Synopsis

English artist Paul Wright and his partner, Nicola moved to the village of Moltrasio, on the shore of Lake Como in northern Italy in 1993, moving to the small, unspoiled village of Argegno in the early 2000s. In this, the follow up to his successful debut book, 'An Italian Home', Paul describes Italian village life, particularly focussing on the Italian male. His regular dialogue with a group of men who have retired, mostly from the catering trade, punctuates his adventures beyond the village boundaries for all manner of clients, both reputable and not so reputable in the surrounding area and beyond, to the Italian Riviera.
