“We traveled to Italy with Diane and discovered that underneath the Bohemian girl from Dallas is a lover of all things Italian. Her insightful exposition of the Italian piazza as quotidian ‘theater’ is such a novel idea. One knows instinctively that her hypothesis is accurate because the piazza experience has such a universal effect. Under scrutiny from watching eyes on all sides, we each become actors on the piazza’s stage.”
“One of the things that brought us anxiety before departing was an overwhelming fear of the unknown when it comes to daily life in Rome. Traveling abroad should be about leaving your worries at home, not bringing them with you! Diane provided great detail that allowed us to have a good understanding of proper manners and what to expect when it came to the Italian culture. I can’t say enough how much more enjoyable and stress free this made our dream vacation. When in Rome!”Drew L.
