She chucked it all for love in a Tuscan kitchen

By now, most have seen the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun” starring Diane Lane. The movie is based on a semi-autobiographical book by Frances Mayes, who falls in love with a decrepit farm house, Bramasole, in the Tuscan hills and sets about restoring it.

Bramasole is situated very near the hill town of Cortona and has become somewhat of a shrine. Mayes’ book stayed on the New York Times bestsellers list for over two-and-a-half years.
