Darrell Galli received graduate degrees in Business and Information Systems and taught at the University of Maryland in Italy for the U.S, Military. After two and a half years, he returned to California and couldn’t find any books for sale or in the libraries, written in English about his ancestor’s birthplace in Lucca, Italy. After much searching, he came across a very old manuscript on Lucca’s history by an unknown author and translated the manuscript. Darrell then condensed it into the only book on the history of Lucca, written in English. He resides in Santa Rosa, California now with his wife and daughter.
Unlike many other authors, Darrell welcomes contact by his readers and looks forward to conversing with anyone interested in Lucca, Italy.
