Where Angels Come to Earth is a visual and lyrical journey through Italy’s piazzas, and a celebration of the richness and diversity of Italian culture. The piazzas featured in this book – some famous, some lesser-known – are still used today by local residents as gathering spaces, reflecting both the grit and beauty of daily life in Italy. The book is a guide to tourists in search of diverse Italian destinations and as a memento of cities visited.
