Synopsis

Life in Italy has changed immeasurably over the past two decades, but some of the inhabitants of the small villages, especially the older generation don't seem to want to change with it, and neither do some of the business people. English artist Paul Wright and his partner, Nicola moved to the village of Argegno, 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. After selling some of his trademark Trompe L'Oeil painted furniture to some Americans, he finds himself working for one of them at his home in New England, and enjoying a break in New York City, where he discusses the art market.

With his typical Liverpudlian humour, Paul pulls no punches in describing the behaviour, likes, dislikes and prejudices of the people he meets.
