In his most recent book about Calabria, Michael Caputo, author of The Coin From Calabria, enlightens the reader about the evolution of the Southern Italian Region during the past half century.

The author analyses the strengths and weaknesses of his Calabrian people and frames it all with both joyful and heart-wrenching memories.

Under a Lion Sun dissects and exposes beliefs, customs and traits which both ennoble and at times limit a very energetic and intelligent people.

If your roots are in Calabria or if you are interested in cultural anthropology, you will find this work most enlightening.

A collection of Calabrian proverbs has been added. The proverbs have been translated into English.

"...the book's overall feeling and content...is filled with love, intelligence and lots of mainly positive memories." (Italophile Book Reviews)
