Alla fattoria!


By Melissa Cannavo-Marino and Sara

When I used to go on trips with mamma and nonna to see una nuova città in Italia (to see a new city in Italy), I often looked out the window to see le colline, le montagne o il mare (the hills, mountains or the sea). Un giorno, viaggiando a Pisa, (one day, traveling to Pisa), we saw a sign for a farm we could visit. We could even stay there on vacation if we wanted! The idea of staying at a working farm or agriturismo e` molto popolare in Italia. Many families do this in the summer to get out of the hot cities and to show i bambini (children) what it’s like to live on a farm. The word for farm in Italian is fattoria! We stopped by a farm to check it out for another trip and I learned lots of new parole (words)!

See if you can match the words in Italian to the English. Then have fun coloring la fattoria!
