As promised, a close-up shot of the Madonna and Child carved in stone above the main entryway to Palazzo Nesta. Many noblemen's palazzi have the family crest above the doorway, while some have a rendering of the Madonna, perhaps in a sign of piety.
Thursday, July 16, Palazzo Nesta. Palazzo Nesta was originally built in by the Nesta family of noblemen. It maintains traces of its late-Renaissance style facade. The walls of the facade are a bugnato , which was a popular style at the time. Bugnato means that the stones are not flat, but raised, in this case in the form of a pyramid, as can be seen in the bottom right corner of the photo.

I think it is THE best, but personal taste and opinion are crucial in evaluating such an important food group and everyone has their own opinion about the quality of ice-cream in the various establishments around town. If, in fact, one uses the pleasure of being entertained to facilitate the learning process, and if words are not only the chosen tool to develop intelligence and to liberate consciousness, but also instruments to create a playful environment, then laughter will spring naturally and unre- strained, a positive force that enables children to learn.
On a social level, laughter facilitates communica- tion, reduces stress and encourages dialogue. Such an effect can be experienced in any relationship between adults and children, at home as well as in school. By no means is laughter a simple tool. On the contrary, it is a subtle and complex one, and to use it productively one has to know it well. It should never be used as a weapon to ridicule any initiative taken by the child that goes against the norm, to punish the courage of nonconformity.
Instead, laughter should be used as a tool for the development of critical thinking and creativity. In a relationship between adult and child, the complicity and trust will be heightened and enriched by a certain ironic playfulness, if the adult will commit mistakes on purpose, modifying gestures and words with the intent of letting the child experience the pleasure of correcting him.
This experience will leave the child feeling empowered, having given him the chance to laugh at somebody older than he is, and making him eager to repeat the experience. Tickled by the idea of being challenged, the child will naturally pay more attention and will be an amused protagonist of the learning process, not a censored subject. Wanting to surprise the adult, he will experiment with words, creating new and original puns and verbal connections. This is already an example of practical teaching: you learn faster and better because the game is immediately transformed into research.
Even spelling mistakes can be corrected by making up a story that uses them as inspiration. It is clear then that we are once more faced with the issue of the courage to change. Laughter aids innovation; as it lowers the fear of rules, it allows one to be critical of old ideas and stereotypes, to dispel bigotry and ridicule the powerful, to break from conformity fearlessly. A Difficult Path Rodari died in The most difficult aspect in this process of emancipation was getting rid of the pedagogical structure into which most literature for children was confined. It was considered essential to raise children who would adapt to, or even embrace, the dominant political model.
Their characters display a practical intelligence, the ability to solve problems and to emerge victorious. When the characters resort to transgression, it is not by mistake, but through a conscious choice that includes the use of fantasy to solve problems. The weaknesses and hypocrisy of the world of the adults are exposed. The role of this world is lessened through the use of irony and criticism, which leave an open door to rebellion. Change is always difficult, developing as it does slowly over time, at the margins of the dominant ideology.

The techniques for stimulating fantasy presented in the book show once again how to invest creative writing with the gusto for playing and the courage of nonconformity. Even traditional fairy tales can be a source of inspiration. Many have selected only certain aspects of his work; the majority has written some work under the inspiration of Rodari; all of them have their own ideal vocation, their own creative voice, and their own poetics. In summary, Rodari did not inspire mere imitation but pushed other authors to explore new frontiers—a goal in keeping with his own desire for autonomy and nonconformity.
New narrative styles and literary groups are establishing themselves. The right to independent initiative and autonomy of girls is not based on the imitation of male behavior and tends to reflect female identity. We see stories that deal with the crisis of the family, social hardships, loneliness, eating disorders, and drug problems. Other issues to be dealt with are the sexual curiosity expressed by children and the importance of multiculturalism. In , when I introduced a class on creating puns in my school.
It testifies to the quality of results that can be obtained by playing with words according to well-defined criteria; it is a very useful reference point for those teachers and educators who want to follow the same teaching method. Rodari warned us against the apparent wisdom of platitudes and proverbs, which are the essence of platitudes.
Here it is: I apologize to the ancient fable, But I do not care for the stingy ant. I am partial to the grasshopper Whose lovely song is a present for all. Pitzorno is not only a long-time contributor to Italian public television, having worked on numerous programs for children, she is also a songwriter and illustrator, and has written influential essays. An example is her Extraterrestre alla pari , a story that is at the same time rich and innovative, passionate and funny. The main merit of this book is that it makes reading poetry accessible, not intimidating.
It unveils the possibility of a playful process of poetic creation, and it provides the instruments for a competent yet entertaining reading of poetry. Pictures and symbols that aid the reading and under- standing of the logical structure of the poems, perfectly in keeping with the spirit and intent of the book, accompany the text. In , he published his most famous book, Quieto Patato. If you want to cry, Read a sad child. If you want to learn, Read a wise child. If you want to investigate, Read a secret child.
If you want to sing, Read a music child. But if you want To be bored, Do not read the children. Leave them closed and speechless, Sitting In their childrary. Piumini writes: What is geography? Geography is Where friends live, The streets where you bike, The happy places. What is history? What is grammar? Grammar is Making rhymes, Playing with words Without feeling silly. What is arithmetic? Arithmetic is Me plus you plus us all, The beautiful and the ugly, The roots and the leaves and the fruits.
The difficult words bounce in the rhymes, happily mixing together cooks and angels, witches, judges, quails, wolves and bears. He transformed them into ballads,23 introduced dialogues typical of theater writing, enriched them with illustrations and added music to accompany the verses. He has also written for theater. Such a breadth of experience allowed him to develop a special ability to communicate and to innovate language.
Argilli was born in , Rodari in ; they were both members of the Communist Party and shared similar professional experiences, such as their work in the paper Il pioniere and for TV programs. The main character is a little boy made of iron, who always follows his heart in a world dominated by money and power. The tie between history, politics, and literature is well exemplified in both Rodari and Argilli. Argilli also follows Rodari in the way he mixes reality and fantasy and in the determinant role given to words and their power.
In his book Tante fiabe per giocare, Argilli uses fairy tales as characters whose personality traits dictate their behavior. Che idea!

Alla signorina Elle con tanto affetto is a collection of short stories in which Argilli plays with the Italian language. When Primo Rebaldo, the protagonist of another story, calls something by the wrong name, the object magically transforms itself into the one he mentioned by mistake. Of particular interest is their possible relationship with the innovations brought about by Rodari. Even if the issue cannot be fully investigated in these pages, it is worth emphasizing that there certainly is a relationship: the contributions of illustrators, theater writers and television writers and producers helped advance and improve literature for children.
The different languages provide mutual enrichment, and the coming together of different vocations and competencies seem to be particularly fruitful in this field. Artists such as Bruno Munari27 and Emanuele Luzzatti28 have revolutionized the world of illustration, similar to what Rodari did for the world of literature. As is always the case for creative work, which has in itself the ability to challenge conventions and limits, the borders between personal sensitivity, ability and experience must have been extremely blurred.
These illustrators, just like Rodari before them, transmitted in their work the urgency and desire for experimenting and, by doing so, they pushed others to look for new and original ways of expression. At the beginning of the s, Bruno Munari started a series of books called Tantibambini with the publisher Einaudi, which offered, at a low price, picture books for children; they were short and funny stories that devoted a lot of space to the illustrations.
These books are designed to help children use their mind as a means to free themselves from the societal conven- tions, which tend to deny individuality. The relationship between text and illustrations is developed in a field of research that yields very interesting results. Her stories often deal with everyday issues, treated with playful yet biting irony, an approach likely derived from Rodari. In her book Merendine, published in , the author presented a collection of short stories, funny and unconventional, that deal with very serious issues, always with a light touch.
Among the problems presented, we can mention the influence of the industrial production of food in shaping the taste of the public, and the effect of television and advertising on children; the desire for independence and rebellion against parents; the natural curiosity about sex. The main character, Debbora, is a young girl, with a feisty and unpredictable personality, who happens to be very photogenic and for this reason is being sought after by TV producers, who want to transform her into a TV personality.
It is the story of her fight against submitting to their will. The book is new in its format as well, with a hard cover and a holographic- appearing text. The power of the story rests in the communicative effectiveness of the illustrations, also by Rapaccini. The illustrations express her ironic take on reality and her ability to convey mood through her playful and unconventional use of color.
In particular, I viaggi di Giovannino Perdigiorno allows us to intro- duce the topic of travels, which has been a favorite theme for authors who, in different ways and in different measure, have continued on the path indicated by Rodari. Giovannino Perdigiorno is the protagonist of a series of rhymes; his travels to several imaginary planets can easily be interpreted as wanderings through different parts of the human soul.
In the rhymes, the stories or the novels, the wandering of the character corresponds to the hard work of the mind, when faced by the main issues of life, forced to construct its own view of the world. To quote some of the authors already presented, Pitzorno, in her Extraterrestre alla pari, introduces us to the travels of Mo, the protagonist of her story, and in doing so deals with the issue of sex discrimination; Marcello Argilli uses the wanderings of Atomino as a means to criticize the destructive power of war and, especially, the use of nuclear energy for war purposes.
In I viaggi di Giac, one of her most successful stories, de Hieronymis presents a double theme, which can be seen as a searching journey, the first one built on the interplay between image and words, the second one based on the adventures of traveling characters. The book tells the story of a little paper man, cut out from a newspaper, who travels to the lands of points, lines, circles, squares and colors,34 until he finally gets to know, together with Picasso, Calder, Morandi, Klee, and Matisse, the marvels of modern art.
Is included in a logical series of narrative devices. Beyond the poetic value attributed to the images, reality enters the story like the special threads made into clothing by the hard-working Lines of the story: in the real world, there are many people who work toward a better future, and just as many who only follow their own interests and pursue their own glory.
Silvana Gandolfi, a writer beloved by children and highly appreciated by critics, has more recently published a book in which the main theme is traveling. The key to the story is that all the people on the island have as much time to live as is wasted on the Earth. Lost time forms a black smoke, which fills the lungs of those who waste it, making them indifferent and foolish. All the ingredients of a story as Rodari would write it are there, from the unassailable logic of the fantastic plot, to the importance of the message of such a topical issue, the quality of time.
The initiative has become well-known and has had a most positive outcome, to encourage the production of good quality literature for children. Argilli, Piumini, and Pitzorno, among others, have been awarded the prize, and most recently, the brothers Stefano and Gualtiero Bordiglioni, for their collection of rhymes Ambasciator non porta pena, a satirical interpretation of famous proverbs. However, here he is seen as a comic figure, who has to deal every day with the conflicting demands of his diverse cargo. In the end the librarian himself will destroy the formula, but children will have discovered the value of reading and of using the library.
The story, well-crafted and deftly narrated, keeps the initial promise of originality, and develops through a series of entertain- ing plot twists. The topic of reading, so central in the life and work of Gianni Rodari, comes back in a metaphor, created as a call to commit- ment to all those who believe in children and in fantasy. Notes 1 Communist newspaper founded and directed by Antonio Gramsci. It started as a journal of political and social studies in in Turin; in it was transformed into a newspaper, becoming the official publication of the Italian Communist Party.
Accomplished professional writers Bruno Ciari and Mario Lodi were members. Nonetheless, among the different national movements, there remains a basic unity of intents, accompanied by the fruitful exchange of ideas and experiences, and by the willingness to cooperate. Among the nursery rhymes, see: Il libro delle filastrocche ; Il treno delle filastrocche ; Filastrocche in cielo e in terra ; Il pianeta degli alberi di Natale ; Il libro degli errori ; Le filastrocche del Cavallo Parlante Parravicini , and Minuzzolo , books that enjoyed a certain success.
