It’s a very fresh and perfumed risotto.

Thinking about changes… I’m not a fan of teen series or movies, but I saw this video and…

…read about Lemonade mouth. Sometimes I wonder what would Walt Disney think about his company today. The original Disney works might have been kind of frightful for kids… but sure the music (Paul Dukas) and the stories (Goethe’s Sorcerer’s apprentice) were on another art level.

Have you ever noticed…? “sorcerer”, which means “sortilegio” (magia, stregoneria) in italian… sounds like “sorcio” which is an italian word for “mouse”.
