author evokes the particular scents and sounds of a bygone mountain life and her writing has been praised as: "a great combination of a true account and fiction."

Containing the letters and diaries that Goethe wrote during his journey to Italy at age thirty-seven, Italian Journey reveals his tremendous range of interests. His writings cover literature, art history and his own struggle to be a painter, various sciences and political events, personal encounters, and the Italian landscape. "In Rome," Goethe wrote, "I first found myself, for the first time I achieved inner harmony...." For Goethe the writer, this temporal and spiritual journey was at the root of his development from Sturm und Drang to classicism, a decisive point in his life and the history of German literature.

In An Italian Journey, Jean Giono describes his journey to the land of his father's people. A reluctant traveler (he rarely left Provence), Giono discovers a strange beauty not only in the palazzi and canals of Venice but also in wistful waiters, suspicious hairdressers, pugnacious men of God, recalcitrant coffeemakers, umbrellas, and field machinery. In Giono's world a stamp collectors' market can appear to verge on revolution and inept municipal musicians suddenly offer Mozartian joys.

Freud's Italian Journey takes the psychoanalytical texts of Freud on the visual arts and literature as its objects for analysis. While the biographical figure of Freud appears throughout its pages, it is not simply a psychobiographical reading of Freud, his personal circumstances and their relationship to his texts. Rather the processes of interpretation begun by Freud are turned on Freud himself, thus eventually displacing and questioning his theoretical mastery. Freud's Italian Journey also argues that Freud's interest in, frequent journeys to, and obsession with Italy profoundly shaped and informed his elaboration of psychoanalysis. The volume organizes its material around the major Italian cities which were the destinations of Freud's travel, and the sites of the artworks he examined. Freud's many Italian holidays were crucial for his self-analysis and methodology, but it is also argued here that his papers on Italian subjects must be read as texts marked by fascination and allurement, crossed with anxiety and resistance, inscribed by memory and forgetting. Journeys to Italy heightened Freud's sense of the visual, and it is contended that the visual dimension of Freud's writing is crucial to an understanding of his elaboration of the theory of psychoanalysis. The relation between image and text is at the heart of Freud's analysis of works of art as he founds a critical methodology in which the two are interrelated, image illustrating idea and idea needing to express itself in image, but neither finally resolvable into the other. Thus the argument of Freud's Italian Journey follows as its model the famous elaboration of the fort: da game by Freud, moving back and forth between Freud's life and his texts, between psychoanalytical and philosophical systems, between the written and the visual. This leads to the broader conclusion that Freud might provide the key to a new practice of criticism, and a new way of 'seeing' and understanding visual images.

The formidable Iona, a.k.a. La Belle Dame Sans Merci, determined to instil some culture into her alcohol-appreciating and apparently sex-starved husband, accompanies him on a tour of the architectural and artistic highlights of Italy, like the Grand Tourists of yesteryear. Unlike those tourists though, who often spent as much as two years, if not longer, on the journey, La Belle Dame Sans Merci has only one week in which to transform her husband as they explore the delights of Naples, Pompeii, Assisi, Florence, Siena and Rome. And if that were not challenge enough, he displays an amazing propensity for opening his mouth and putting his foot in it, not to mention getting himself into a number of extremely embarrassing situations...
