Living The Lingo of Linguine
Italian Words to Live By
by Teresa De Luca

Are you looking for a lesson in language and in life? If the answer is yes, look no further. Luckily for us, Italians have gifted the globe with their many contributions in the realms of art, opera, cinema, pizza—the list is endless. Although, one area which is often overlooked is the Italian gift of the gab. The greatest gift of them all. Italians possess a bevy of phrases to get you through all of life’s phases. So, if you want to change your life, it’s simple. All you must change is your vocabulary. Living The Lingo of Linguine will provide you with some of Italy’s wisest words, expressions, and proverbs. It will strike up a conversation of cultural comparison and translate these words, not only into English but into a carefully curated way of life. You are welcomed to embrace this language of longevity. To value a vernacular which will raise your vibration. To proudly pronounce an existence of peace and positivity. And to dive into a dialogue like no other.

"With her nimble spirit, wit, and fad, Teresa charms her readers page after page, leaving behind all those overused conventional clichés, replacing them with expert anecdotes and a sly sense of perspicacity." —Dario Castagno, New York Times’ Best Selling Author, Too Much Tuscan Sun “A cultural dissection of some of the best-known and loved terms and phrases in the Italian language, Living the Lingo of Linguine provides an insightful, witty, and engaging look at the words—or parole—that are at the heart of the boot-shaped country’s soul. Teresa DeLuca brings a smile to both readers of Italian descent and Italophiles… Favoloso!” —Rosanna Chiofalo, author of The Sunflower Girl

Teresa De Luca was born in Toronto, Canada. In a perfect world, you can find her sitting in the courtyard of her Tuscan villa, reading, writing, painting, or entertaining. But until this daydream turns into reality, she remains a proud secondary school teacher and Italo-Canadian. Teresa maintains an ever-growing passion for the art of storytelling and relishes in life’s simple pleasures. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, and is an avid traveller. Oh, and of course, it goes without saying, a prominent member of The Lingo of Linguine lifestyle.
