Product Overview

In A Childhood in the ABRUZZI, Art Zavarella takes the reader on a historical journey through his early life in Central Italy until he left his homeland for America. He writes well about his region and recounts events and things with brilliant descriptions. His passion for it can be perceived in every paragraph. He loves the valley where he was born, surrounded by beautiful mountains. The farm of his grandfather on the foothill of Monte San Cosimo and the picturesque mountain villages perched upon rocks. He describes well the beautiful cities and other places he had visited, depicting vividly their natural beauties, as well as their historical importance. He recalls his school years with great emotion, remembering striving to learn Latin, history, and other subjects; not to mention hardships caused by a war that brought so much destruction to the land he loved.
