Publisher's Summary

One woman's story of finding beauty and herself - and a practical guide to living a better life, the Italian way!

Kamin Mohammadi, a magazine editor in London, should have been on top of the world. But after heartbreak and loneliness, the stress of her 'dream life' was ruining her physical and mental health. Gifted a ticket to freedom - a redundancy package and the offer of a friend's apartment in Florence - Kamin took a giant leap. It did not take her long to notice how differently her new Italian neighbours approached life: enjoying themselves, taking their time to eat and drink, taking their lives at a deliberately slower pace.

Filled with wonderful characters - from the local bartender/barista who becomes her love adviser to the plumbers who fix her heating and teach her to make pasta al pomodoro - here is a mantra for savouring the beauty and colour of every day that Italians have followed for generations, a guide to the slow life for busy people, a story of finding love (and self-love) in unlikely places and an evocative account of a year living an Italian life.

A beautiful, life-affirming story

I loved listening to Kamin reading Bella Figura on Audible. Hearing the author’s own voice made the colours, flavours and magic of Florence all the more thrilling. Her story accompanied me across the Pacific and then back and forth across the US, and with each flight I boarded, I longed for it to take me to Tuscany. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful and life-affirming story.
