Salento by 5



Salento by 5 is a collection of richly woven Italian stories, written by three local Italians and two American travelers. A friendship begins in the Rome airport, migrates to Salento, the southernmost Italian region of Puglia, blossoms over food and wine, and culminates in a narrative filled with nostalgic and personal recollections of Salento’s unique history, culture, and people. Enjoy the book’s watercolor sketches, the local recipes, and off-the-beaten path travel hints that only the Salento by 5 authors can provide. Whether you are an armchair traveler or looking for a new Italian adventure in a not so well known region, Salento by 5 has a little something for everyone.

A Note From the Publisher

This book will be printed in paperback in color and is available in e-book formats

Advance Praise

Salento by 5 delivers well-crafted tales that appeal to all the senses from steaming mussels and freshly baked bread to traditional folk music and jagged stones underfoot in the sparkling Adriatic and Ionian Seas. The authors’ great love of and respect for the region shine through in both the prose and artwork, and the five different voices in this book dive into the traditions, customs, and cuisine of Puglia like no other I’ve seen. It’s simply a must-read for anyone interested in southern Italy. –Michelle Fabio Author of 52 Things to See and Do in Calabria

What a charming and unique travel memoir with stories written by an American couple and the close friends they made during their trips to the Salento. You’ll soon be falling under the spell of this special place and the people who inhabit it. Viana La Place, author of My Italian Garden
