Few countries pack a punch like Italy. Energetic, enigmatic, and effortlessly cool, it’s a country of chic beach clubs, tradition-steeped hilltop towns, and cities full of charm. Its cuisine is celebrated around the world, its design aesthetic has become synonymous with both functionality and style, and it’s home to the undisputed capital of fashion; Italy’s appeal is undeniable.
It’s a country that feels comfortingly familiar for many, yet beyond the clichés lies a complexity and variety that’s perpetually surprising. For more than a decade, Monocle has roamed the length of the nation and The Monocle Book of Italy is the result of our dedicated reporting.
Join us as we throw down our towels at the best beaches, sit front row at dazzling runway shows, call in at vineyards, gelato spots and furniture fairs, and maybe even hit a disco or two.
See Italy through a whole new lens.
