Shopping For Italy’s Best Artisanal Traditions

We recently profiled the Civilized Shopper’s Guides to Rome and Florence, two handy shopping guides for two of Italy’s most popular cities. Landing on bookshelves this week is the second edition of Made in Italy: A Shopper’s Guide to Italy’s Best Artisanal Traditions from Murano Glass to Ceramics, Jewelry, Leather Goods, and More. Written by Laura Morelli, who has also written similar shopping guides for France and the American Southwest, Made in Italy takes you around the entire peninsula and provides excellent background information on artisanal goods as well as shop listings. If you’re traveling beyond Rome or Florence and shopping is your motivation, we recommend giving this guide a try.
