The Love Fool by Lorenzo Petruzziello

By Lorenzo Petruzziello – author of The Love Fool

I did not move to Rome to write a book, but I wrote a book while I was living in Rome. Walking around the eternal city, watching the people, and experiencing the modern culture inspired me to write a story and set it in modern day Rome.

I took a lot of time to define my discoveries with deep, colorful and emotional descriptions. I wanted the reader to feel as if they fell into the story, surrounded by the Rome I wrote about. A Rome that may not have been seen or experienced by first time visitors. If you’re lucky enough to have gone to Rome, then you most-likely visited the popular spaces: The Colosseum, The Vatican, The Fountain of Trevi, etc. In The Love Fool, I take the reader deeper into Rome. I show the reader other attractions that they may have missed: Largo Argentina and The Villa Borghese Gardens for example, play important roles in the story.

In addition, I wanted the reader to experience the cocktail culture and aperitivo hour: Typically, between 6:30 PM-8:30 PM Italians (Romans especially) all meet at local bar cafes to socialize and have pre-dinner cocktails. Most establishments also offer complimentary bar snacks that range from nuts and chips to focaccia and little pizzas.

My hope for the reader is that The Love Fool will temp them to go to Rome (or return to Rome) and include the city’s different side and modern culture.
