Tourists often say Italian is the most beautiful language in the world. Do I agree with them? Not sure. To me French sounds even more beautiful than my language. But who doesn’t love French?
There are things I love about my Italino. The rhythm. The melody is bouncing. Sometimes it's soft and cool. You really have to work with your mouth and nose to pronounce some of the words. I love the sound of ordinary words like: mangiare (eat), formaggio (cheese), trenta (30), rinforzando (reinforcing). Cool words, aren't they?
