Chiocciola Posta

BY jane, ON Wednesday, March 16, 2011

As you know,  I am a huge fan of Snail Mail. I have been working all week on some invitations for the Italian Consulate in New York. Since I have been immersed in this glorious language all week, I couldn’t help but wonder what Snail Mail was in Italian! Some words in other languages are just fun to say and I think chiocciola qualifies!  I received a comment from Tina on our blog about the Park Avenue sculpture roses, saying I should write Mayor Bloomberg and thank him for supporting the arts!  I shall do that immediately!  I will let you know if he writes back! I shall also write my elderly friend in Florida,  and my darling little nieces and nephews-so that they know at an early age the pleasure of receiving, and therefore sending of Chiocciola Posta! Who will you write?
