A raucous look at Italian Calcio,
By A Customer
This review is from: A Season with Verona: Travels Around Italy in Search of Illusion, National Character, and...Goals! (Hardcover)
This book is anything but boring! Even more than Mr. Parks' previous books, this book presents both the beauty and the ugliness of present day Italy and Italian football. I especially enjoyed his portrayal of the Verona fans, both their good qualities (wit, camaraderie, fealty) and bad (fanatiscism with a touch of fascism). I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Italian football or Italy in general. Mr. Parks' two other books about his life in Italy, one titled Italian Neighbors, are also very good and highly recommended.
