Maria's Blog is just a normal blog where our Maria Paola (or Maria for short) tells us about her daily life, thoughts and feelings. In doing so, she uses normal Italian with no attempt at simplifying it. Luckily, the translation provided lets you understand everything. And if that is not enough, you know that you can always ask us!

Come sempre, stato bello vederla scendere cos leggera e impalpabile, ma il disagio che la neve crea alla fine la rende cara solo ai bambini.
As always, it was nice to see her get off so light and impalpable, but the discomfort that the snow creates at the end it makes it dear only to the children.
