This is how Dianne Hales began her journey. Question: Why and when did you start studying Italian? Dianne Hales: I decided to study Italian more than twenty years ago so I could communicate with the friendly people we met on our travels in Italy. Are you looking for a way to learn the language quicker without taking shortcuts? For anyone who has been to Italy, the fantasy of living the Italian life is powerfully seductive.

She portrays how social graces remain woven into the fabric of Italian: even the chipper "ciao," which does double duty as "hi" and "bye," reflects centuries of bella figura. This is how Dianne Hales began her journey. Dianne delighted in the beauty of what she saw but craved comprehension of what she heard. And so she chose to inhabit the language. Like Dianne, listeners of La Bella Lingua will find themselves innamorata, enchanted, by Italian, fascinated by its saga, tantalized by its adventures, addicted to its sound, and ever eager to spend more time in its company.
