    This is one of my favorite clips of a man dancing the pizzica: looks very restrained and elegant to me.

    I learned to sing "Tutti Mi Chiamano Bionda" listening to Orietta Berti records. :)



    Others that I loved and learned to sing:

    La Vien Giu' Dalle Montagne
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X187SjU3WHU

    La Campagnola
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQj6vo4Ti_M

    Babbo Non Vuole
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5vu1faWaKM

    Loved Gigliola Cinquetti songs too. My father wanted me to be just like her...I tried. :)

    How many times have you heard this? Maybe you even say it. :) E Qui Commando Io...
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJlqWi2VN2A

    There's a good reason perché comandi tu :)

    They used to teach “Quel Mazzolin di Fiori” in Elementary School.

    That's how they determined who had a high or low pitch/tone for the choir :)

    Oh no, it's not that way at all, not if you mean at home; never has been. Non comando io. At best it's a draw. :) I knew what I was getting into; he's worth it.

    Not here either; loyal assistant at most.

    First thing that came to my mind was the film "La Lupa" with my second favorite Calabrese, Raoul Bova. :)

    You can see it made an impression on me.

    Her dialect is not very different than mine, and she adds the I at the end of many words just like the Brindisini, ... we Leccesi add the U ... :)

    She says: pe cui me voli mali, pe cui me voli beni
    I say: pe ci me ole male, pe ci me ole bene
    “For those who don't like me, for those who love me”

    She says: occi ti ghiacciu e pelli vellutata
    I say: uecchi te iacciu e pelle vellutata
    “eyes of ice and velvet skin”

    She says: Caminu i notti, e guardu sempre a Luna, m’accumpagnanu li paroli ti ‘sta canzuna
    I say: Caminu te notte, e uardu sempre la Luna, m’accumpagnunu le parole the ‘sta canzune
    “I walk at night and I always look at the Moon, in the company of the words of this song”

    If I look just at the written dialect, I find it perfectly understandable. Sung, less so. Probably, if spoken quickly, even less so. I sometimes wonder if people from further north who claim not to understand a word of the southern Italian dialects are "putting it on". That said, certain ones are more difficult. I find some of the Sicilian ones difficult.

    I'm sure, however, that you would find Ligurian difficult to understand. So, it works both ways.

    Teresa Merante says:

    “Regina tilla notti, Ieu su chiamata”
    (Queen of the Night, I'm called)

    Ieu (Italian Pronunciation) which means I / me,

    In Lecce it’s also Ieu, but in Melendugno they say Chieu, in other towns Iou, Iu, Joi, (I’m not including the Griko speakers)
    ... and that’s just in Lecce Province, lol
