Item description for The Wonders of Portofino: and the Italian Riviera by Giuliana Manganelli...

For years, Portofino has been synonymous with la dolce vita, and in this addition to White Star's acclaimed list of travel photography books, readers are given a spectacular guided tour through this glorious region. Taken by two of Italy's foremost travel photographers, the images in this handsome volume present Liguria's diverse landscapes and architecture, revealing off-the-beaten track facets of this popular tourist destination as well as the instantly recognizable emblems of the region. Photographs showcase the historical buildings of the via Garibaldi–houses of noble families dating back to the 1500s–the architecture of the medieval center, the beauty and variety of the five medieval villages perched above the sea that, combined, make up Cinque Terre: Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore, and the fashionable resorts, marinas, and pastel-colored houses of elegant Portofino. Supplementing the splendid photographs, an engaging text takes readers on a memorable journey through the region's most noteworthy sites, highlighting the significance of the varied architecture and monuments. A concise history of the area is provided, as is a well-rounded view of Liguria today. A superb souvenir for travelers to Italy and an enticing retreat for armchair travelers, this volume is an adventure to be savored, capturing the many faces of this beloved region, both natural and man-made.
Giuliana Manganelli worked for RAI Liguria for many years as a producer of culture and entertainment features, including a program on artistic tours around the region. She currently writes for the culture and entertainment pages of the newspaper Il Secolo XX.
