Alice Reads: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING by Shakespeare
1 January 2013: I began the new year and kick-started my Italian Reading Challenge by reading Much Ado About Nothing. I picked this title because it is "set in Messina, a port on the island of Sicily, which is next to the toe of Italy. Sicily was ruled by Aragon at the time the play was set. The action of the play takes place mainly at the home and on the grounds of Leonato's Estate." (Source: Wikipedia)
When I did a search on the Internet for some of the acts and scenes, I found a few and they're cool! Source: Internet Shakespeare Edition

...fell in love with Italy in late 2012. How? When she asked her very first Italian friend for the words "chicken" and "duck" in la bella lingua, and the rest is history. Now, her passion for the language grows stronger than ever and she’s still studying it, having had and planning for more annual vacations in Italy, and indulging in stacks of Italian books or magazines. In the very near future, she is confident that the time for her to be fluent in Italian will come. Currently pursuing Latin, Spanish and MBA!
