Contents Notes
Preface / Carlo Petrini -- Introduction / Alice Waters -- Via San Bartolomeo -- Arcigliano -- Paolo -- Sauro -- Un Americano a Pistoia -- Laura. "Exploring the narrative boundaries of still photography propelled artist Gayeton on a remarkable journey into the heart of hidden Tuscany. His magical portraits of rural Italians celebrate the rich cultural traditions surrounding the everyday pleasures of growing, selling, preparing, and eating food. With an anecdotal charm ... Gayeton provides an absorbing first person account of his transformative immersion in this rarely glimpsed world, offering an intimacy that carries us deeper into the images. ... Gayeton's ... photographs are layered with handwritten notes, anecdotes, recipes, quotes, historical facts and sayings that cleverly bring context and color to the subject of each sepia toned image ... Each photograph is titled with a traditional Italian saying and its English translation."--Front flap of clear plastic dust jacket.
