Living La Dolce Vita – A Sweet Life the Italian Way
Maria’s unconditional love for all things Italian permeates her book cover to cover. A beautifully written and photographed book, How to Be Italian encompasses all the senses and spirit of what embodying Italy means to Maria Pasquale. Her words and description of all things Italian are heavy with deep love, passion, and respect for Italy. One can really smell the roasting coffee beans, see the ancient ruins of Rome, the canals in Venice, and feel the warmth of the fading sunset from a balcony in Milan, Pasquale speaks of. A self-described true romantic and dreamer, Maria Pasquale could only be Italian as she sums up the culture as something intangible and a feeling that is truly hard to express.
