Praise and Reviews
"What a lovely name for a lovely book!  Chique Secrets of Dolce Vita by Barbara Conelli  is part travel guide and part guide to life.  It is reminiscent of Room With a View, one of my all time favorite movies,where you are swept away by the gorgeous Italy and love.  In this book, Conelli masterfully details Milan and the sheer beauty of the Milanese lifestyle and point of view." (Andrea Katz, Great Thoughts)

"The book is not a travel guide with maps and locations to tour Italy; it explores further into the lives of common people and tells the stories of simple Italian men and women from fashion designers to small village bakery shop owners. It does not just tell about Italian art and its awe-inspiring museums and galleries but about life in general and how to make the most of it by being aware of who you are and by appreciating the people and the place around you. It is more like a “self-discovery” than just being able to witness the lifestyle and the rich culture of Milan. The chapters are short and words used are irresistibly sweet filled with the warmth of Barbara’s heart and made me feel the heat and soul of Milanese. I highly recommend this book to people who love to travel and unravel the mysteries of different cultures and who are open to learn and experiment new things in life, without any inhibitions. I enjoyed this book a lot and being a sucker for travel books, I have already read it three times. For me, it serves like meditation. It does not matter whether you have been to Italy, you will never go to Italy or you live in Italy, the book still offers something for every kind of reader. Just read it, you will love it for sure!" (Komal Mansoor, The Review Girl)


"Chique Secrets of Dolce Vita is full of delicious and beautiful Italian appetizers --- stories that will enchant, enliven, and entertain you.  But mostly they will remain with you and beacon you to experience Italy yourself.  The lure is overpowering, so be forewarned." (Victoria Vetere, Enlightened Life Coach)

"So to date, in my lifetime I have visited and experienced the dolce vita of Rome, Florence, Pisa and most of Tuscany in Italy. Now I can add Milan, and truly believe I have experienced it and its amour first hand as I have the other cities. The difference is I have never physically been in Milan, but after reading the beautiful account of “the sweet life” of this fabulous northern Italian city by Barbara Conelli in her book, CHIQUE SECRETS OF DOLCE VITA, I feel I have been there without leaving the comfort of my reading chair.  From the first word you are enveloped into the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of Milan and the surrounding sights. You are gripped by her account of her experiences in this great city until the last page." (Tamara Elizabeth, Moximize.Me Author and Speaker)
