Description: "Sprezzatura, " which the Oxford English Dictionary defines as "ease of manner, studied carelessness, nonchalance, especially in art or literature, " was coined in 1528 by Baldesar Castiglione in The Book of the Courtier. It is the art of effortless mastery, of doing something difficult so gracefully that it looks easy.

Italian culture is a cornucopia of sprezzatura; Italians have made great contributions to western civilization and played a significant role in shaping the world as we know it today. From the Roman Calendar and the creator of the modern orchestra (Claudio Monteverdi) to the beginnings of ballet and the creator of modern political science (Niccolo Machiavelli), "Sprezzatura" will chronicle fifty great Italian cultural achievements in a series of fifty chronologically-ordered essays. Authors Peter D'Epiro and Mary Desmond Pinkowish will bring the same thoughtful erudition and sophisticated humor to this new book that distinguished What are the Seven Wonders of the World?
