Get in the mood for your trip to Italy by reading these top books about the country.

The Italians has been in print for more than 50 years, such is its popularity. The book examines the Italian psyche in great depth, and although some sections are now outdated, it’s a fascinating insight into the people.

An Italian Education is another study of the Italian people, which will help you to understand much more about culture and relationships.

Christ Stopped at Eboli is a great read for anyone going to southern Italy. Levi describes the region, where he was exiled under Mussolini, and focuses on the abject poverty that blighted the area for so long.

The Sack of Rome is a biography of Italy’s former president Silvio Berlusconi. The controversial politician is a fascinating character that profoundly affected the history of the country, and this book goes some way to explaining why.

Calcio: A History of Italian Football focuses on Italy’s national game: soccer. The nation’s relationship with the sport is deep and intense, and Foot takes the reader through different themes expertly.
