Bronté Dee Jackson

Twenty years ago Bronte won an airline ticket to Europe in a raffle. Seventeen years after arriving in Rome, she was still there. With a Masters degree in Business she obtained work at the United Nations humanitarian Organisations in Rome to support her addiction to all things Italian, and in particular Roman. Bronte's training in Social Anthropology (the study of culture), her ability to speak Italian, and her close relationships with her Italian neighbours and friends enabled her to understand and explain many facets of the Italian culture. Bronte spent 17 years in a unique and very traditional suburb of Rome, married into a family from the deep south of Italy, has never given up her quest to find the perfect Amatriciana, and once drove a hydrofoil from Sorrento to Ischia while the captain went for a coffee. She has written a blog since 2008 which won the 'Top ten blogs' for Rome, 2011, her unpublished manuscript won a 'First commendation' in a national writing competition and she finally published her memoir 'Roman Daze - La Dolce Vita' in December 2012.
Roman Daze is a collection of past and present stories, insights, and eating experiences from her time of living in Rome.


La Dolce Vita for All Seasons Bronté Jackson describes how the seasons, food, family, landscape, rituals and history combine to create and explain the Italian lifestyle and why, from the outside, it looks like La Dolce Vita.
