Mother Tongue: An American Life in Italy by Wallis Wilde-Menozzi
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 19.3 MB
Overview: A probing and poetic examination of language, food, faith, and family attachment in Italian life through the eyes of an American who moved with her husband and family to Parma
In the 1980s, the American writer Wallis Wilde-Menozzi moved permanently with her Italian husband and her daughter to Parma, a sophisticated city in northern Italy, where he became a professor of biology. Her search for rootedness in the city that was to be her home introduced her to complexities in her identity as she migrated into another language and looked for links beyond the joys of Verdi, Correggio, and Parmesan cheese, which visitors have rightly extolled for centuries. The local resistance to change perceived as individualistic led Wilde-Menozzi to explore the pull and challenge of difference and discover the backbone she needed for artistic freedom.
