Although best known for her works on Italy and the cultural history of its gardens, Helena Attlee has managed to scramble over the garden wall at last, and make her escape into a wider landscape, where research for The Land Where Lemons Grow: The Story of Italy and its Citrus Fruit saw her travelling from a marmalade kitchen in the blood orange groves of eastern Sicily to the cold and bloodied streets of Ivrea during the Battle of Oranges. The book emerging from this journey combines history and economics with recipes, art and poetry to take the reader on a journey through Italy’s cultural, moral and political past.

This event is part of the Italian Day at this year’s festival.
