2020 Italian Storytime - January

Saturday, January 4th

10:00am - 12:00pm

 

 

CCI-NC hosted its first quarterly Italian Storytime of 2020 at the main branch of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Uptown, and it was a hit!

This gathering was especially fun, since we were joined by La Befana. Traditionally in Italy on the eve of the Epiphany, celebrated on January 6, La Befana is said to visit all children. She is an old witch who fills kids' stockings with either candy or coal, depending on how good they were that year. La Befana who visited our Italian storytime was lucky to find only good children in her midst! 

La Befana was a wonderful addition!

As usual, the group read Italian books, sang songs, and enjoyed great company. The event was also attended by VP of CCI-NC, Dr. Valentina Cecchi, and her children.
