Description

As his twin daughters approached adolescence, sociologist Roger Friedland was worried. The thing that most bothered him was not the erotic heat of America's youth culture, but the lovelessness of its sex. Offered the chance to live and teach in Rome, Roger and his wife, Debra, seized the opportunity to take their family to live in a city where love is alive, family bonds hold, divorce and rape are rare, and "ciao, bella" is a constant refrain.

In Amore, Friedland shares the stories of his family's enchanted and unnerving passage into the heart of Rome, and considers its lessons for America, where love is at risk.

Amore is a love story, a father's exploration of the ways of life and love in Rome, and what they have to teach us about the erosion of romance in America.
