Mapping out Tuscany - by Katja Meier. Swiss born, I've been living in Italy since 1999 and write about Tuscany in general and Siena and Montalcino in particular. My photos have been published by the New York Times T Magazine and Tiny Atlas Quarterly and my Siena guide can be found on Unanchor.com

My memoir Across the Big Blue Sea: Good Intentions and Hard Lessons in an Italian Refugee Home has been published this year. More info about the book and my job in a shelter in a Tuscan hilltop town (yes, that's Tuscany too) can be found on the book website: AcrosstheBigBlueSea.com

The New Yorker has published my letter on the issues mentioned in the book in its April 24 edition.

Just don't take anything serious the man writes - Tuscans are known all through Italy for their wry sense of humor and, thank god, plenty of self-irony.
