About the author

Back in the 1980s, Dana Facaros spent three of the best years of her life with her family in a tiny hamlet (pop. 52) in Umbria’s Valnerina, without a car or telephone, but where she and her husband Michael Pauls were instant celebrities by the mere fact of having two cute little kids, who went to the local school and immediately learned all the parolaccia (swear words) in Umbrian dialect. Along with acquiring in depth experience with Italy’s public transport system, developing an expensive taste for truffles, having long Sunday picnics in the Piano Grande and learning how to tell one 14th-century painter of Madonnas from another, Dana and Michael have been writing in depth about the region and their old next-door-neighbour region Le Marche ever since, and go back to visit as often as possible.
