The Good Italian Girl tops the Amazon charts after release. Callisto encourages embracing traditions while releasing the guilt, to give new generations a sense of belonging.
Adelaide , Australia - September 22, 2021 /MarketersMEDIA/ —
Celebrate where you come from AND where you are now.
As early as age 17, Callisto felt the pressure from the unwritten cultural expectations of what it meant to be a 'good Italian girl;' Stay close to home, get married, have a big family, and be the glue that holds everything together.
Callisto had other plans. With a mix of classic Italian passion and determination (that some might call stubbornness), she struggled to navigate the unwritten cultural rules, and ended up writing some of her own.
Through warm-hearted stories, Callisto shows that you can still be fully immersed in your cultural heritage yet be brave enough to stand out and be yourself.
"I encourage my readers to keep growing, learning, dreaming and release the narratives that no longer serve them."
Callisto knows first-hand how difficult it can be to go against tradition. Her journey demonstrates that you don't need to throw away the cultural traditions, you just need to create enough space for progress to slip through.
In The Good Italian Girl, Callisto shows ethnic women struggling to find their passion how to live life on their own terms. She provides resources to help women discover and share their gifts, how to connect with other like-minded people, and how to live a guilt-free, fulfilling life.
Now a mother herself, Callisto wants to clear the path for new generations to celebrate their heritage without feeling the pressure to conform.
"Let's celebrate and embrace the positive cultural experiences we've had instilled into us, and pass on those traditions to our children, providing a sense of belonging, freedom from guilt and allow them to be their true selves."
