Il viaggio delle parole
Every word in our language is a journey: discovering its origins and ancient roots means understanding the present and the way we express ourselves, thus paving the way for our future, which is always being built through our words. Who would have guessed that the “butterfly” has so many different names depending on how we understand the beating of its wings? And that “reading” means first and foremost knowing how to choose which women and men to become in the great book of life? Among words from languages near and far, the twenty-five etymologies narrated in this book are an adventure in discovering the wonderful freedom of human language. Reading age: 8 and up.
