Italian Memories - Part 1
This song is based on a poem written by a Spanish poet, José de Espronceda. It is called ""La canción del pirata" (the pirate's song). Many students in Spain have to learn it by heart, so it is a well known poem for them.
When the students have read the poem it is very usual that the teacher asks them the following question:
Where is the pirate?
For all Comenius students who have been in Turkey it is easy to answer.
Follow the link to the poem (and to a quick translation to English that I have made) if you want to read it.
