Read full description of the books:

How does an Italian become Italian?

Or an Englishman English, for that matter?

Are foreigners born, or made?

In An Italian Education Tim Parks focuses on his own young children in the small village near Verona where he lives, building a fascinating picture of the contemporary Italian family at school, at home, at work and at play.

The result is a delight: at once a family book and a travel book, not quite enamoured with either children or Italy, but always affectionate, always amused and always amusing.
