Reprint. Originally published: London: Secker & Warburg, 2002.

Is Italy a united country, or a loose affiliation of warring states?

Is Italian football a sport, or an ill-disguised protraction of ancient enmities?

After twenty years in the Bel Pasese, Tim Parks goes on the road to follow the fortunes of Hellas Verona football club, to pay a different kind of visit to some of the world's most beautiful cities, and to get a fresh take on the conundrum that is the national character.

A book that combines the tension of cliff-hanging narrative with the pleasure of travel writing, and the stimulation of a profound analysis of one country's mad, mad way of keeping itself entertained.
