About “Loving Lardo”
Did you ever think to yourself, “I don’t want to just visit Italy, I want to actually live amongst the Italians!” Take a long sojourn to Italy through the eyes, ears and stomach of an American who left it all for a 17- year adventure living in Northern Italy. You may never leave …
In Loving Lardo, an American woman proves to herself that it is possible to not just visit Italy, but to live, work and thrive there, marry, buy a house, give birth, divorce, launch two businesses, then continue to live the good life with no regrets – even adding a couple of years of good living in Austria and Russia for good measure.
