Based on the author's true life adventures seeking out his family roots In Italy and France,the 'Finding Domenico' is a thrill ride of a travel novel, featuring action, excitement, beauty, food and the true Italian passion for art. Following the tradition of such stories as 'Il Postino' and 'Under the Tuscan Sun', 'Finding Domenico' follows its young protagonist Julian Shulz-Cannolicchio thru his first journey to Europe, where his father was born to an American GI and Roman mother at the tail end of WWII. On the search for the revered art of his famous Great-grandfather, Julian ventures into the most rarefied art circles of Rome and Paris, exploring the Louvre, D'Orsay, and all the finest galleries of Rome. On a Da Vinci Code- style quest thru the archives, he finds that his illustrious forebearer was famous in his ancestral Calabrian town, prompting a visit to Italy's picturesque south, where things get even more interesting as Julian runs into a colorful gang of art experts, party animals, rocknroll characters, and shady backalley art dealers...all the while discovering the beaches and the fishermen that Domenico had painted a hundred years before. ...And the action packed climax that follows in the soon-to-released books 2 & 3 is sure to be more than Julian Schulz-Cannolicchio had ever bargained for!!!
