Overview

La Dolce Vita University 2nd Edition should be a book of broad and perennial interest both domestically and overseas (particularly in the U.K., Canada, Japan and China). It could sell as either an impulse or planned purchase to any of these prospects:

  • all travelers to Italy: inveterate, first time (including foreign study students), and even armchair" voyagers
  • Italophiles, to deepen their love and broaden their understanding of Italian culture
  • "lifestyle" audiences with a keen interest in fashion, cuisine, personalities and travel
  • culturally curious "toe dippers" open to a friendly and easy entree to Italian culture
  • ethnic Italians looking to explore and more fully appreciate their cultural roots
  • gift givers for any of the above

Targeting-wise, LDVU has numerous advantages since there are myriad Italian travel, heritage and language teacher affiliation groups, organizations and businesses that can be marketed to and with whom alliances can be forged. Below is a sampling of initial possibilities.

  • National Organization of Italian American Women (NOIAW). The author is an active member and friendly with the Founder and Chairwoman Emeritus Dr. Aileen Sirrey; NOIAW is headquartered in NY but there are local chapters in all major cities on the east coast
  • Westchester Italian Cultural Center (founded by Genovese Pope) - the author is well connected there and has done culinary programs for them in the past and they will surely be willing to sponsor an event to promote LDVU2

  • The Order of the Sons of Italy (OSIA)
  • The Italian American Studies Association (IASA)
