#photorehabcovermakeover Week 14; The Incident at Montebello by Patti Moed

#photorehabcovermakeover Week 14; The Incident at Montebello by Patti Moed

It’s Week 14 of the Photo Rehab Cover Makeover run by Desley Jane of Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist and Lucile of Lucile de Goday. They have chosen another book by a fellow blogger—The Incident at Montebello by Patti Moed of Pilotfish. Ms Moed is an award-winning creative artist who’s worked as a university professor, writer, textbook editor, photographer, corporate trainer, educational consultant, and instructional designer; that’s some CV!

I have used a family photo which you might recognise from my treatment of it for When Worlds Collide. I can’t pretend the vehicles are spot-on for 1930 but I consider them close enough to give a flavour of Patti’s book (which I have already bought for Kindle and am very much looking forward to). The strap line I’ve used is my invention!

The Incident at Montebello is a historical novel based on a true event— In 1930, Italian Premier Benito Mussolini was driving through the Italian countryside with Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr. when his car struck and killed a little girl, Sofia Buonomano. The Buonomano family is torn apart by Sofia’s death and is caught in a political firestorm that spreads from their village to Rome and across America and Europe. One family member, 16-year-old Isolina, witnesses the accident and recognizes Mussolini as the driver.’

San Vitale Ravenna

San Vitale Ravenna

Ravenna, Italy sits at the literal crossroads between the old world and the new, between Western Culture and Eastern, between Europe and Asia Minor — it is a city that has seen much change in the past several thousand years, and this change is cataloged in its many churches and epochal architecture. While the City of Ravenna has much more to offer travelers than just its holy sanctuaries, today we will be giving our readers an insight into these buildings that — regardless of your faith or denomination — are beautiful living pages out of history.
