About the author (2013)

Much to the chagrin of his northern Italian relatives, Cristian's loyalties lie with Naples. Such affection seems only natural for a writer of farce and soap with a penchant for running red lights. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Cristian makes regular trips to Campania and its capital to indulge his weakness for mozzarella di bufala and hot-blooded locals. His musings on the region have appeared in print from Sydney to London, while his Naples-based play Il Cortile toured Italy in 2003. Cristian's other Italian Lonely Planet titles to date are Naples & the Amalfi Coast, Rome Encounter and Italy.
