    Italy - The Places In Between is the title of Kate Simon's classic book from 1984.
    A later edition described it thusly:
    I love the smaller cities, the towns and the villages of Italy, away from the standard (although wonderful) sights and scenes of the "grand tour".

    Stones from older buildings were often "recycled" into newer construction. Sometimes these served as trophies, the spoils of war; one city state would overwhelm another, and then cart off the stones from buildings ruined in battle.

    Cremona, known for the violins of Guarneri and Stradivari. The first known settlement on this location in Lombardy (Northern Italy) was established 2500 years ago.
