Appunti :
“Fare bella figura” encapsulates the
Italian ideal of “looking good” at all times. Here at the
Resource Centre the focus of staff is primarily to service
teachers promptly and efficiently but also to ensure that
resources are presented in the manner in which they deserve
to be. Hence, we ask your assistance in notifying us of items
that are not in the condition they should be. Of course, there
are many variables – cleanliness, damaged materials, correct
number of items in each kit as stated on the contents list,
blue tack, unsightly markings, all of which need to be
attended to. It is our main priority not to “fare brutta
figura,” or even worse “fare una figuraccia.”
Again, a final reminder that the Education Officer, Maria
Brancolino is only available at Co.As.It on Tuesdays and
Wednesday. As you are aware all Museo bookings, both
staff led and self –guided must be pre-booked online at:
http://italianlanguage.coasit.com.au/education-programs/museoitaliano-schools-program.html. Bookings will then be confirmed
by email.
A 2016 Subscription form is included within this newsletter.
Note the slight increase in cost. It is also with regret that due
to huge price rises in postage metropolitan schools will only
be eligible for one mail out per year. Country schools will
continue to receive unlimited mail outs. Orizzonti, “Il Centro”
Newsletters and other services will remain the same.

CINQUAIN
Have you ever thought of doing poetry in Italian? Cinquain poetry is one type that can be
easily used from year 5 onwards.
The American poet, Adelaide Crapsey, who invented the modern form of Cinquain may have been inspired by the
Sicilian quintain, the English quintain, the Spanish quintella, the Japanese tanka, and the French cinquain which all
predate her. What she did invent, however, is a distinct American version of the five-line poem which she believed
"to be the shortest and simplest possible in English verse."
The Cinquain is a short, 5-line poetry form, with a distinct pattern. This is an appropriate poetry format for
beginners because it is short, and does not require rhyme. It requires the selection of prescriptive words (nouns,
adjectives, verbs and a simple sentence) that create the desired effect. There are variations of Cinquain but they all
have 5 lines.
The following outlines a simple format of a Cinquain for students:
Content
L1
Mamma
L2
bella, affettuosa
L3 amare, sorridere, apprezzare
L4
L5
Lei è sempre disponibile
Mammina
Words
a title

a description using 2 adjectives to describe the title

topic

Come scrivere lettere d’amore :
per donne e uomini innamorati che non sanno come fare!
Communication devices such as mobiles, phone texts, emails, instagram and facebook are fast replacing the art
of letter writing. Until the middle of last century the written word in the form of love letters or cards not only
expressed feelings of affection but became statements of intention.
Reflecting a bygone era the following excerpts are from Come scrivere lettere d’amore : per donne e uomini
innamorati che non sanno come fare!
Dichiarazioni
Dolce, dolcissima Anna,
ti amo, ti amo, ti amo, ti amo...non riesco a formulare altro pensiero e mi sembra che tutti quelli
che mi stanno intorno lo leggano nel mio sguardo. So che anche tu hai voglia di gridare non solo a me,
ma a tutto il mondo quanto mi ami.
Ti amo, ti amo, ti amo, ti amo...
Paolo
Carissima Marta,
Questa lettera è per dirti che hai fatto un miracolo. Un miracolo vero! Sono sempre stato così timido.
Con le ragazze poi...Sapevo che, se le avessi avvincinate, mi sarei messo a balbettare o sarei diventato rosso
come un peperone. Avrei voluto calarmici dentro, ma non c’era nessuno che mi desse una spinta. Tu l’hai fatto.
Carissima Marta, questa lettera è per dirti....che ti amo.
Matteo
Appuntamenti
Il Centro – Co.As.It Resource Centre Newsletter Volume 23, Issue 4
Cara Lisa,
Dopo il nostro incontro di lunedì, così tenero e appassionato, il desiderio di riverderti non mi dà
pace.
Aspetto con trepidazione un tuo messaggio che mi indichi il luogo, il giorno e l’ora. Il tempo dell’attesa
sarà per me dolcissimo.
Federico
Cara Giovanna,
Finalmente una vacanza! L’aspettavo da tempo e quasi non ci speravo più. Sarà purtroppo breve, per cui
non voglio sciuparne neppure un momento! Perchè non mi raggiungi all’aeroporto? Arriverò a Linate il 17
mattina alle nove con il volo 319. Sarebbe così bello verderti, abbraciarti e correre via insieme per raggiungere
quell’albergo al mare dove abbiamo trascorso l’ultima vacanza.
Ti aspetto.
Enrico
Carissima,
Ti aspetto giovedì sera alle otto all’Ultimo Caffè. Questo incontro me lo devi. Voglio sentirti dire
quello che mi hai scritto nella tua lettera. Ti aspetterò tutta la sera e anche le sere successive, perchè non
voglio perderti. Ti amo.
Francesco.
Mio adorato,
Non vedo l’ora di vederti. Il giorno del nostro ultimo appuntamento è così lontano che ho paura di
dimenticare i tuoi gesti, il tuo odore, la piega del tuo sorriso quando mi guardi. Ho bisogno di vederti...
Cinzia
Il Centro – Co.As.It Resource Centre Newsletter Volume 23, Issue 4
Richeste
Mio piccolo grande amore,
è successa una cosa terribile: la sciarpa azzurra che avevi fatto per me è finita in lavatrice insieme
con i miei calzini e ha fatto una brutta fine. ...potrai mai perdonarmi?
Se mi perdoni mi comprerò l’enciclopedia del bucato.
Alessandro
Paolo,
Nero su bianco, ho deciso. Non si può continuare così. Da almeno due mesi tutte le volte chi ti chiamo
al telefono non ti fai trovare e prima che tu mi chiami passano ore, qualche volta giorni.
Non mi piace vivere di sospetti e dubbi. Io sono sempre stata sincera con te, ma voglio che anche tu lo
sia con me.
Marcella
Marina,
Quando sono rientrato ieri sera ero veramente a terra. Non mi è mai capitato di passare
dall’euforia alla depressione più nera in così poco tempo.
Perché ti sei presentata all’appuntamento con Federico, quel beccamorto che ti sta sempre dietro
da un po’ di tempo? Se in una situazione come quella di questa sera fossi stato io a comportarmi come te,
come staresti adesso?
Giorgio
Adapted from : Come scrivere lettere d’amore per donne e uomini innamorati che non sanno cosa fare! By Valentina Corti & Giocomo
Torri, Demetra, Italy 2000
Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine (San Valentino) is a celebration observed on February 14
each yearand is celebrated in many countries around the world.
St. Valentine's Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. Several
martyrdom stories were invented for the various Valentines. A popular account of Saint Valentine of Rome states that
he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians,
who were persecuted under the Roman Empire.

bullies. Lesson plans are available in English on-line.
Intended for juniors but suitable for all ages.

Italian Language through Art Appreciation
Of course, art is intrinsically worthwhile and warrants studying for its own worth. However, works of art can also visually
represent vocabulary and many events and experiences which can be very easily be integrated in any Italian language
program across multiple year levels.
The works by the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo (1527 –1593 (The Four Seasons : Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter) are
housed at the Musèe National du Louvre, Paris, and are of human heads consisting of fruits and vegetables, flowers,
petals,and leaves. They are the perfect segue for introducing language relating to such topics as the seasons, colours and
themes obvious in the art works. (A unit of work developed by Grace Alessandrini is availble from Co.As.It. Resource
Centre.)
Spring, 1573 Oil on canvas,
Similarly, art is closely entwined with a myriad of other topics and can easily be integrated into Italian language programs
providing a rich insight into both language and art.
Affresco Italiano: corso di lingua italiana per stranieri A1 & A2 by Trifone et al, is one of many very comprehensive
resources published in Italy. Bursting with Italian language content and grammar both levels include a page “L’Italia
e...l’arte,” and what ensues is a plethora of works of art by Italian artists, eclectic in style, from different time periods, on
varying topics. For example the chapter on leisure, introduces one to works by Fattori, Lega, Guttuso in “Il tempo
libero...nell’arte” all depicting leisure activities. Below is a copy of the content:
Giovanni Fattori, Diego Martelli a Castiglioncello,
1866-1870,

Pinacoteca

Fig. 4 : Giovanni Fattori, Signora in un

Other topics such as numerals, daily life, cities, food, are included, with the second volume offering art works to
complement famous Italians, homes, work and regions. For teachers and passionate art lovers this resource is
worthy of consideration for the images alone. Following are some further examples:
Giovanni Fattori, Maremma Toscana, 1894 circa, Firenze, Galleria d’arte moderna (Il lavoro...nell’arte)

Some Testimonials
On Friday June 17, we were extremely fortunate to have the wonderfully talented Nadia Cavallo come to our school, Nazareth
Primary, to sing and perform her popular Italian songs for Italian Day. The children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions, singing and
learning new actions to her original songs. They were thrilled to meet her as they had been learning the songs for quite some
time. I highly recommend Nadia to all schools. The children will love her just as much as love her songs!

Cavallo Capers’ Resources are fantastic, our clients want to borrow them frequently and I find that is never in the library at all. I’m
still waiting for it to be returned from the country and someone else is waiting!!!

Hi Nadia,
I am a teacher in Dapto, NSW. I ordered all your resources last year and since then I have used them constantly in my
Italian lessons in Year 2 and 3. Thanks for providing such quality resources. If you ever have new products, let me know
and I'll order them.
Regards,

Nadia Cavallo spent one day a week during term 3 introducing our kindergarten children to the Italian language, culture and
country through her fantastic Buongiorno Kit. The children and staff loved them both and we shared our journey with the families
by having a concert at the end of the term.
Nadia had a lovely nature with the children and was very patient and warm encouraging the children to join in with her.
Nadia's Italian lessons have been a fantastic addition to the program and have complimented the Early Years Learning
Framework. We look forward to having back again next year.
Grazie

...She's fantastic for producing her wonderful material, isn't she?!
I wish I was as musically talented as she is... her songs and her video and her activities too, have been so well-received
by the students. (Her own students must absolutely adore having her to themselves in the flesh!)
