Blood is Water
by Giulio Giustiniani
The story of a family, or better of families, told in an original way. It rebuilds uses, habits, ideas and education in the Italian aristocratic world between 1800 and the first half of the twentieth century. Written with irony and without prejudices, this autobiographical novel deals with Italian, British and Russian ancestors, and it is set between Florence and Lucca in Tuscany and also Venice.
