The Dark Heart of Italy by Tobias Jones

Product Description

In 1999, Tobias Jones emigrated to Italy, expecting to discover the pastoral bliss described by centuries of foreign visitors. Instead, he discovered a very different country, besieged by unfathomable terrorism and deep-seated paranoia, where crime is scarcely ever met with punishment. “The Dark Heart of Italy” is Jones' account of his three-year voyage across the Italian peninsula.

“In his superb appraisal of Italy, Tobias Jones investigates the country's kickback and bribery culture, as well as its football, film and food fads”. Evening Standard
