In these days, the middle school was inaugurated in Naro, and Piero was present.
The school was already existing but was closed for several years due to restructuring.
In this video that I send you there is the speech that Piero has done in front of the students and their parents.
Bravo Piero !!!
I translate Piero’s speech for you.
When I was in elementary school, they told me that in the first year of middle school teacher NISI had the students sing, so this was the exam I had to overcome, and I could not wait to start middle school.
I found myself in the first desk and teacher Nisi says “Piero Barone, sing!” and I sang such UN AMORE COSI’ GRANDE as the first song.
The mayor indicates with his finger to Piero the teacher Nisi and Piero confirms, saying “yes she is here” – (applause)
So you guys are in good hands. Of course I do not hide that my favorite moment of the school day was the recreation for to eat the sandwich or lunch time. I did not like the gym because I was that chubby.
Today I see so many guys that I meet on the street and maybe many do not know them, but the heart is filled with joy to see many guys with musical instruments.
This is the message that I always try to send to children and especially parents, to give a musical instrument to their children. Today the majority of the time we spend in front of the phone and we waste a lot of time.
Congratulations really guys, because we see that there is so much effort, so much dedication. Congratulations to the teachers because it is not easy for you students “to play the musical canon” that is, each chasing a different time.
I trained at your age with the choir in Agrigento, but the message is addressed to you students, who can always try to play an instrument, to learn something about music, even in art and even in the gym with physical education , because it is from the small things that the great passions are born.
Congratulations to those who have done this wonderful job. I remember this school in which I spent a year, “a year or two years?” (asks confirmation to the teacher Nisi who confirms one year) then there was the restructuring.
Anyway guys, good luck, study and be patient with the teachers, what can you do?
Keep it up, love yourself, I love you, and AD MAIORA.
How sweet our Piero when he talks about his teacher.
Does not it seem to you too?
Grazie Daniela for translation!
