“We all have, in our hearts, a courageous knight who is always ready to hit the road again.” Gianni Rodari
In principio la Terra era tutta sbagliata,
Ti volevi sedere?
Per non pungersi i piedi, né scarpe né stivali.
Anzi a guardare bene mancava anche la pasta.
C’erano solo gli uomini, con due braccia per lavorare
In the beginning the World was all amiss,
You wanted to sit?
To keep from pricking toes, neither shoes nor galoshes.
And anyway there was no pasta to be sure.
There were only men, with two working arms
