Tutti Matti per l'Italiano!


In this podcast I present my small friend Davide. Davide has just turned eleven & this fall will begin middle school in Bardolino, on the banks of Lago di Garda. He is just a little guy, but has a lot of creativity and a big imagination! Recently I enjoyed a day trip with Davide and his parents to Gardone, to visit Villa Vittoriale, the home of the famous Italian poet Gabriele D’Annunzio. In this episode I will be talking about the outing and I will tell you a little bit about Gabriele D’Annunzio and explain why he and his villa are so important. You will also have the chance to hear for yourselves how creative my little friend Davide is, because when he returned home from our outing he was inspired to build something really impressive with his Legos. In a message he recorded he will explain to us more about his creation.

I have just returned from a fantastic trip in Italy and just can’t seem to stop talking or writing about it. In this episode of Tutti Matti per l’Italiano I will be giving a brief overview of where I went in Italy and then I will be introducing you to three great friends that I had the good fortune of meeting during my long weekend in Rome. They are Keith Preble of Parola del Giorno and author of a new book “Il vero Italiano; your guide to speaking real Italian, Lucrezia Oddone of “Learn Italian with Lucrezia You Tube videos, and Claire who writes the blog: Runaway Day Dreamer. In this podcast I’m going to be speaking entirely in Italiano! So buckle your seat belts and get ready for a full immersion podcast!
