Buon Giorno, Arezzo

A Postcard from Tuscany

Author: Suzette R. Grillot,Zach P. Messitte

In the heart of Tuscany stands the city of Arezzo, beckoning those who would know more of the real Italy. A spectacular medieval town of 100,000 residents, Arezzo invites travelers to see its sights and sample its considerable charms. It reserves a special warmth for those who wish to stay a while and truly experience life under the Tuscan sun. In a similar fashion, Buon Giorno, Arezzo invites visitors to make themselves at home. The authors and photographers featured here are kindred spirits—Americans, Europeans, students, and scholars—all touched by Arezzo’s magic and eager to share their experience with newcomers. Buon Giorno, Arezzo sketches the city’s unique history, from ancient Italy to the present day, with beautifully illustrated forays into its rich tradition of architecture and art—including the masterwork of Renaissance painter Piero della Francesca. Contributors offer insight into Arezzo’s language, introducing visitors to speech patterns and accents harking back to the Etruscans, as well as distinct dialects that put the region—the birthplace of Francesco Petrarca (Petrarch), a godfather of the Italian language—at the very “center of the Italian language universe.” Italians are known internationally for their contributions to music, fashion, film, and wine—and Arezzo’s significant influence in each of these areas comes to light and life as the authors explore the city’s vibrant modern culture and economy. A congenial companion and knowledgeable guide, steeped in history and replete with photographs of Arezzo’s visual delights, Buon Giorno, Arezzo is an essential resource for any traveler hoping to immerse themselves in the daily rhythms and cultural depths of this incomparable Italian city.
