italyAnother book that combines history with geography and lets you know what you life be like if you lived in renaissance italy. It compares a bit of what it is like there now and what it was like before and what your life would be like if you lived in those times.

Again, the text and page color made things hard to read. At the end of the book there are some people who were famous from the Italian Renaissance.

I received a free copy of this book in order to write this review.
