Paola and Her Piccolo - Italy
Paola and Her Piccolo - Italy. I Love Music! 7’
Twelve year old Paola lives on an island off the coast of Naples. She tells us that, in her town, every family has at least a sailor and a musician; the sailor is her father, and she and her brother are the family’s musicians. Paola plays the piccolo – the small traverse flute, and practices for at least an hour every day to get ready for the concert she is going to have in the port. While rehearsing in the mirror to perfect her fingers’ coordination on the flute, she wishes to perform beautifully as she hopes her father will come home to hear her play.
