Just finished reading Playing for Pizza by John Grisham. My attraction to this book of course was the setting - Parma, Italy.
I learned from the novel that Parma is the home of parma ham and parmesan cheese. The novel gave good information on Italian culture. Rick, the protagonist toured some of my favorite places: Siena, Florence, and Venice.
Here are my photos of a bronze boar by a market in Florence, a photo of Siena, and of the San Marcos church in Venice mentioned in the book.
