ITALIAN FAMILY CHALLENGE!!

La bandiera d’Italia: What does the Italian flag look like?

The Italian Flag is a vertical tricolour flag with 3 equally sized bands. It has 3 colours; green (left), white (centre) and red (right). In Italian it is called il tricolore – verde, bianco e rosso. Each colour has its own meaning:

verde – speranza (hope)
bianco – fede (faith)
rosso – carita`(charity)

Your challenge is to create your own Italian flag using objects from around your house. The family with the most creative Italian flag will win a special prize from Signora Formichelli.

 

   This is what the Italian flag looks like.

 

This is an example of some objects that were used from around the house to create the Italian flag.

Once you have created your ‘bandiera’ please email a photo of it to me – jformichelli@htws.catholic.edu.au

I can’t wait to see each families flags!

Buona fortuna! Good luck and have fun creating!!

Ciao Signora Formichelli
