Cultural Writing. The three essays in this volume originate from a symposium held at Florida Atlantic University, dedicated to the integration of the Advanced Placement exam within the teaching of Italian language and culture. Special emphasis was placed upon Italian-American culture, as shown in the essays included in INTRODUCING ITALIAN AMERICANA: "From the Old Country to the Old Neighborhood: Creating Italian American Literature," by Fred Gardaphe, State University of New York at Stony Brook; "From Italy to the New World: Italian Writers in the United States," by Paolo A Giordano, University of Central Florida; and "Italian Americans and the Movies," by Anthony Julian Tamburri, Queens College/CUNY. Each essay is offered in both English and Italian.
An indispensable book for every wine lover, from some of the world's greatest experts. Where do wine grapes come from and how are they related to each other? What is the historical background of each grape variety? Where are they grown? What sort of wines do they make and, most importantly, what do they taste like? Using the most cutting-edge DNA analysis and detailing almost 1,400 distinct grape varieties, as well as myriad correct (and highlighting almost as many incorrect) synonyms, this particularly beautiful book includes revelatory grape family trees, and a rich variety of illustrations from Viala and Vermorel's seminal ampelography with century-old illustrations. Combining Jancis Robinson's world view, nose for good writing and good wines with Julia Harding's expertise and attention to detail plus Dr Vouillamoz's unique level of scholarship, Wine Grapes offers essential and original information in greater depth and breadth than has ever been available before. A book for wine students, wine experts and wine lovers everywhere.
