Che bello!~My House is the Greatest☆~

Che bello!~My House is the Greatest☆~

I translated Italy’s new character song! It’s so cute~ I also explained the less known Italian terms below:

English Lyrics:

“It’s good to see you, dawn! Let’s work hard to be in best shape today too! Mm, yes…uwaahh, the weather’s so nice~! Ah, what a pretty bird! Good morning!”

A sparkling first day, I’m so excited! (Yahoo!)
What will we be able to draw in the cappuccino today〜?☆ (Ra ri ru ra~)

Mister! Hand me that flower over there!
Oh-oh-oh! The bucket fell down… (Vee~)
Uwaah☆ A cute cat!
Fluffy, fluffy, fluffy, fluffy~
“Uwaaa! I’m sorry!”

Che bello! bello! bello!*
Che bello! bello! bello!
Art, music, love, and food☆
Che bello! bello! bello!
Che bello! bello! bello!
My-my-my home is the greatest! (Hyahoo~☆)

Going to the Rialto Bridge while eating gelato,
Hanging out at the San Marco Square Café!

After playing with a loooot of pigeons…!
Ow-ow-ow! I fell into a pit! (Vee…)
Ah, hey, where do you come from?
If you’d like, I’ll be your guide!
“My neighbor is fun too!”

Che bella! bella! bella!
Che bella! bella! bella!
A superb view from the Campanile!
Che bella! bella! bella!
Che bella! bella! bella!
This is Venice, the water capital of the world!

“Fresh fish from the Adriatic Sea, it’s irresistible~! Ah! It’s already 3:00! Hmm…undressing, undressing… Siesta~”

“Even though there are various kinds, the meals are getting more delicious!
Brother and his subways…their construction doesn’t proceed for years, and the shipping prices in Venice are also quite high. Incidentally, suitcases have recently been prohibited because they’re so noisy… Veh…~”

“But still…only food is being protected with all my power! I promised Japan! Ah, Japan’s canned beef was so delicious~! I…should be able to make the same thing with my normal beef… I don’t really know what went on at the factory, but the taste ended up like a chemical reaction… Uwaaah! That was a terrible time! Please don’t come back!!!”

Alright! To a bacaro** by ladder,
On a gently waving gondola!
The gondolier’s* song is also sweet: O Sole Mio!*** (Bravo~!)

Che bello! bello! bello!
Che bello! bello! bello!
It’s fun when everyone is cheerful ♪
Che bella! bella! bella!
Che bella! bella! bella!
My-my-my home is the greatest! (Hyahoo~☆)

*che bello/bella: how beautiful!
**bacaro: a kind of Venetian winebar
***O Sole Mio: “Oh my Sun,” popular song in Italy

I’ll be translating Japan’s song soon!

One of the most recognizable symbols of Venice are its gondolas. Each is made of 8 different types of wood. The left side is 24 cm larger than the right, and each part of the gondola symbolizes a part of Venice - the front represents the 60 city zones, the back represents Guideka island, the central part is for the famous Rialto bridge. There are about 350 gondolas and 400 gondolieri in Venice. The average gondola is 11 m long and weights 600 kg. Up until 2010, Venice didn’t have any female gondoliers but this has changed now.

“Venice appeared to me as in a recurring dream, a place once visited and now fixed in memory like images on a photographer’s plates so that my return was akin to turning the leaves of a portfolio: a scene of the gondolas moored by the railway station; the Grand Canal in twilight; the Rialto bridge; the Piazza San Marco; the shimmering, rippling wonderland; the bustling water traffic; the fish market; the Lido beach and boardwalk; Teeny in the launch; the singing, gesturing gondoliers; the bourgeois tourists drinking coffee at Florian’s; the importunate beggars; the drowned girl’s ghost haunting the Bridge of Sighs; the pigeons, mosquitoes and fetor of decay.”
Gary Inbinder (The Flower to the Painter)
