This addition to White Star's Italy from Above photography series takes readers on an insider's tour of rural Italy, revealing its hidden corners and unique geographical features, colors, and textures. A master of aerial photography, Antonio Attini captures the myriad delights of Italy's most beautiful natural scenery through hundreds of vivid photographs. The sculpted quality of the Tuscan landscape takes on an architectural beauty as we view it from above the area's vineyards flanked by majestic spires of cypress trees, interspersed here and there by farmhouses and moss-covered castles that blend in with their natural setting. Surrounded by velvety green hillsides and brilliantly colored flowers, the lakes of Como, Garda, and Maggiore also come alive in these superb pictures.
