"The Lanzis I: The boundless shades of life" (published by AuthorHouse), the new historical novel by Giancarlo Gabbrielli, tells the story of a courageous Tuscan family who resist the pressures of an autocratic Regime. It is set in fascist Italy and spans from the end of the Great War and finally into the specter of World War II. It is a story bursting with reality; one that is painful, beautiful and remorseless.

Well-known events are seen through new eyes in an original and refreshingly appealing way. The story portrays real people as they are seldom characterized in American literature: real, raw and full of emotion. "The Lanzis I" chronicles the adventures of a family who finds love amidst the hatred of a savage world while they endeavor to maintain a healthy, balanced perspective on their friends and enemies.

The book is also a poignant story of a young boy’s sexual coming of age, and his innocence is set against the backdrop of the war.
