Word of The Week


Il piccione - pigeon

I don't have much love for these rats with wings, but piccione is one of my all-time favourite Italian words. It's just so much fun to say! Every lunchtime over the last few days I've seen a group of piccioni congregating under a couple of trees near a supermarket. I'm not even convinced they gather there for the shade, as there are much bigger and shadier trees nearby. And there's never any sign of food being left for them at any time of day. If you ask me they're definitely plotting something...
