Let's read together and listen to the nursery rhyme "Pulcinella's invention"
Carnival just around the corner, we have fun together with the fantastic nursery rhymes of our friend Gianni Rodari
Giovanni Francesco Rodari, known as Gianni (pronounced Rodàri, /roˈdari/; Omegna, 23 October 1920 – Rome, 14 April 1980), was an Italian writer, pedagogist, journalist and poet. He is the only Italian writer to have won the Hans Christian Andersen Prize (1970). (read again)
Let's read together:
Ladies and gentlemen, step forward
the more people enter, the more you are!
Run to see the great attraction,
the amazing invention.
I didn't come to this market
to sell smoked smoke.
I didn't come to this fair
to sell gruyere holes.
My name is Pulcinella
and I invented the moz – za – rel – la!
This way, ladies and gentlemen
I am Pulcinella the great inventor!
To console the poor
I invented spaghetti.
To cheer up everyone's life
I created the Margherita pizza!
Oil, flour, tomato
nothing is worth this treasure.
People run to listen to him,
he enjoys himself… and buys nothing.
