Italian text

The author, who has lived in Turkey for more than thirty years, describes the charm and the contradictions of a country on the borderline between efforts towards modernity and attachment to tradition. With a smart and ironic touch she writes about typical features of everyday life: the turkish bath, the flavor of tea savoured according to the local rite, the religious customs and ancestral fears.
The result is the portrait of a world which deserves to be discovered and loved, but whose future shows also some issues and dangers.
