Anno depicts a lone traveler riding on horseback first through the Italian countryside, then the many marvelous cities of Italy, and then, going full circle, the lush countryside once more. As readers' eyes feast upon the detailed, watercolor images, they will see such things as Marilyn Monroe, The Last Supper, Rapunzel, and the Trevi Fountain, and the book becomes an interactive experience. Not only can the audience search for the lone traveler, but they can also try to locate as many recognizable figures as they possibly can.
