Creative layout, informative text and colorful illustrations make this little
book an excellent companion for visitors to Certaldo, whether in person or
as armchair travelers. Robel1 Hollander's paragraphs of presentation recall
the first time he went, "an experience both unforgettable and unforgotten"
in 1975, before major changes reanimated the home of the town's
most famous son. His words can resonate for all who have made that pilgrimage to the Casa del Boccaccio, church of SS. Jacopo and Filippo,
Palazzo Pretorio, and paused for a classic Tuscan pranzo at the Osteria del
Vicario or lingered overnight in one of the atmospheric guest rooms
tucked upstairs.
