    Thank you for sharing these words of happiness and hope. I love Italy and Italian people because they really know how to enjoy life. So the words I wish to share with you to brighten your day are DOLCE VITA–it is the Italian way of life. I see many people embracing it by singing on their balconies, even in these difficult times.

    Meraviglioso! Funny that we have so many of these same words in English, but with the Italian cadence, they sound so much more uplifting. Magnifico! Stupendo! Fantastico! Ciao, amica!

      Grazie grazie grazie! I didn’t go for the words with beauty because I knew them 😉 So I wrote the words that were new to me too. And they turned out to be so familiar!

    Lovely and inspiring post! Thinking of sharing some of the words with my students for some vocabulary skills. It would be fun to draw connections to English words by seeing their Italian counterparts.
