Overview

The Italian Touch is a collaboration between Donatella Sartorio, an Italian fashion and style journalist, and TOD’s, one of the most important Italian companies producing luxury leather goods. It includes more than 100 Italians of different ages photographed with their families, friends, children and an assortment of dogs in splendid historic palaces and the countryside, representing the Italian way of living and a certain "style" that goes beyond fashion and time. This absorbing gallery of people includes all kinds of Italian citizens, like the sophisticated Tuscan prince, for example, who teaches International Law at university, edits a daily newspaper and manages his large winery at San Gimignano. There is the handsome Sicilian prince who rents the family palace for events, but who is also an entrepreneur and owns farms and eco-sustainable real estate. There is also the young marquis from Liguria who moved from Manhattan to Monferrato to manage the family company producing oil and wine. They are all very elegant in jeans and moccasins, all "testament" to a current but timeless style that is undeniably Italian and famous throughout the world. This is a book for enthusiasts of fashion and style, but it is also for those who love period interiors, city palaces, castles in the hills, and Italian landscapes, all ancient but alive and vibrant as ever.
