Praise

“This book is my ideal type of armchair travel: immersive, insightful, seductive. In Bella Figura, Kamin Mohammadi takes us to the year in Florence that changed her life, and gives us the tools to bring the grace of the Italian lifestyle to our own lives. It’s a reminder to slow down, look around, taste, listen, and to open ourselves to new possibilities.” —Stephanie Danler, author of Sweetbitter

“A beautiful meditation on the writer’s relocation from bustling London to bucolic Florence. It changed my mind in an instant, reminding me why I cherish slow living in southern Europe.” —Taiye Selas, The Guardian
 
“Mohammadi’s sparkling, month-by-month account of a year in Italy is a less exotic (and perhaps less self-absorbed), more outwardly observant version of Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, but without the praying.” —Booklist

“In this charming hybrid of self-help and memoir, journalist Mohammadi relates a journey that began 10 years ago when she left her frazzled and unfulfilling life in London for a year’s sabbatical in Florence. . . . [She] conveys life lessons learned in Italy (from the health benefits of olive oil to the importance of slowing down and observing one’s surroundings), alongside her progression toward self-acceptance. . . . Mohammadi captures myriad aspects of the charming Italian lifestyle, and her story’s happy ending is a testament to its benefits.” —Publishers Weekly

“You’ll fall in love with Kamin Mohammadi’s Bella Figura: How to Live, Love, and Eat the Italian Way, her memoir on moving to Florence and finding love (and self-love) in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.” —Hello Giggles
 
“A charming, delightful memoir of self-transformation. . . . Interspersed throughout with delicious recipes and bella figura–inspired lifestyle tips, the book is a down-to-earth modern-day fairy tale for the world-weary that celebrates personal transformation and all things delectably Italian.” —Kirkus Reviews
