Carnevale, one of the most important Italian celebrations, is taken very seriously here in Piccolitalia and it provides us with great learning opportunities!
In fact, we’ve just celebrated a great Carnevale this year. Do you know that all Italian towns have their own traditional mask? It was great to learn about them and it was fun to discover from which towns and regions they come from… so we learned so much about Italian geography and it was fun! We learned that in Italian confetti are actually coriandoli, streamers are stelle filanti and pignata is pignatta… and it’s easy to learn when you have fun. This is scientifically proven, it is not a Carnevale’s trick!
