"Recommended. This is a pleasant visit to an interesting country, clearly showing that kids are the same all over the world. It would lead easily into "compare and contrast" activities. Viewers first see Italy on a map of Europe, then travel to some of its cultural and historical centers, as well as showing Italians going about their daily routines, which is nicely balanced by the view of a child's life through the eyes of two Italian youths." -School Library Journal
Italy is a country that has something for everyone. We begin this program meeting Gabrielle Manzini and Allesandra Grillo, who live in the city of Novara, whose modern section surrounds its treasured historic center; half an hour away is the magnificent Milan Cathedral, one of the greatest churches in the world; Milan is also home to the famous opera house, La Scala. After an exciting game of hopscotch, Italian style, we join Allesandra on a class trip to Venice, a city of 118 small islands famous for its canals and gondolas. Here we see the Grand Canal, St. Mark's Square, St. Mark's Cathedral, the Bridge of Sighs. To end the day Allesandra's grandmother shows us how to make Italian pizza. Next we get to view a play being directed by Gabrielle, which features his young teen-age friends. Then his family visits his cousins in Rome where he visits the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, St. Peter's in Vatican City; then they close the program visiting the city of Pisa to view its famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. 00/08DE PIJ 30 min.
